Turns out Bennifer’s wedding day was special with Ben Affleck – ready special we mean!
As you know, he and Jennifer Lopez surprise the whole world when they are surprised tie the knot in an intimate ceremony in Small white wedding chapel in Las Vegas on Saturday. The 52-year-old singer talked about their wedding the next day, writing in her newsletter On J.Lo:
“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patience. Twenty years of patience. [The wedding was] exactly what we want. Last night we flew to Vegas, standing in line for permits with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world.”
Jennifer didn’t even hesitate for a second to change her legal name from “Jennifer Lopez” to “Jennifer Affleck” on the marriage certificate. But that’s not surprising because She’s been planning to make the switch ever since the couple first got engaged many years ago.
However, another very difficult detail came to light from their marriage certificate? The dates they listed for divorce from their respective spouses are WRONG! Huh?!
Based on Our weeklyBen lists his divorce date from Jennifer Garner exactly nine years before his wedding to Hustlers actress. He wrote in his marriage license affidavit that the two officially divorced on July 16, 2013. Now, this is an odd (and somewhat confusing) confirmation since that’s the complete date. wrong! They actually finalized their divorce in October 2018. Even more, Ben and Jen didn’t even announce their split until June 2015 and never filed until April 2017. Yes Is he trying to say that he and Garner were done before they even announced it?
For her part, Jennifer listed her divorce date from Marc Anthony on July 1, 2011 – but they didn’t finalize their split until June 2014. It’s important to note, however, that they revealed they would go separate ways in 2011. So maybe she made a mistake? Or is she setting their parting date??
But still, something doesn’t add here…
Why did Ben set the date as nine years to date he and J.Lo are married? Exact date. Is it an important day for Ben and Jen? Or another Bennifer?? There seems to be a hidden meaning there… Until the date or for nine years part. Does it matter to J.Lo??
Or was this simply a mistake and both of them forgot about it when they divorced their ex-partner? The duo has been reported in a hurry to get married in Sin City since Selena star “wants to lock this up and eliminate any chance of cold feet ASAP!” So the newlyweds probably didn’t think much of these details, didn’t have their documents available to double check… and just wrote down some days??
According to the Clark County website, if someone doesn’t “know the exact date,” they can simply “enter a date closest to your recollection.” So who knows! Luckily for them, it looks like this will be an easy fix for Ben and Jennifer as the fix can be done by simply filling out a form.
