Actress Jennifer Garner has recently given a candid interview for InStyle magazine and has shared some secrets about her marriage of nine years to fellow Hollywood star, Ben Affleck.

They are in a very mindful place

According to Jennifer, the secret for a long and happy marriage is always trying to be better, treating your significant other with respect, but also knowing when to forgive and what to let slide.

“You can’t expect to be courted all the time, and I don’t want to court him right now – I don’t have the energy,” the actress was sincere.

“But we’re definitely in a very mindful place where we’re making an effort to be together, do things at the same time, and be loving.”

Playing complementary roles is the key

The famous Hollywood couple has two lovely daughters – Violet, 8, Seraphina, 5, and a two-year-old son Samuel, and when it comes to keeping the things fresh and under control, it seems that Jennifer and Ben found the right formula, and that is different roles – same goal.

“I know who wants what for lunch, and I’ve done all the school paperwork and filled out the emergency cards,” said Jennifer.

“Ben doesn’t know that stuff exist, but he is in charge of laughter. No matter how much I tickle them or toss them or chase them around, it’s not the same. If I’m the slow, steady drumbeat, he’s the jazz.
