Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s romance, famously known as “Bennifer,” has captivated the public for over twenty years. In the early 2000s, their journey from friendship to romance, engagement, and eventual breakup was closely followed by fans. Despite spending nearly two decades apart, during which they focused on their careers and built their own families, Ben and Jennifer reunited, reviving one of Hollywood’s most beloved love stories. Since rekindling their relationship, the couple has experienced continuous happiness.

Recently, rumors of issues in Ben and Jennifer’s marriage have spread quickly online, with some suggesting that a divorce might be imminent. Despite this, there is still hope that their relationship will continue to flourish. Let’s revisit the key moments in Bennifer’s journey, highlighting the events that have defined their relationship and kept fans hopeful for their happy ending.

They first met in 2002 while filming the movie “Gigli.” At the time, Jennifer was married to her second husband, Cris Judd. However, she experienced love at first sight upon meeting Ben. Shortly after their initial encounter, Jennifer filed for divorce from Cris, and she and Ben started dating. They quickly became one of Hollywood’s most talked-about couples, giving rise to the “Bennifer” phenomenon.

A few months into their relationship, Ben proposed to Jennifer with a custom 6.1-carat pink diamond ring from Harry Winston. The moment was surreal for Lopez, who couldn’t stop raving about how beautiful the proposal was. In an interview with Diane Sawyer that year, she described it as “traditional but also done in a very spectacular way, as of course Ben would do it.” Jennifer also praised Ben, calling him brilliantly smart, loving, charming, and affectionate.

By 2003, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were the talk of the town, constantly featured in tabloids and relentlessly pursued by paparazzi. Jennifer even satirized the intense media scrutiny in her “Jenny From the Block” music video, which showed paparazzi capturing moments of the couple doing everything from making out on a yacht and hotel balcony to pumping gas. Despite the playful take, Jennifer admitted that the constant media attention was overwhelming.

They planned to get married on September 14, 2003, but just four days before, they announced they were postponing the wedding. In a joint statement, they explained that they made this decision due to the overwhelming media attention surrounding their impending marriage. Four months after postponing their wedding, Ben and Jennifer ended their engagement, largely due to the intense media scrutiny they faced.

Despite their efforts to move on, Jennifer described the split as the most devastating heartbreak of her life, saying it felt like she was going to die. After her breakup with Ben, Jennifer found love with Marc Anthony. They married on June 5, 2004, and had a decade-long marriage before divorcing in 2014, during which they welcomed twins, Max and Emme. Meanwhile, Ben began dating Jennifer Garner in 2004, and they married on June 29, 2005. The couple had three children together: daughters Violet Anne and Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, and son Samuel Garner. Despite many happy moments, Ben and Garner separated in 2015 and finalized their divorce in 2018.

2021, 17 years after ending their relationship, Ben and Jennifer reignited dating rumors. They were often seen together in Los Angeles, California, USA though insiders claimed they were just friends. The speculation intensified when they were spotted on a trip to Montana. After several months of public displays of affection and frequent outings, Ben and Jennifer officially confirmed their relationship. In a July 2021 post celebrating her 52nd birthday, Jennifer shared a series of photos, ending with a picture of the couple kissing, with Ben’s arm wrapped around her in a loving embrace.

In April 2022, they were engaged again, and in July, they finally tied the knot! After their wedding, Ben and Jennifer embarked on a romantic trip to Italy. In the months after Ben and Jennifer’s romantic trip to Italy, the couple continuously delighted fans. Jennifer adopted her husband’s last name, they openly expressed affection on social media, got matching tattoos, appeared together at numerous red carpet events, and collaborated on a Dunkin’ Donuts Super Bowl commercial. Their love story evoked memories of their early 2000s relationship, and everything appeared to be going smoothly for the couple, much to the joy of their fans.

Rumors suggesting that Ben and Jennifer were on the brink of divorce began circulating in May 2024. Fans speculated about trouble in their relationship after the last sighting of them together, having lunch on March 30, 2024. Adding to the speculation, reports claimed that Ben had moved out of their $60 million mansion, indicating difficulties in their marriage.

However, on May 16, fans breathed a sigh of relief when Ben and Jennifer were photographed together for the first time in 47 days, attending an event in Los Angeles to support their children. In the pictures, both actors were wearing their wedding rings, affirming that they were still together. As rumors about their marriage persist in the headlines, Jennifer and Ben’s fans remain hopeful for more positive updates.
