Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner: what they were like

49-year-old Affleck, who exchanged vows with 52-year-old Lopez on Saturday, July 16, in Las Vegas, wrote that he divorced 50-year-old Garner on July 16, 2013 in a written application for a marriage license. However, the former couple did not finalize the divorce until October 2018. The duo filed for divorce in April 2017 after announcing their split in June 2015.

Lopez, for her part, announced the date of her divorce from Marc Anthony on July 1, 2011. Although the “Jenny From the Block” singer and 53-year-old Anthony announced their divorce in 2011, the divorce was not finalized until 2014. The “On the Floor” singer shares 14-year—old twins Emma and Maximilian with Anthony, and the “Argo” star shares three children with Garner – Violet, 16, Serafina, 13, and Samuel, 10.

Bennifer’s wedding took place 18 years after the couple called off their first engagement in 2004. The Hustlers actress talked about the wedding in her newsletter the day after the ceremony in Sin City.

“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out that love is patient. Twenty years of patience,” she wrote. “[The wedding] was exactly what we wanted. Last night we flew to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, and they all made the same trip to the wedding capital of the world.”
