In 2017, Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor separated after 18 years together and 17 years of marriage. They never filed for divorce. And two years later, rumor had it that these two crazy kids were back together as they were seen around town together both with and without their kids, 19-year-old Ella Olivia, and 16-year-old Quinlin Dempsey. Well, now these two are officially back together and Ben has confirmed it. Tsk! Of course, the nepotism baby gets the good Hollywood divorce that never gets filed and then circles back into a happy marriage.
Who knew that when Ben Stiller and his wife of 17 years Christine Taylor separated in 2017, we might have been justified in giving the news one of Christine’s signature “Sure, Jan”s. After all, one doesn’t throw out nearly 20 years of experience figuring out exactly which buttons to push during a fight lightly. So it’s maybe not so surprising that Ben and Christine were each others date at last night’s Emmy Awards. And according to People, they have recently been doing other things together as well, both with and without their kids, daughter Ella Olivia, 17, and son Quinlin Dempsey, 14. Why, it’s almost as if there are two adult people in Hollywood walking around just being a normal ass family. The fuck?
I’m not sure how one could shred their marriage when your wife is one of the greatest memes of all time. But how are we to know what secrets and passions lie in the hearts of men?
Ben Stiller and his wife of 17 years, Christine Taylor, have separated. 17 years of marriage in Hollywood is the equivalent of one of those old couples who met when they were ten, can both recall when you used to get your tonsils out on the kitchen table, and have been married for 50+ years in the real world. They announced their split in a joint statement to E! News.
