Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck got married in Las Vegas

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were wed Saturday in a late-night Las Vegas drive-through chapel 

"Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient," wrote Lopez in a message signed Jennifer Lynn Affleck.

The couple met in 2001 on the set of their movie Gigli while Lopez was still married to her second husband Cris Judd.  

Following their June 2002 separation, “Bennifer” was born, with Affleck making an appearance in Lopez’s unforgettable music video for “Jenny from the Block.”  

“Last night we flew to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world,” Lopez shared. 

By November, Affleck had proposed, but the couple ultimately decided to cancel their September 2003 wedding due to “excessive media attention,” breaking up officially by January of the following year.  

Although both went on to marry and divorce other people, the pair reconnected in early 2021, buying a $50 million mansion together in March and getting engaged for a second time in April of this year. 

Affleck married Jennifer Garner in 2005, with whom he shares three children. They divorced in 2018.
