Saturday saw the marriage of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck in Las Vegas, 20 years after they originally became engaged. In front of their 5 respective children, the private wedding ceremony took place at the Little White Wedding chapel at midnight. Through her official newsletter “On the JLo,” Lopez made the announcement and provided numerous exclusive images from their special day. In Clark County, Nevada, a marriage licence was submitted with Lopez’s new married name, Jennifer Affleck.
“We succeeded. Love is lovely. Love is nice. Love, it turns out, is a patient thing. 20 years of perseverance, “On her website, she wrote. They called off their initial engagement 17 years prior to the wedding.
The couple boldly expressed their newfound love on social media after news of their reconciliation broke last year, sending fans into a frenzy. In Nevada’s Clark County Clerk’s Office, which maintains records for Las Vegas, it is noted that Jennifer Lopez will alter her name to Jennifer Affleck.
She claimed in a post on her OntheJLo website that the couple had flown to Las Vegas on Saturday and stood in line with four other couples for a marriage licence.
The couple first connected in 2002 while working on the film Gigli. They became engaged in 2003 but called it quits the following year, blaming “excessive media attention.” Fans have subsequently repurposed the couple’s prior portmanteau nickname Bennifer as a result of their many online postings of romantic vacations and family time after getting back together.
Lopez had many engagements throughout their separation, and she was also married to musician Marc Anthony from 2004 to 2014. Together, they are parents to two kids. She will be married for the fourth time. Affleck and Jennifer Garner, an actor, were wed from 2005 to 2018 and have three children together.
