Us Weekly: Will Jennifer Lopez & Ben Affleck ‘tie the knot’ in early 2022?

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck look head over heels in love during vacation in Capri, Italy

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have enjoyed a more subdued Autumnal Bennifer Romance. The Summer of Bennifer was hot and we had non-stop gossip, yacht photos, vacation photos, pap strolls and more. The autumn brought separate work schedules and stolen moments together on weekends. Still, I believe in Bennifer. I still hope Ben doesn’t ruin this for us! Now that their respective schedules are a bit lighter (Ben has wrapped on his film, but I think J.Lo is still on location), there are still plans afoot to spend the holidays together. So is a Christmas wedding in the cards? What about a New Year’s wedding? A Valentine’s wedding?! A President’s Day wedding?!!! From Us Weekly:

It’s full steam ahead for Bennifer 2.0! A source tells Us that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are talking about tying the knot early next year. “They’re thinking of doing a small private ceremony, although Ben wants a big flashy affair,” says the source, adding that Affleck, 49, “adores Jennifer so much and wants to profess his love in the most over-the-top way.” But Lopez, 52, is insisting on keeping things low-key. Adds the source, “She’s flattered, but she doesn’t want a media frenzy.”

[From US Weekly, print edition, November 22, 2021]

We joke around about how J.Lo has been married a million times and how she marries every guy she dates, but she actually doesn’t do that anymore! She didn’t marry Alex Rodriguez because, I believe, she knows in her gut that he’s a douchebag. She didn’t marry Casper Smart because ew, why would she. But with Ben, it is different. So much unfinished business, so many years since their first romance. Would I love to see them get married? For sure. Do I think it’s going to happen in, like, January? No. I don’t. The only reason for them to marry that soon is if she was going to be his date at all of the awards shows (omg) and she wanted to promote Marry Me, which is out on February 11 (omg). So… yeah, come to think of it, MAYBE!

    She didn’t married Diddy either, I think he is the one who proposed and she refused.

    • Moonglight says:

      I don’t think Diddy was the one who proposed. He never got married and I don’t think he was ever even engaged? I’m pretty sure it was Casper she rejected it.

  2. Amy Bee says:

    I think they will get married but it won’t be early 2022.

  3. Karisma says:

    “Ben wants a big flashy affair” we can already tell this US weekly article is some bullshit lol

    • SarahLee says:

      If by “big flashy affair” he means “giant-ass party” then yeah, maybe I can see it. Otherwise, I’m with you and call BS.

    • Marietta2381 says:

      It’s just Benny Medina reminding us, “they’re meant to be!” I can see Ben just doing something low-key IF he marries again. Personally, most guys I know could care less about the actual wedding, they want the person they are marrying to just be happy.

      This screams JLo… but not Ben.

      • Karisma says:

        “This screams JLo… but not Ben.”
        Yup I totally agree

        And that part is honestly hilarious
        But Lopez, 52, is insisting on keeping things low-key. Adds the source, “She’s flattered, but she doesn’t want a media frenzy.”

    • a0 says:

      Yeah, that seems off. He eloped for his first wedding and has never had big blow-out birthday parties either

  4. Sunny says:

    We joke about JLo’s 3 divorces but Angelina and Drew Barrymore are younger and have had three divorces as well.

    I think it’s better for women to exit problematic r/ships than worry about the stigma of being divorced multiple times—who cares?

    • Me says:

      Jlo and her sources plaster her all over the news when she’s dating. Every relationship she acts like a silly teenager in love. Drew and Jolie don’t date much so they are not even remotely comparable.

      • Selene says:

        Um, Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob doesn’t ring a bell? They truly were like two teenagers with raging hormones.

      • girl_ninja says:

        What? You bess go back through your old celebrity gossip sites and review the way both Drew and Angie were with their past husbands/lovers.

      • Darlings says:

        Jlo didn’t even date that much either? She’s 52 and she’s been (publicly at least) with her first husband, Diddy, Chris Judd, Ben, Marc, Casper, arod and that’s pretty much it. I don’t understand why ppl are slutshaming her constantly

      • Joey says:

        Omg finally someone said it! Jlo is 52 and since we have come to know her (she became famous at 28 after Selena) she has dated/married a total of 7 men and she gets slut-shamed for it. Good lord I would love to know how slut shamed I would be for how many men I have dated!

      • Simmons says:

        I think it’s the seemingly casual way of going in and out of engagements and marriages that draws the public frowning. Her first two marriages were really short-lived and she married her third husband just 6 months after Ben dumped her. Mid America see marriage as a sacred institution. Case in point: she quickly rebounded with Ben just days after she broke up the engagement with ARod.

      • Me says:

        Jlo is as thirsty and needy for attention as they come. It’s a personality trait and mental health issue. The slutshamimg accusations are a huge stretch but people always push this narrative as a way to control the conversation.

    • Joey says:

      Agreed! Why are we judging women for leaving relationships that aren’t healthy for them?

      • Darlings says:

        The jlo slutshaming is so disgusting and most of the time it comes from other women. She was always in pretty long relationship too, I mean the girl stayed what? 4/5 years with casper and pretty much the same with arod. People act like she’s jumping from bed to bed

      • Jules says:

        @Darlings Oh please, so some commenters don’t stan Jlo … and get called slutshamers? Let’s have some discernment here and stop the pearl clutching.

      • Darlings says:

        @ Jules if the shoe fits 😃

      • Otaku fairy says:

        @Darlings: You aren’t wrong. Obviously it’s not every situation where she’s criticized or not liked (and no one honestly believes you were saying she must be stanned). But it has happened.

  5. Ambrosial says:

    There is so much talks about them getting married, between her movie marry me, the interviews she gave about it etc
    I’m wondering is it some kind of call to Ben or a sure thing? Because he did leave her at the altar the first time around he must know jlo will accept nothing less than a wedding this time right?

  6. Veronika says:

    Those two cheeseballs will absolutely try for a wedding, or at least engagement, to promote her Marry Me movie or Valentines Day.

  7. Barrett says:

    omg that boob, chain dress, soooooo extra! I cant even.

    Oh J.Lo I’m hear for your tea w Ben!

    • LovesitinNM says:

      And seriously her body looks amazing. Can we get a famous sculptor to immortalize her?

      • Sid says:

        I know people like to yell plastic surgery and I don’t doubt she has had her share of work done like most in the entertainment industry, but man she is blessed genetically in addition to whatever she does in terms of diet and exercise. For her to still have those abs in her 50s after having twins when she was almost 40 is quite something.

    • meloroast says:

      Ya i’m just mesmerized by her breasts. Truly amazing.

  8. RoyalBlue says:

    If they just want the ceremony of marriage why don’t they have a symbolic ceremony, but the ring and have a huge party after. is it really important to them to do this legally at this time. two wealthy people whose children will be well provided for. they can get into a solid common law relationship without the wedding.

    • Kebbie says:

      I agree. Jennifer Aniston style wedding is the way to go at that age with that much money on both sides. You get the party and the rings and the public attention and none of the legal mess afterwards.

      • RoyalBlue says:

        exactly. i know someone who is in her 60s with a previously very unhappy marriage and has met the love of her life and are considering marriage. her therapist asked her….why is the ceremony so important to her and asked her to consider what will be missing if she just threw the party for friends. i found it an interesting perspective.

    • ElleV says:

      correct me if im wrong but aren’t common law relationships treated like a marriage after a certain point anyway? in which case, rich people especially should *want* to get married legally so that they can draw up prenups to protect their assets

  9. Lena says:

    Remember JLo’s People (Benny Medina) floated that Alex was going to propose ‘at any minute’ at least six months or more before she went to that awards show all down in the dumps and he finally did it. This is her MO. Hint until they do it. She didn’t marry Alex R because she knows in her gut that he’s a douchebag so hopefully she knows in her gut same thing about multiple assaulter Ben Affleck who gets a pass here for some reason.

    • Me says:

      Right? Everyone forgot about his assaults and the way he dumped Jlo. Lol weird that this mess is relationship goals for some 😂

      • HeatherC says:

        I don’t know if they’re “relationship goals” but they’re totally gossip goals. Old school, soapy and campy. I’m here for more.

    • Simmons says:

      Is grabbing someone classified an assault now? If that is the case, do we have a new definition for harrassment?

      • nina says:

        Grabbing someone has always been regarded as an assault. Its referred to as an unwanted touching. Somebody grabs me, I’m definitely pressing charges. My attitude regarding touching me like that, keep your hands to yourself, you are no longer a toddler who cannot control his/her emotions.

      • Simmons says:

        Pray enlighten me then what’s your new definition for harrassment? And FYI, one can both press charges for harrassment and assault.

  10. Darlings says:

    Jlo wants to get married she couldn’t be more vocal about it. I don’t know about Ben though. I feel like I read multiples times before he didn’t want to get married again? I guess we’ll see but there is no way jlo isn’t getting at least an engagement.

    • Simmons says:

      She wants to get married and has started to put pressure on him based on OK articles and Gossip Cop.

  11. CJ says:

    They have basically known one another for their entire adult lives. I am sick of all the judgement our culture wallow in of late and thrilled to see people right the capsized boat of their failures and have a happily ever after. Why wouldn’t you want that for other people no matter what you think of them.

    • Karine says:

      Seriously LOVE this comment!

    • Joey says:

      👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 Yes exactly!! All these miserable people casting so much judgement on people they don’t even know. It’s sad and gross. Says ALOT about the state of other peoples unhappiness.

  12. alane says:

    I doubt they’ll wed but if they do I’ll be in the crowd wishing them well. But I just don’t see it, mainly because of Ben’s drinking and gambling problems. I don’t see him giving up either for very long.

  13. b says:

    Jenny Beenaroundtheblock and Ben Afflicted will get married then divorced in the next ten years.

  14. Simmons says:

    I suspect the over the top Bennifer summer is A. Ben’s compensation for the way he dumped her and talked about her at the end of Bennifer 1.0/post thereof it; B. JLo’s territorial claim of him by erasing the pop culture event of 2020 that is the BenAna pap stroll; C. Ben was in Bruce Wayne/Batman mode (this one is my personal conspiracy speculation of something he likely did in the dark which might unfold in the coming December when he starts to run his Oscar campaign for The Tender Bar and The Last Duel.

  15. Karisma says:

    Or it was just bennifer being bennifer they were always over the top like this even during 1.0 he took a full ad to sing her praises, the non stop spending, the Bentley, the pink diamond, the Jenny from the block mv, the makeover, the joined interview, the pda everywhere etc.

  16. Deport Trump says:

    Jen is so proud of her little saggies

    • EveV says:

      Um, excuse me, “her little saggies” ?!? I take major offense to this comment and I don’t get offended easily, especially on a gossip site. She’s definitely had surgery but she’s 52 ffs and every part of her body still looks incredible!!! Now, me after 3 kids, and no surgery, there’s some sagginess happening there but I would be pissed if someone called them “my little saggies” wtf
