The third time was not the charm, but the fourth might be the one. After they reunited and gave a chance to love a second time, it has been revealed that Jennifer Lopez wants to marry Ben Affleck because she still has hope of a happy ending.
Now that they have been together for some months now there is a question that most fans have started asking: Will Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez get married? After all, before they called it quits in 2004 they looked really happy together. Could this mean that they have grown up and realized their happiness was within each other?
The answer to this question came thanks to Jennifer Lopez who has been promoting her film 'Marry Me' alongside Owen Wilson. In the movie, she is dumped but abruptly and due to pressure she decides to marry a total stranger.
During a special appearance at the Today show, J.Lo was asked if she would like to marry again and her reply was the best she could give to make the fans swoon from excitement. “Yeah, I guess. You know me, I’m a romantic, I always have been, a few times,” she told host Hoda Kotb. “I still believe in happily ever after, for sure, 100%.”
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck dated from 2001 to 2004. At the time they were engaged and the actor called it off just a couple of days before the wedding. Apparently, he felt pressured to do so because of the scrutiny and the media.
Then both continued with their life. Jennifer married Marc Anthony, had two kids, divorced for the third time, and then dated Alex Rodriguez engaged again but called it off after having suspicions he was cheating. On the other hand, Ben Affleck married Jennifer Garner, became the parents of three kids, and then divorced. Before dating Lopez again he was dating Ana de Armas.
Jen married her first husband, actor Ojani Noa, in 1997, splitting by 1998, and moved on to choreographer Cris Judd, to whom she was married from 2001-2003.
Earlier this year and according to US Weekly, when they were together for just a couple of months the couple was seriously talking about marriage because they “are both madly in love and don’t want to let one another go this time.” The insider also noted that Ben views J-Lo as the “one that got away” and is “determined to make sure that doesn’t happen this time.”
Then, according to HollywoodLife, marriage is what Jen wanted. “Jen has been prepared for a wedding for quite a while because that was what was going to happen with Alex and now that her relationship with Ben is so hot and heavy, she would 1,000 percent say yes if Ben were to pop the question to her again,” the insider told the publication at the time.
