Ben Affleck and J.Lo are getting serious! The question is: how serious? While Bennifer hasn’t made any moves to tie the knot just yet, fans are wondering if the superstar couple is getting close to making a huge commitment and whether they’ll get married for real this time.
Things Are Getting Serious
Things are moving fast for Ben and J.Lo. They are Instagram official! The couple cuddled up on a luxury yacht for Jennifer’s 52nd birthday party and the buzz doesn’t stop there. While paparazzi were snapping sexy pics of the pair, Ben paid homage to a classic Bennifer moment. The cheeky pic was captured in full glory by TMZ, Ben’s hand giving a big squeeze to J.Lo’s behind.
The picture was an obvious reference to Jennifer Lopez’s “Jenny From the Block” music video, which starred a much-younger Ben grabbing his hottie’s butt. The famous scene was filled in classic 2000s music-video fashion – bright lights and blurry camera – and it gave Bennifer fans something to write home about: Ben bent over Jennifer on a luxury yacht, squeezing J.Lo’s bum.
Though the relationship ultimately fell apart, Bennifer has since reunited and it’s all anyone can talk about. With their move toward true commitment (going Instagram official, of course!), fans are wondering if there could be a shiny rock on J.Lo’s finger again soon. Will Ben Affleck and J.Lo finally get married?
To find out how the future might play out, we’ll have to travel back to a time when boy bands and wasabi peas were still popular. No, we’re not here to talk about the infamous “Brad and Jen.” We’re going back to 2002 when things were simpler, and Bennifer was stronger than ever.
Bennifer Goes Back a Long Way
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez started out as a quick fling in mid-2002 after meeting on the set of Gigli in 2001. Things got hot and heavy for a while, with media attention spreading like wildfire. Before long, Bennifer was born, and so was their love.
By November 2002, Ben Affleck and J.Lo were ready to exchange vows. While young and engaged, fans around the world thought Bennifer was truly unbreakable. A trip to the altar never happened, though. Their September 13, 2003 wedding was canceled with four days notice.
Ben and Jennifer never ended up getting married. In early 2004, the couple split. The pair claimed media scrutiny was a major cause of the breakup. But fans never lost hope.
After she got over her “first real heartbreak,” Jennifer Lopez moved on to many (many!) other men. The singer was married to Marc Anthony from 2004 to 2011, but the relationship ultimately failed. They finalized their divorce in June 2014. Jennifer got primary custody of the two children they shared and moved on with her former backup dancer Casper Smart. They were “more than colleagues” from 2011 to 2016 but finally called it quits when their rhythms weren’t adding up.
J.Lo’s fans were sure she was finally going to get a happy ending when she met Alex Rodriguez. From February 2017 to early 2021, the couple was hitting home runs: Jennifer likes Alex’s kids and vice versa. In March 2019, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez got engaged. But like her former flames before that, they never got married.
Alex Rodriguez struck out in 2021, and the couple announced the finality of their split in April 2021. While all seemed lost, a familiar face quickly slipped back into J.Lo’s life. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez have gotten serious quickly!
While it all seemed to be rumors at first, Bennifer came back in full swing and it seems they haven’t let their history go. From romantic vacations to public PDA, both Ben and Jennifer seem ready to commit. But still, the question remains: How ready are they?
Will Ben Affleck And Jennifer Lopez Get Married?
The two have already started shacking up together and Ben has been helping Jennifer find her dream home. While it doesn’t scream engagement, it means the couple is getting close to sealing the deal. So will they?
Though we’d love to see Ben and Jen finally tie the knot, we don’t believe they’re going to get married anytime soon. Together they are worth over half a billion dollars. And they have five children between the two of them. Resolving financial and custody agreements could be a nightmare. Can you say “iron-clad prenup”?
We wouldn’t rule out a marriage down the line. The couple has a lot in common. Besides for teenage kids and mega-stardom they have a history that can’t be ignored. But we don’t think they’re running to Vegas anytime soon.
