Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are already married. As the US portal TMZ published exclusively this Sunday, the Hollywood couple got engaged in an intimate ceremony in Las Vegas and documents corroborate this. The media outlet has had access to court records that allegedly show that both obtained a marriage license in Clark County, Nevada, on July 16 with the names of both: Benjamin Géza Aflleck and Jennifer Lynn Lopez. In addition, they have a source from inside the couple’s circle who has confirmed that indeed they are already husband and wife.

In this way they fulfill a pending agreement that they have had for 20 years, as it should be remembered that they got engaged at the end of 2002 in their first relationship together. However, the breakup would come in 2004 without a wedding in between, and after marrying separately and having children with other couples, they resumed their love story last year and are now totally inseparable.

Jennifer Affleck is real

In fact, in recent months we have seen many details that show that they longed for a life together, as they have looked for a home together, accompanied on more than one occasion by their children. They finally managed to establish their love nest in a luxurious and exclusive property in Beverly Hills for which they have supposedly paid 60 million dollars and where one of Jennifer Lopez’s cars and several trucks were seen last month for removals. The same ones that had already been spotted in the houses that both Ben and her have been living in so far in Los Angeles.

Does this mean J-Lo becomes J-Aff?

A legendary couple that just pressed pause

Ben Affleck had a relationship with Gwyneth Paltrow at the end of the 1990s that, although attracting many glances, was nothing compared to what he would experience in 2002 with Jennifer López. He worked with the singer on several projects and they became known as ‘Bennifer’, a couple that was a hit wherever they went and that achieved a legion of faithful followers that continues to this day. Their relationship was so idyllic that they got engaged and set their wedding for September 14, 2003, but due to the harassment of the paparazzi they postponed it a few days before and in January of the following year the breakup would come.

That year, in 2004, Affleck began a relationship with Jennifer Garner and in 2005 they married. They have since had three children together, but in June 2015 they announced their separation, which has not prevented them from maintaining an excellent relationship and the actress helping him in his worst moments with his addictions.

For her part, Jennifer López has now experienced her fourth marriage. The artist married for the first time in 1997 with the Cuban Ojani Noa, whom she would end up suing and from whom she divorced a year later. In 2006 she claimed in a book that Noa raped her and a year later she was rewarded with more than half a million dollars.

JLo would remarry in September 2001 with dancer Cris Judd, but again the marriage only lasted a year. It was then that she met Ben Affleck, but at that time her story did not take shape as it did with Marc Anthony, with whom she walked down the aisle in 2004. Together they were the parents of two children and in 2011 they announced their divorce.
