Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez tie the knot
Laura Lee - July 31, 2022

In rather very surprising news, there were rumors of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez getting back together after they broke up earlier but Hollywood fans were starstruck when the couple announced that they were getting married. Early in the 2000s, the pair started dating and were engaged. After splitting up and spending 17 years apart, they renewed their romance last year. “We did it”, Lopez’s fanzine J-Lo declared on Sunday. According to the tale, the couple took a flight to Vegas and arrived at the chapel shortly before midnight to stand in line with four other couples.

On the set of “Gigli” in 2002, Lopez and Affleck got to know one another. Later that year, they started dating, and by November 2002, “Bennifer,” as they were dubbed in Hollywood, had become engaged. But Lopez revealed the couple had broken up in 2004. Throughout their separation of almost two decades, the couple continued to date and marry other famous people. In 2004, Lopez wed the musician Marc Anthony. In 2005, Affleck wed Jennifer Garner, an actress. Affleck dated actor Ana de Armas while Lopez became engaged to former New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez in 2019. Both couples eventually divorced. In 2021, both of those partnerships came to an end.

On April 8, Lopez revealed that she and Affleck had renewed their engagement. The couple said in the note on Sunday that “love is a lovely thing, perhaps the best of everything – and worth waiting for.” According to court records, Lopez, 52, and Affleck, 49, got married on July 16 in Clark County, Nevada. The license was given to Jennifer Lopez, who was also named Jennifer Affleck, and Benjamin Geza Affleck. Lopez referred to herself as “Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck” in her email announcing the union.
