Singer Jennifer Lopez and actor Ben Affleck’s romance is something that people only see in the movies. The two were once engaged for 2 years between 2002-2004. Just days before their wedding in 2004, which the two already postponed due to excessive media coverage, they decided to split for good.
Now, roughly 17 years later, fate brought the two back together as they rekindled their romance in 2021, and went on to get married in July 2022. The singer recently revealed that she experienced “a little PTSD” before marrying the actor as the two fell apart the first time. Ben Affleck proposed to the singer in April 2022 when she was in a bathtub.
Jennifer Lopez had second thoughts about their marriage
Singer Jennifer Lopez appeared on Thursday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! and revealed that she experienced “a little PTSD” before marrying actor Ben Affleck, as their relationship hit a rough patch back in 2004. She said,
“We were so happy and, of course, it was happening, but the wedding was so stressful. One day, Ben just said, ‘F**k it, let’s just go to Vegas and get married tonight.’ He said, ‘Go to rehearsal. When you get back here, I’ll have everything set up.'”
The two decided to fly to Las Vegas in July 2022 and get married secretly. As per the singer, the whole wedding was planned out by the actor.
The couple got engaged in April 2022
After roughly 18 years, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez got engaged again in April 2022. The singer told Jimmy Kimmel,
“He had to ask me again. I didn’t have that [ring] anymore.”
The singer said that she was in a bathtub when the actor proposed to her. Affleck proposed to her with a green diamond ring. Three months after the two got engaged, they decided to get married in Las Vegas. They didn’t stop there as they got married again in August 2022 in Georgia, in presence of their family and friends.
Ben Affleck talked about his marriage with Jennifer Lopez
In November 2022, Affleck talked about his marriage with Lopez. He explained that the singer is “exactly the person” he remembers “from 20 years ago.” He further added,
“Maybe she sees all the changes she’s made, whereas when I see her, mostly I just see someone who has retained, against the odds, the thing about her that always made her the most incredible to me.”
To many, it may look like a fairytale, but some insiders have claimed that they are already having minor issues in their relationship. The actor’s smoking habit has annoyed the singer a lot and to retaliate, she got rid of his valuable motorcycle collection.
