Will J.Lo and Ben Affleck get married in 2022?
When word got out that J.Lo and Ben Affleck may have rekindled their love! It was just a matter of time before we knew whether there was really something in the rumors or it was just another load of hot air. Let’s face it, they once dated between 2002 and 2003 before officially calling it quits and going their separate ways. They even dated other people, got married, and had kids. Surely, chances of rekindling their love were as minimal as you and I may think. But, as fate would have it, the pair seems to have managed to crawl into each other’s hearts once more. The question lingering over our minds now is, Will J.Lo and Ben Affleck get married in 2022?
We have prepared the latest gossip for you concerning the relationship between J.Lo and Ben Affleck, or as they are widely referred to on the internet, Bennifer 2.0. Keep it here as we reveal whether this time, the couple will go all the way down the aisle.
Before we answer the question of whether Bennifer will get married in 2022, let’s take a trip down memory lane to where it all started.
It all started in 2001 when J.Lo and Ben Affleck were filming the movie Gigli. We hate to break it to you, but the movie never really did well. Back to the topic, during that time J-LO was married to Cris Judd. Whom she had met on the set of her music video “Love don’t cost a thing.”
It would later be revealed that during this time, J-Lo and Judd were having marital issues, and she was on the verge of filing for a divorce. Ben Affleck would later claim his innocence after people thought that he was the cause of the couple splitting up. In an interview with Vanity Fair in March 2003. Affleck said, “When I met her we became really, really, really good friends… because she was married, there was no thought of a romantic relationship. So that created the opportunity to get to know each other without any of the falseness that goes with courtship.”
In 2002, J-Lo formally filed for divorce from Judd. She cited irreconcilable differences as the main reason for ending the marriage. One man may have been so happy about these developments, and it’s none other than Ben Affleck.
In the same interview with Vanity Fair, Affleck was asked about the divorce. And he said, “It changed when she told me she was getting separated. At that point, it became a possibility; doors were opened.”
After J-Lo’s divorce with Judd, she started dating Affleck shortly after, and by the end of 2002, they were engaged. Affleck went all the way out on his proposal to J-Lo. As he popped the big question with a $2.5-million-worth, 6.1-carat pink diamond by Harry Winston. The excitement around the couple waned off for the better part of 2003 until September, just days before their wedding. When they announced that they had decided to postpone it, citing excessive media attention. In 2004, Bennifer fans were shocked when the couple called off their engagement. And ended their relationship, after months of on-again-off-again rumors about the relationship and the wedding.
After their split, they both seemingly moved on quickly as J-Lo married fellow singer Marc Anthony in June 2004 while Affleck married Jennifer Garner in June 2005. J-Lo’s marriage to Anthony ended in 2014 while Affleck’s to Garner ended in 2018. J-Lo would later start dating former New York Yankees legend, Alex Rodriguez, in 2017 before announcing their engagement in March 2019. The couple was set to officially wed in Italy in June 2020 but due to the pandemic, they had to put their wedding plans on hold. After months of speculation, the couple officially announced that they had parted ways in April 2021. On his side, Affleck began dating actress Ana de Armas in 2020 while filming Deep Water. The romance was short-lived as the couple called it quits in January 2021.
This is where you should start getting excited if you were a fan of the couple back in 2002. In April 2021, rumors of the pair rekindling their love started swirling. According to various media outlets, Affleck was reportedly seen being picked up in a white Escalade SUV that allegedly belonged to J-Lo, and was then taken to her residence. However, anonymous sources said that the two were just friends who were just catching up.
In May 2021, the rumors got more intense after the Daily Mail published photos of the pair in a car together in Montana, where it’s rumored that Affleck owns a home. News also got out that they spent about a week in Yellowstone Club in Montana. Another media outlet reported that Affleck and J-Lo were in contact before her breakup with Rodriguez, but the conversations just remained friendly, and they did not meet until her relationship with Rodriguez ended.
Affleck and J-Lo would later be spotted together on several other occasions. Within the same month, they were seen together in J-Lo’s new Miami home. They were also spotted going to a gym together. Eagle-eyed fans also claimed that Affleck had started re-wearing a watch that he often sported when he and Lopez previously dated.
All the doubts we may have been having about Bennifer getting back together ended when the pair was spotted kissing. Leaning in close, and talking with each other at a dinner table at Nobu in Malibu in June 2021. They were later photographed with their arms wrapped around each other while walking in the Hamptons. In July, J-Lo made their rekindled relationship official in an Instagram post. Since then, the couple has been nothing but praises for each other. What many of us are dying to know is, will Affleck and Lopez get married in 2022?
According to US Weekly, the couple already has a clear idea of what their dream wedding will look like. And it’s only a matter of time before they walk down the aisle. A close source to the two told US Weekly, “Both Ben and Jen want their wedding to be an elaborate statement of their love story for their friends and family. They really want everyone to have a good time. They want it to be intimate, but immaculate.”
Both J.Lo and Ben Affleck have also spoken about the possibility of a wedding in their recent interviews. In an interview with Today Show’s Hoda Kotb, J-Lo was asked if she was open to walking down the aisle again. She answered, “I don’t know. Yeah, I guess. You know me, I’m a romantic. I always have been…I still believe in happily ever after.” Affleck was also asked about the wedding while in an interview with the Wallstreet Journal. He gave a very coy answer, “Life is difficult, and we are always failing and hopefully learning from those failures. The one thing you really need to avail yourself of the opportunities provided by that growth is a second chance. I’ve definitely tried to take advantage of that.”
Now that everyone that loves Bennifer is excited at their rekindled romance. Everything they do may be taken to mean that they are planning a wedding.
For example, Affleck was recently seen at a jewelry store and everyone thought that he was out buying an engagement ring for J-Lo.
However, it turned out that he was just making a stop at the jewelry shop as part of a scavenger hunt with his kids.
One reason why we strongly believe that the pair may be planning a wedding is J-Lo’s recent activities. According to E! News, Lopez is reported to be keen on moving from Miami to Los Angeles, where Affleck lives. She is also said to be considering schools there for her twins to attend during the fall.
Close sources have also revealed that Affleck and J-Lo are actively discussing their wedding. It is said that they are looking forward to having some time, and want a simple but perfect wedding. The sources said that the couple is so much in love and they are willing to stay together for the rest of their lives.
According to these sources, the couple is so much in love that it doesn’t even cross their minds that it might not work out for the long term.
During the 2021 American Music Awards, J-Lo performed her single On My Way while clad in a bridal gown. She began her performance in a black gown before quickly transitioning into the tulle-number complete with a veil which she later tossed into the audience.
In September, she still wore another bridal dress for her red-carpet debut appearance after rekindling her love with Affleck at the Venice Film Festival. Well, we don’t want to conclude on J-Lo’s choice of bridal dresses in her performance and red-carpet appearance, but could this also be a symbolic representation of her willingness to wed the love of her life in 2022?
J-Lo and Ben Affleck’s rekindled love seems to be stronger than ever. The gushing over each other and the sweet compliments are enough proof that the couple is over the moon. So, are these reasons enough to conclude that the power couple will walk down the aisle in 2022? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
