Marriage isn’t for everyone, but after two decades, it is for Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. I am not sure if it’s the fact I have been unpacking a house or if it’s the fact that I cant stand Ben Affleck that brings pain to my body as I write that sentence.
Now, I am apparently really going to have to sign up for Jennifer Lopez’s newsletter, because she drops a lot of good shit in there – especially the first time we’ve seen her use her new last name.
Granted, in fairness, they just got married this weekend. Her newsletter was entitled, We Did It!, and well, they sure the hell did.
“Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient,” she wrote in the newsletter, signing it Jennifer Lynn Affleck. Queue tears.
The marriage license that the two had obtained had signified that she had planned on taking his last name.
Respect to that. More respect that they got married at the Little White Chapel, which is what this girl would do too.
“Stick around long enough and maybe you’ll find the best moment of your life in a drive through in Las Vegas at 12:30 in the morning in the tunnel of love drive through with your kids and the one you’ll spend forever with,” said Lopez in her newsletter.
The two are cute and hey, after all this time, they’ve found a way to make things work, so who are we to hate on that.
The two flew to Sin City and got married just like anyone else. Most impressive to me, is that they didn’t hire someone to wait in line and call them when it was their turn to get their marriage license. That’s always a positive thing – loving someone enough that you are willing to do the big and the small things.

We do wish them the best of love and a great life together. Everyone deserves happiness and we’re happy that they both have found it.
Just a side note to all my exes, please don’t come looking for me after 20 years, that is not a Bennifer situation. I still hate you.
