 Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s marriage ‘not over yet’ despite ‘high tension’


Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, approaching their second wedding anniversary, are reportedly taking a break from each other by living separately. A source close to the couple has revealed that they are spending time apart to figure out their future together.

In recent events, Ben Affleck was seen without his wedding ring while attending a recital for his daughter Seraphina, 15, whom he shares with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner. This absence of the wedding band fueled speculation about the status of his relationship with Lopez. In contrast, Jennifer Lopez was spotted wearing her wedding ring and engaging in conversation with Affleck, adding to the mixed signals about their relationship status.

“Jen and Ben’s relationship is not over yet, but they have been staying in separate homes and the tension has been high,” the source told Entertainment Tonight. “They are taking a second to figure out what each of them is going through and wants. Both of them have been very down.” As earlier reported In Touch Weekly, Lopez, 54, and Affleck, 51, “moved out” and spent increasing time apart from each other.

“The writing is on the wall – it’s over,” the insider dishes. “They’re headed for a divorce – and for once, [Ben’s] not to blame!” “She realizes that will always be the case because she’s an artist and there are people who don’t get her or know her,” the source said.

Affleck, known for his role in the film “Hypnotic,” is reputed for prioritizing his family and personal well-being, often expressing his disdain for excessive media attention. According to a source, Ben’s primary focus is his family and maintaining a balanced life. This perspective is particularly important to him, especially considering his past challenges with the media spotlight.

Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez, the star of “The Boy Next Door” and a successful singer, appears to be handling the situation differently. A source revealed to ET that Lopez has not been overly concerned with the external criticism and speculation. Having dealt with public scrutiny throughout her career, she understands that being misunderstood by some is part of her life in the limelight. Lopez remains focused on her personal and professional endeavors, undeterred by outside opinions.

The couple, who tied the knot in July 2022, have faced numerous public and private challenges since rekindling their romance. Their decision to spend time apart may be a strategic move to assess their relationship dynamics and individual needs. As both stars navigate their careers and personal lives, their fans are left to speculate about the future of their high-profile relationship.

The separation news has generated considerable buzz, with many fans and media outlets closely watching for any updates. Despite the uncertainties, both Lopez and Affleck continue to prioritize their personal well-being and family commitments, suggesting that their separation might be a temporary measure rather than a permanent decision.

As the couple continues to navigate this period of introspection, the public remains curious about the outcome. Will Lopez and Affleck reconcile and strengthen their bond, or will they ultimately decide to part ways? Only time will tell as they both seek clarity on their path forward.
