When: 2002-2004; 2021-Present
After Judd, Lopez had a long engagement with Ben Affleck that lasted a little over a year and a half. The two broke things off in 2004 but remained in touch. Lopez told People, "I think different time different thing, who knows what could've happened, but there was a genuine love there." That should have been a sign that the love was still there because, after almost two decades, the two rekindled things last spring. What seemed like a publicity stunt is confirmed to be a solid relationship.
In fact, in an interview with The New York Times, Lopez spoke about why the relationship seems to be working the second time around. "I would say we learned our lesson the first time," she said. "To hold it sacred," she added. "You have to do what feels good to you all the time. But at the same time, you learn from the past, you do things better the second time. There's a part of it that, yes, we're together. But there's a part of it that's not, you know, being so open the way we were when we were so young and in love many years ago."
On July 17, 2022, the two got married in a small ceremony after obtaining a marriage license in Clark County, NV, and seem over-the-hills in love with each other. We couldn't be happy for them both!
