Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor might be a Hollywood couple, but that doesn’t mean that their relationship is any different from other romances. The two comedic actors have created a beloved following of fans and longtime admirers, having worked together on a number of projects.
Over the years, many audiences who love their movies and TV projects have grown more interested in their romance from its inception to their current relationship status. Let’s take a look back at Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor’s relationship and marriage, and all of its ups and downs, with this comprehensive timeline.
Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor met on the set of a 1999 unaired pilot called Heat Vision and Jack. Although the show, which also starred Jack Black and Owen Wilson, was never picked up by a network, it was the setting where Christine Taylor and Ben Stiller were formally introduced.
Not long after getting together, Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor totally took their romance to the next level. The two wed on May 13, 2000 and continued a personal and professional relationship. Besides collaborating together on their many projects, the couple also made their family the number priority in their lives.
In 2002, Christine Taylor and Ben Stiller welcomed their first child — daughter Ella Olivia Stiller. Three years later, the trio became a family of four with the addition of Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor’s second child, son Quinlin Dempsey Stiller. The entire family has been spotted out and about on a few occasions, including red carpet film premieres and family gatherings.
Without the public’s knowledge, Ben Stiller underwent a fight for his life in sometime between 2015 and 2016. The Night At The Museum revealed that he’d battled prostate cancer. Sadly, months after Ben Stiller’s health revelation, he and his family were hit with yet another blow.
Despite appearances that they had one of the strongest marriages in Hollywood, Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor made the shocking decision to separate in May 2017 after 18 years together.
Although Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor’s decision to end their nearly 20-year marriage seemed final, the couple maintained a very close relationship.

Naturally, this led to renewed interest in the status of Christine Taylor and Ben Stiller’s marriage and whether or not the couple would actually go through with any potential plans to divorce.
On September 22 of that year, Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor attended the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards together and posed with one another on the red carpet. The twosome were all smiles for the cameras, and they looked quite happy. Something tells us there are more chapters to come for these two.
