Ben Affleck & J.Lo’s friends think their engagement is ‘only a matter of time’

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have been back together since last April or thereabouts. I tend to believe that Affleck started pursuing her and writing her love emails/letters back in February/March 2021, and I believe Ben was “the reason” why J.Lo was so thoroughly over Alex Rodriguez, and why she walked away clean. In the past eight months or so, I’ve enjoyed the Bennifer Revival and all of the photos and PR around it. It’s been a joy, honestly. A messy joy. A few months ago, I did start to wonder if Bennifer would end before a wedding though. It just felt like… maybe the vibe was off, maybe the revival would be canceled before an exchange of rings. But maybe not.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s love is still real!

“Jen and Ben are doing great. Ben’s interview with Howard Stern didn’t really put too much of a strain on their relationship. They understand that things like this happen sometimes, and words can get misconstrued,” a source tells ET about the couple, who rekindled their romance in 2021.

“They are madly in love and Jen totally has Ben’s back, which is why she wanted to make her support and stance known publicly. Things between their children are pretty organic at this point. The families respect each other and also get along, so things are all good and fine on that front. Their friends think they will get engaged eventually and it’s only a matter of time,” the source continued.

Jennifer’s film Marry Me comes out on February 11th, so… this is what the promotion is going to look like. “Are you open to getting married again?” And: “If Ben asked, what would you say?” And: “Do you ever look at Ben and think ‘marry me’?” It will be a good promotional tour and I would imagine that J.Lo already has her answers worked out. That being said, the promo would go a lot smoother if Ben would propose in the next week!!! He won’t though. Or has he already? God, I don’t know anymore. This could go either way.

    It’s so cringe to be put on the spot and asked if you want to marry someone. But it’s PR for her. Pressure for Ben. The promo of this film could hurt them.

    I hope they stay together. Their reunion brings me so much joy.

    I’m not trying to be mean but am I the only person that notices that J-Lo is incapable of being alone or have any time between her relationships. Her codependency is always so frustrating for me and she can’t seem to ever NOT be in a serious relationship and on the cusp of a next marriage..

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ Kimma, no it’s not just you. I have been screaming to the JLo gods for her to get some codependency counseling!! The fact that JLo can’t be alone is just a nasty rash that will only become worse the longer she doesn’t seek help for it. I don’t think that JLo has ever been single! I clicked on an article with Ranker about infidelities within celebrities and
      JLo was involved with someone in each and everyone of her relationships. JLo can’t handle being alone which is why I think her relationships seem to tank within a certain period of time.

    • lulu+brown says:

      @Kimma, I agree with you. This is not a love story but two people who can’t be alone. They are both co-dependant, he can’t live without the alcohol and she can’t seem to live without a man and the press.

    I think they will be engaged by Christmas.

    Who is happier Deep Water is shelved indefinitely? J Lo so her rom-com romance movie and relationship isn’t compared to Ben’s former erotic thriller relationship or Ben whose Oscar campaign doesn’t have to deal with a potential dud of a was supposed to be but turned out not to be all that erotic or thrilling movie?

    I cannot wait for marry me, bit of warming fluffy nonsense that is needed right now 🙂

    I think she is trying to put pressure on him. It feels deja vu like when she put the same treatment on ARod like in 2018 and then he finally proposed in 2019.

  7. Karisma says:

    I feel like we’ve been hearing those engagements rumors since they got back together and still nothing is happening. Jlo wants that happy ever after and a wedding is a part of it for her but Ben I don’t know I don’t see him getting married again

    • MariettaJones2381 says:

      I don’t think they’ll get engaged, or if they do- it will end just like it did last time, or quickly after they announce it. JLo will marry someone else and so will Ben. He wants marriage (the look of him being stable and structure of the happy family), but also feels confined by it. But he will marry again.
      JLo will too, hopefully she will marry someone who appreciates her fire and zeal for herself (lol) . God willing she will not turn out like Madonna! But marries someone who is hot and treats her well, also gives her the spotlight. ARod would have been perfect had he not cheated! (grant it he’s definitely not hot or appealing in any way lol)

  8. Karisma says:

    Arod giving her the spotlight? Lol they were both fighting for it, remember her sources about her being happy to not being with someone seeing her as a competition.

  9. Turtle says:

    I used to be involved with an alcoholic.
    Don’t know what the status of his sobriety is but he looks toasted in every photo I see of him. She won’t tolerate that long enough to be married to him.

  10. Robert Phillips says:

    I don’t care if they get engaged or not. But if he does propose he should give her a plastic ring. Maybe one of those candy ones. That honking pink diamond from last time didn’t seem to work. So go the opposite. Plus this will make JLo either leave and admit she’s a money grubbing whore. Or have to pretend she loves it and is really in it for the love.

  11. LKI says:

    Honestly, I’d love for them to get married and for them to actually work out. JLo has certainly put in effort to make sure this relationship works. She moved across the country, has become more “private”, has reduced the people in her entourage, and has even started driving again for the first time since like 2005. One of her closest friends, Shawn, has openly expressed on Instagram that Ben is the love of JLo’s life so I hope JLo can finally get her fairytale ending with him.
