You probably don’t need us to tell you that Jennifer Garner is one of the most famous women in the world. While she may be an A-list actress with a host of Hollywood movies under her belt, fans love her for her down-to-earth personality and her wholesome way of life. Of course, she’s also been mixed up in celebrity drama over the years – most notably with her ex-husband Ben Affleck. But did you know that Ben was actually her second husband?

Before Ben and Jen came along, there was Jen and Scott. Not many people realize that the actor Scott Foley was Jennifer Garner’s very first husband and that their dynamic was incredibly different from her second high-profile marriage. For many years, very little was known about this under-the-radar relationship, but in recent months Scott has finally opened up about his marriage to the woman everyone loves. And he’s unleashed some pretty dramatic secrets…

Although Jennifer Garner Is a Huge Name in Hollywood, Her Ex-Husband Was Once More Famous Than Her

Fans of Jennifer Garner have followed her impressive career for decades, but when they learn that she was married to Scott Foley they’re pretty surprised – and it’s not hard to understand why. While Scott is arguably extremely talented and a famous actor in the world of Hollywood, his ex-wife is in a completely different league. Scott is largely known for his TV work, while Jennifer is schmoozing at A-list parties and starring in mega-blockbusters.

But what’s even more surprising is that, when Jennifer and Scott first met, things were very different. Scott was considered to be way more famous than she could have ever hoped to have been at the time, as Jennifer was just a young actress struggling to make it in the world of fame and fortune. Little did she or her ex-husband know that she would later go on to become one of the most recognizable faces of all time.

Jennifer and Scott Both Landed Their First Professional Acting Gigs in 1995, but Scott’s Career Took off First

Of course, it’s clear to see that Jennifer and Scott had things in common. Amazingly, they both landed their very first professional gigs in the same year of 1995, and for a few years they both took on small and minor roles here and there. But it was in 1998 that Scott Foley’s life changed forever, as he bagged himself a leading role in the popular drama television series, Felicity.

When Scott was cast as womanizer Noel Crane, he had no idea that he would become a fan sensation overnight. His youthful looks, his charming ways, and his acting talent made him a favorite amongst viewers across the globe, and this only heightened his place within the limelight. In fact, countless people had a crush on him and his character. But he was only a one-woman man… and he was soon going to meet her.

Scott Was a Main Character in Felicity and Met Jennifer When She Was Given a Three-Episode Stint on the Show

Across four years and 84 episodes, Scott Foley not only brought the character of Noel Crane to life, but he also brought the whole show to life. Many fans tuned in each week just to see him, and it’s an experience that the actor will remember forever. During this time he also got to work alongside huge actors such as Keri Russel, Scott Speedman, and Amy Jo Johnson.

However, this role on Felicity also gave Scott the chance to work with up-and-coming actors who scored small, supporting roles on the show – like Jennifer Garner. And in 1998, this young and relatively unknown actress was given a three-episode stint on the TV drama, and it would change her life in more ways than one.

Although Jennifer Wanted to Focus On Her Performance in Felicity, She Found Herself Being Drawn to Scott

Considering Jennifer had struggled for years to find a role in a big production, she was over the moon to be offered the opportunity to star in Felicity. She hoped that it would be a worthy stepping stone towards the next stage of her career, and she wanted to make a good impression with the cast and crew – despite her small role.

And while Jennifer certainly proved her worth as an actress, she also realized on the set of this show that she just couldn’t stay away from one particular actor. Although she knew that there were thousands of other girls in the world who had a crush on Scott Foley, there was something about him in person that captivated her. So, she decided to get to know him better behind the scenes.

Jennifer Played Scott’s On-Screen Girlfriend, but Their On-Screen Chemistry Wasn’t Made up for the Cameras

Jennifer thought that she was extremely lucky to star in the show, but she felt even luckier with the character and the role that she was given. After all, she didn’t just play a random character. She was actually cast to play one of Scott’s many girlfriends, which meant that she couldn’t ignore the connection between her co-star.

While fans praised Scott and Jennifer for showing their on-screen chemistry, it seems as though they didn’t really have to pretend when it came to their attraction for each other. They were spending more and more time together during their breaks, and they were exploring their connection further. Scott even confirmed himself that “We hit it off instantly.”

After Working Together, the Couple Continued Their Relationship and Even Got Married in 2000

After just three episodes, Jennifer Garner left the set of Felicity in the hope of moving onto another project – and this meant that she had to leave behind Scott Foley. But while she left him in a professional sense, both Jennifer and Scott knew that they didn’t want to be apart on a personal level. They made the decision to take their relationship further, and they became the hottest new couple on the acting scene.

They went a step further in 2000 when they tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at their home, and everything seemed to be perfect. However, both of them knew that there was a divide in their marriage. Scott was still riding high on the success of Felicity, while Jennifer was still considered a struggling actress. During the early stage of their marriage, Jennifer was simply Scott’s wife. But that was all about to change.

In 2001, the Power Dynamic in Their Marriage Changed When Jennifer Was Offered Her Role in Alias

While working on Felicity, Jennifer didn’t just meet and fall in love with Scott Foley. She also met the hugely famous director J.J Abrams. And when he was looking for someone to take on the role of an undercover agent in a new ABC show called Alias, he knew that Jennifer could be a good shout. Thankfully, she smashed her audition and was given the chance to rise to stardom.

Alias proved to be incredibly successful, and Jennifer soon got to work on filming numerous seasons of the television show. But this meant that she was now busier than ever – and it caused a rift in her marriage. Up until that point, Scott had been the famous one. But Alias thrust Jennifer into the spotlight, causing the power dynamic to drastically change.

By 2003 Jennifer and Scott Had Separated, and She Quickly Moved on Romantically With Her Alias Co-star

This shift in their marriage caused irreparable damage to the connection Jennifer Garner and Scott Foley shared. And after just three years together it was announced that they had separated. Jennifer was still going strong as the main character in Alias, and it seemed as though this whole new chapter of her life was not conducive to the life she shared with Scott. The divorce papers were filed in May 2003, stating “irreconcilable differences.”

And while their divorce was finalized in March 2004, Jennifer didn’t wait until that happened to move on to her next romantic partner. In fact, she was linked to her Alias co-star Michael Vartan just three months after her separation, and this led many people to speculate about her failed marriage. Had there been more to their divorce than just a few differences?

Rumors Swirled That Jennifer Had Cheated on Her Ex-Husband, but She Denied Them All

As Jennifer Garner’s new fans learned all about her life, they were upset to learn that she had a failed marriage under her belt – and they wanted to know more. Especially as she had become so famous in such a short amount of time, and the rumors around her personal life suggested that she had cheated on Scott with Michael Vartan. In an effort to set the record straight, Jennifer spoke to the press.

Jennifer noted that the real reason her marriage ended was because of the world they lived in. She confessed that she and her ex-husband “really were the victims of Hollywood. Everything is speeded up here – it is a fast-lane life, and if something is not working, it is considered best to end it without much thought. If we lived where I was brought up, we would probably still be together.”

Scott Also Set the Record Straight, Noting That His Ex-Wife Had Not Cheated on Him

However, Jennifer Garner wasn’t the only one who wanted to speak up about the rumors that were swirling about her personal life. As these rumors also involved Scott, he also wanted to set the record straight and to stop people from making up stories about his life and his past.

While speaking to TV Guide, Scott confirmed that “Nobody else was involved. Jennifer became a huge celebrity. She became a huge star, and she deserved everything she got. There was no other relationship, there was no infidelity, nothing. People get divorced, you know? Through no one’s fault and everyone’s fault.” And while fans thought this was the end of Scott’s discussion, that was just the start.

Jennifer Garner Has Since Confirmed That She Regrets Getting Married So Young and So Early in Her Career

After her divorce from Scott Foley, Jennifer Garner had a short-lived fling with her Alias co-star before they broke up. And for a while, she focused intently on her career and building up her acting credits as a fully-fledged Hollywood star. This certainly worked in her favor, as Garner simply got bigger and better as the years went by. However, it seems as though this new sense of stardom also allowed her the chance to self-reflect.

In 2012, Jennifer spoke to The Sun about her past and noted that she regrets getting married in her 20s. She confessed that “Everyone reaches maturity at different times. I wish I’d known to wait for marriage until I was 30 or over. I did marry in my twenties and found divorce a crushing experience. I thought the divorce statistics would never apply to me. I was beyond heartbroken when they did.”

As Jennifer Continued to Talk About Her Ex-Husband in the Press, Scott Foley Stayed Silent for a While

In fact, Jennifer continued to talk about Scott in the press whenever the subject came up – and this has continued ever since their divorce. Just a year after her interview with The Sun, the actress spoke to Allure about the man she married and the fact that they weren’t as prepared for marriage as they could have been.

She confessed that “Oh, [Scott’s] a great guy. We were full-on grown-ups, but looking back I’m aware we did not know what hit us. We didn’t have a shot. He’s a really good guy, and we just imploded.” But while Jennifer continued to talk about Scott, the same couldn’t be said when it came to Scott talking about Jennifer. He stayed noticeably silent for more than a decade and has only just opened up.

In September 2021, Scott Foley Finally Opened up About His Ex-Wife During a Radio Interview

Although Scott retreated away from the discussion surrounding his extremely famous ex-wife, it seems as though he had a change of heart in September 2021. As the actor sat down with host Andy Cohen for his Sirius XM radio show, he decided to open up for the first time in years. After all, he knew he couldn’t ignore questions about Jennifer forever.

During this interview, Scott was asked some tough questions – and decided to fire back with some equally as tough answers. He spilled some home truths about his former marriage and his former wife, and some more information about what really went down between them. So, what did he say?

Scott Confirmed That His Marriage to Jennifer Garner Was a ”Short-Lived” Marriage

Scott Foley is perhaps now best known for his role in the TV show Scandal, and, to begin with, Andy Cohen wanted to ask the actor about his experience on the show and his experience of living in Hollywood. But before too long the discussion changed to his dating life, with the radio host asking Scott whether he found it easier to date when he was younger because of his fame and fortune.

More specifically, Andy asked whether Scott had dated anyone famous that those listening at home would know. Scott sheepishly replied, “Probably. I got married during Felicity. It was a short-lived marriage.” Looking to delve deeper into this relationship, Andy probed the actor for more information.

He Also Noted That He Is Not in Contact With His Ex-Wife but Is ”Cordial” Whenever He Sees Her

As the conversation progressed, Andy then asked Scott whether he was still in contact with Jennifer Garner and whether he would avoid her if they were to pass each other on the street. Scott was humble in his response, stating that “No, you have to say hello. You’re very civil. I mean, we do not keep in contact because she has her own family. I have mine. It wouldn’t be something that we would search out.”

However, Scott did confess to seeing Garner on occasion when he has been out and about in Los Angeles – but on these occasions, they were both with their respective families. He noted that “You know, everybody says ‘hi’ and you’re cordial and you move on. That’s life, right?”

Both Scott and Jennifer Moved on After Their Divorce, and Garner Ultimately Married Ben Affleck

Scot was right with one thing, and that’s that both he and his ex-wife did move on with their lives after their divorce. As she had become one of the most famous women in Hollywood during her marriage to Foley, Jennifer had no problem finding new men. She worked with some of the best in the business, and she later married one.

While still married to Scott, Jennifer had struck up a friendship with her Pearl Harbor and Daredevil co-star Ben Affleck. But it wasn’t until her divorce that she realized that friendship could be something more. So, Ben and Jen started dating in mid-2004 and by June 2005 they had tied the not to become husband and wife. And overnight they became the hottest couple in Hollywood.

Ben Affleck Struggled With Alcoholism in Their Marriage, and It Was Rumored That He Cheated on Jennifer

Although from the outside Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were the perfect couple – especially when they welcomed three children together – there were cracks beginning to show beneath the surface. It’s been widely speculated that Ben struggled with alcoholism while they were together, and rumors suggested that he got a little too close to his family’s nanny.

However, Ben and Jennifer have both denied that an affair ruined their marriage. Jennifer even went as far as to set the record straight when it came to this rumor and spoke to Vanity Fair about Ben’s supposed dalliance. During this interview, she said that cheating hadn’t caused their divorce and that “We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny.”

Jennifer’s Second Marriage Came to an End in 2015, but the Couple Still Co-Parent Together

All in all, the pressures of fame and their busy lives proved to be too much for Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, and they announced to the world that they were separating in 2015. They announced their intention to divorce immediately, although the proceedings took another three years to be finalized.

Despite the breakup, the couple remained amicable and vowed to maintain joint custody of their children so that they could co-parent as efficiently as possible. Even to this day – when Ben has rekindled a romance with his former flame, Jennifer Lopez – Ben and Jen still work hard to raise their children in a happy and healthy environment. But what about Scott?

Scott Also Moved on With His Life and Married Actress Marika Dominczyk in 2006

Jennifer wasn’t the only one who moved on after his divorce, as Scott also found a new love of his life. And this just so happened to come in the form of Polish actress Marika Dominczyk. The couple found each other a few years after Scott’s divorce, and they quickly fell in love – before Scott popped the question for the second time in his life.

Foley proposed in 2006, and by June 2007 they had made their way to Hawaii to marry in a private ceremony. After a couple of years of married bliss just those two, Scott and Marika then welcomed three wonderful children into their family. They now have a daughter and two sons to watch grow up in front of their eyes.

Scott’s Wife Was in the Room During His September 2021 Interview, but She’s Confident That He’s Moved On

Amazingly, Scott and Marika have been together ever since – and they have an extremely strong and loving relationship. This was proven in September 2021, when Marika was actually in the room when Andy Cohen asked the deep-dive questions about his first marriage. He even said on-air that, “We’re speaking about this with my current wife behind me, and she’s laughing. She’s really enjoying the squirming that I’m doing here.”

In fact, Marika seemed to be more comfortable than Scott. He cringed and laughed as he said, “[Garner and I] were together for a total of about five years. I say that, I downplay that, because my wife’s right behind me. … I think we were married for three. This is dangerous, dangerous territory, my friend.” However, it’s glad to see that they have both moved on.

In Recent Years, Ben Affleck Has Confessed That He Regrets Getting Divorced From Jennifer Garner

Although Ben Affleck and Jen are now friendly and on good co-parenting terms, Ben has spoken out about their divorce more in recent years. Most notably, he has confessed that he has lived with regret over their divorce since the papers were finalized. In February 2020, he noted that “The biggest regret of my life is this divorce. Shame is really toxic. There is no positive by-product of shame. It’s just stewing in a toxic, hideous feeling of low self-worth and self-loathing.”

He also confessed that his vices caused major shifts in their marriage, saying that “What happened was that I started drinking more and more when my marriage was falling apart. This was 2015, 2016. My drinking, of course, created more marital problems.” But he seems to have learned how to deal with this regret and his vices now, and has since moved on in terms of his romantic life.

However, Ben Is Currently Back Together With His Former Flame Jennifer Lopez

Yes, while Ben regrets the way his divorce came about, it seems as though it was this dark period in his life that’s gotten him to the happy place he is today. That’s because Ben is now back together with his former girlfriend Jennifer Lopez. The couple initially dated from 2002 until 2004, and they even got engaged.

However, the media attention surrounding “Bennifer” became all too much for them, and they broke up before Ben then fell in love again with Jennifer Garner. But what’s so amazing is that Ben Affleck doesn’t seem to be the only member of the Affleck/Garner family to have fallen back in love with a former flame. Since her divorce, Jennifer Garner has been going to and from another man.

In 2018, News Broke That Jennifer Garner Had Secretly Started Dating Businessman John Miller

Before Ben made his way back to J-Lo, Jennifer Garner moved onto a new relationship herself – but they kept it quiet for around six months before this news broke. It was only announced in October 2018 that Garner had been dating burger businessman John Miller for half a year, and fans couldn’t believe that they had managed to keep it under wraps.

John Miller is perhaps best known for being the CEO of CaliBurger and its parent company CaliGroup – and while he’s rich, he’s not a celebrity. This allowed the couple to work on their relationship behind the scenes, and a source told Us Weekly that “Jen brings out the best in John, and he is the happiest he has probably ever been. It’s a loving, healthy relationship.” However, it was also a difficult relationship, and certainly not plain sailing for either of them.

John Was Still Legally Married When They First Started Dating, and They Bonded Over Their Shared Experience of Divorce

In fact, their new relationship was complicated from the get-go. Although John was separated from his former wife, professional violinist Caroline Campbell, the divorce had not been finalized. So, he was technically still married when he first started dating Jennifer Garner. But that didn’t stop them from getting pretty serious pretty quickly.

The divorce was eventually finalized in November 2018, and it was John and Jen’s share experience of divorce that really brought them together. A source close to the couple confessed that “John and Jen are in similar places in their lives, and can relate to raising kids after a divorce. They’re on the same page and understand where things stand.”

Jennifer Loves the Fact That Her New Boyfriend Isn’t in the Public Eye, as This Allows Them To Keep a Low Profile

Although Jennifer Garner is a huge name in the celebrity world, it seems as though she wanted a change in terms of her public presence after her divorce. Thanks to her high-profile marriages with Scott Foley and Ben Affleck, she knew what it was like to go through the ups and downs of a relationship in front of the cameras. And she wanted something different for her next relationship.

Thankfully, Miller isn’t a recognizable face in the world of show business. He’s a private businessman who just happens to have money, and that was a huge plus for Jen. A source told Us Weekly that “They are very much in love… Jen admires John because he is just normal. Jennifer loves that he’s not in the entertainment industry and is just a simple guy.”

Her Co-Stars Also Approve of Her New Boyfriend, and Have Seen How Much They Love Each Other

But while Jennifer Garner likes to keep her relationship away from the press, it seems as though she has had no problems introducing John to her close-knit celebrity circle. And one man she wanted approval from was Victor Garber, who starred alongside the actress for four years in the TV show Alias. Over the years they grew to become extremely close friends, with Jen looking up to Garber as a father figure.

Garber even officiated her wedding to Ben Affleck, so his input on her new relationship was extremely important to her. Amazingly, Garber approves! He confessed that he thinks John is “adorable” and that “What’s wonderful is that they’re taking their time and they are just enjoying each other’s company. Her priority is her children, that’s it. She’s focused on that. She’s remarkable.”

According to Sources, Her New Boyfriend Helped To Improve the Friendship Between Jen and Ben Affleck

While Jen’s main priority in life is her children, it seems as though her relationship has also played a huge part in terms of their extended family dynamic. Not only do John and Jen’s kids get on like a house on fire, but John’s presence also seems to have helped rebuild burned bridges between Jen and her second husband Ben Affleck.

It’s been noted that “Jen having a boyfriend has been the best thing to happen to Ben and Jen in a long time. Ben has no problem with John. John’s daughters have had playdates with Jen and Ben’s kids. Ben totally trusts him.” And this trust was mutual, with Jen sticking by her ex-husband through all of his personal and legal battles over the years. However, just as things seemed to be looking up for Jen, they all came crumbling down again.

In August 2020 Jennifer Garner and John Miller Broke Up, and They Were Ultimately Plagued With Rumors

Although John and Jen seemed to be going strong, an update on their relationship hit the newsstands in August 2020. Us Weekly broke the news that the couple had called it quits, with a source stating that “He was ready for marriage and she just couldn’t commit. They parted on very amicable terms.”

But of course, fans wanted to know more – especially as Jennifer had been spotted getting cozy on the beach with fellow actor Bradley Cooper just a few days before the news broke. Rumors suggested that Jen had moved on with the Hollywood heartthrob, but it soon came to light that they were simply friends. And Jen and John didn’t stay apart for too long, anyway…

By the Start of 2021, Jen and John Got Back Together and Have Been Going Steady Ever Since

Despite the fact that they went their separate ways for a few months, it seems as though Jen and John couldn’t stay away for too long. By May 2021 rumors began to suggest that they had gotten back together, and sources close to the couple also seemed to confirm this exciting development.

The source revealed that “Jen and John are back on” and fans around the world rejoiced. While John isn’t as famous as her previous partners, he seems to have a positive impact on the actress. Fans have seen a change in her over the past few years, and while this means that she has become more private, this only seems to be improving her quality of life.

Sources Suggest That Jen and John Have Introduced Their Kids and Are Trying To Make It Work as a Blended Family

Since their reconciliation in early 2021, Jen and John seem to have worked out their differences and have been going steady ever since. And part of this process has been making decisions regarding their kids and their families. As both Jen and John have their own kids, they tried to separate their lives for a while – but soon realized that blending them together made the most sense.

A source suggested that the couple “plan to incorporate their kids” more into their dynamic as a whole so that they can become a family rather than just a couple who both have kids. And if all goes well, this should make them the perfect blended family that can get through anything. Jennifer deserves it, after all.

Ben Affleck Appears To Give His Approval to Jennifer and John’s Rekindled Relationship

In light of Jennifer and John’s relationship starting again, news began to circulate about how ex-husband Ben felt about all of this. If John was in and out of Jennifer’s life, then that could be confusing for their children. But it soon became clear that ben gave his approval to Jennifer and John’s reignited romance.

Sources close to the actor reported that John had “passed [Ben’s] tests with flying colors” when it came to measuring whether he was suitable for the role of step-dad. Now that they had decided to give it another go, there was the question of where it would lead. Would we perhaps hear the ringing of wedding bells in the not-too-distant future?

Jennifer and John Appear To Be Inseparable As They Arrive at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport

In March 2022, Jennifer and John did something that they rarely do together – they went out together in New York City around the time that Jennifer was traveling for the premiere of her Netflix movie The Adam Project. The couple were pictured at the John F. Kennedy International Airport, presumably heading back to their homes on the West Coast.

That hinted at the fact that John was by Jennifer’s side while she had to travel for work, suggesting that the pair had become seriously close. According to people who saw them there at the time, the couple didn’t engage in any public displays of affection, but they stayed very close to each other’s side and went everywhere together.

Jennifer and John Are Pictured Returning Home From a Workout Class in Los Angeles in August 2022

a few months later in august 2022, Jennifer and John were seen together once more as they walked around in the streets of Los Angeles. Judging by the paparazzi photos that were taken at the time, Jennifer and John were coming back from a workout class in the neighborhood, and they seemed very much in love.

The couple was all smiles as they attempted to drive off without being spotted by anyone, with Jennifer wearing an all-black workout outfit and John wearing jeans and a grey sweatshirt. Even though they hadn’t put out any public statement, it appeared as though everything was going well in their rekindled relationship.

Jennifer Is Seen Hanging Out With John and His Son Samuel in October 2022

The couple had been very careful about not being seen out together, but they appeared to slip up in October 2022. Jennifer and John, who were usually reclusive, were seen sharing a sweet kiss on a sunny Saturday morning in Los Angeles, seemingly after they had enjoyed a quick coffee date together.

They were both dressed down, presumably trying to be as low-key as possible, and later in the day they were spotted together still but this time with the addition of one of John’s sons. Samuel Miller was seen out with the couple, proving that they really were enjoying life as one big happy family.

There Is Evidence That Jennifer and John Might Be Planning To Tie the Knot in 2023

News started circulating at the end of 2022 that wedding bells were on the horizon for Jennifer and John. Apparently, however, John had to win over the affections of ex-husband Ben for popping the question. A source explained that “John has run the gauntlet to show he’s both husband material and stepdad material.”

As of yet, the public is yet to hear about any news of an official engagement. That being said, the actress has been pictured wearing a sparkly diamond ring on her engagement finger, leading many to believe that John has already gotten down and one knee with Jennifer accepting. But for the time being, it seems, they’re not ready to share their news with the world.

For Jennifer’s 50th Birthday Bash John Was Right There by Her Side, and He Brought His Kids Along, Too

Only time would come to tell as to how Jennifer and John were getting on in their rekindled relationship. But when Jennifer turned 50th birthday on April 17th, the public got an answer. John was photographed right there by Jennifer’s side, celebrating the birthday milestone with the Elektra actress.

It wasn’t just the couple that celebrated, but all of their friends and family. Jennifer, John, and all of their kids gathered together for a family party, with an insider telling Us Weekly that the occasion was a “casual and easy” one. Clearly, Jennifer and John had ironed out their previous issues and were happily merging their families.

Ben and J.Lo Throw a Star-Studded Christmas Party at Home, but Jennifer and John Are Nowhere To Be Seen

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez chose to celebrate Christmas in 2022 by throwing a big festive bash at their sprawling Los Angeles home. It was a star-studded affair, allegedly with celebrities like Doja Cat, Kim Kardashian, Billie Eilish, and Eric André turning up to share in karaoke fun. The only thing is, Jennifer and John apparently weren’t invited to the party.

Either that or they turned down the invitation. Many were expecting to see the couple join newlyweds Ben and J.Lo, as everything seemed to be good between the former married couple. But it would seem that their blended family doesn’t extend to exes in that way. In 2022, Ben, J.Lo, Jennifer, and John did not celebrate Christmas together.
