Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Got Married

Guess Jennifer Lopez, 49, and Ben Affleck, 52, were soulmates all these years. The two celebs got married this weekend in Las Vegas.

Lopez broke the details in her news letter “On the JLO.” I honestly never knew she had a newsletter. She needs a podcast, everyone has one now.

Lopez wrote:

We did it. Love is beautiful. Love in kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient.

She then continues with details about their walk down the aisle. How they married at Little White Wedding chapel in Las Vegas. Lopez wore an old dress from a movie, while Ben dug out a jacket from his closet.

According to E! News, both Affleck and Lopez each brought along one of their kids to the ceremony. Affleck has three kids with Jennifer Garner: Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10. Meanwhile, Lopez has two 14-year-old twins with singer Marc Anthony: Emme and Max. Unknown which kids attended the ceremony.

Lopez has taken Affleck’s last name after the marriage, now officially known as Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck.

This is a change from twenty years ago when they first started dating.

Last year, Affleck says Lopez took a lot of racist and sexist comments from others when they dated in the early 200s.

Per PEOPLE:

“People were so fucking mean about her — sexist, racist. Ugly, vicious shitwas written about her in ways that if you wrote it now you would literally be fired for saying those things you said. Now it’s like, she’s lionized and respected for the work she did, where she came from, what she accomplished — as well she fucking should be! I would say you have a better shot, coming from the Bronx, of ending up as like [Justice Sonia] Sotomayor on the Supreme Court than you do of having Jennifer Lopez’s career and being who she is at 50 years old today.”

Yes, now people keep a lid on their racism. But not in Boston, where Affleck’s from. Look at all the athletes, like LeBron, who call Boston “racist as f**k.”

Will Affleck and Lopez have more kids? Not according to Hollywood Life‘s source.

They do not want any new children – they are both past that part in their lives,

I wonder if they imagine what life would’ve been like if they could’ve worked out the first time around. Obviously, they wouldn’t have had the five kids they have now. But if the paparazzi and hate they received wasn’t as bad, they could be celebrating their twentieth wedding anniversary this year instead of being newlyweds.

Read Lopez’s whole post from her newsletter below.

We did it. Love is beautiful. Love in kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient.

Exactly what we wanted. Last night we flew to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world. 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.

We barely made it to the little white wedding chapel by midnight. They graciously stayed open late a few minutes, let us take pictures in a pink Cadillac convertible, evidently once used by the king himself (but if we wanted Elvis himself to show, that cost extra and he was in bed).

So with the best witnesses you could ever imagine, a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben’s closet, we read our own vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives. They even had Bluetooth for a (short) march down the aisle. But in the end it was the best possible wedding we could have imagined. One we dreamed of long ago and one made real (in the eyes of the state, Las Vegas, a pink convertible and one another) at very, very long last.

When love is real, the only thing that matters in marriage is one another and the promise we make to love, care, understand, be patient, loving and good to one another. We had that. And so much more. Beat night of our lives. Thank you to the Little White Wedding chapel for letting me use the break room to change while Ben changed in the men’s room.

They were right when they said, “all you need is love”. We are so grateful to have that in abundance, a new wonderful family of five amazing children and a life that we have never had more reason to look forward to. Stick around long enough and maybe you’ll find the best moment of your life in a drive through in Las Vegas at twelve thirty in the morning in the tunnel of love drive through, with your kids and the one you’ll spend forever with Love is a great thing, maybe the best of things and worth waiting for.

With love, Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck
