Long-running J Lo-Affleck romance affirmed
LAS VEGAS - Superstar celebrity couple Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were married on Saturday, according to a Clark County, Nevada, marriage license.
The couple, who dated and became engaged in the early 2000s before breaking up and spending 17 years apart, rekindled their relationship last year.
Lopez's fan newsletter, the J Lo, on Sunday reported, "We did it." The couple flew to Vegas and arrived at the chapel just before midnight to wait in line with four other couples, according to the account.
"Behind us two men held hands and held each other. In front of us, a young couple who made the three hour drive from Victorville on their daughter’s second birthday — all of us wanting the same thing — for the world to recognize us as partners and to declare our love to the world through the ancient and nearly universal symbol of marriage."
The couple received a marriage license in Clark County, Nevada, on July 16, court records show. The license was issued to Benjamin Geza Affleck and Jennifer Lopez.
"It was the best possible wedding we could have imagined," the pair said. "One we dreamed of long ago and one made real."
