J.Lo and Ben Affleck Get Married in Las Vegas

Hollywood stars Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have gotten married in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Affleck and Lopez were engaged in 2003 before they broke it off a year later, blaming “excessive media attention”.

“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient,” Lopez said.

Lopez confirmed her marriage with Affleck on her fan website OntheJLo.

Chris Appleton, Lopez’s hairdresser, posted a video of her in her wedding dress on Instagram.

“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,” Lopez said.

Lopez said that she and Affleck arrived at The Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas before midnight and thanked the venue for staying open for them.

“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. Best night of our lives,” Lopez said.
