‘I knew in my heart that I wanted to be with him for the rest of my life, I knew it. But it didn’t seem like we were going to make it,” the Wedding Planner actress said, adding: “And that’s why I got scared.’

At the time, Lopez was in his early 30s and Affleck was in his early 20s and she said she didn’t feel like they were mature enough to resolve their issues at the time and make the marriage work.

“Even though he was in his 20s and I was in my 30s, I still wasn’t… we weren’t ready to deal with it, look at each other and say, what we have is real.” “We have to make an effort, we have to work a little,” he explained. “We just weren’t there yet.”

Although she was not ready to marry Affleck at the time and broke up with him in January 2004, that same year she married singer Marc Anthony, 55, and welcomed twins Emme and Max, 15, in February 2008.

Meanwhile, the Air star married Jennifer Garner, 51, in 2005 and they welcomed three children together: Violet Anne, 18, Seraphina Rose, 15, and Samuel, 11.

The Maid in Manhattan star has been engaged six times and married four times.

Meanwhile, Affleck split from the Alias ​​star in 2015 after 13 years of marriage, citing the reason they simply “broke up” during a 2021 interview with Howard Stern.

“We went, we both tried, we found other people, we had beautiful children, we had other families and then we even had other relationships after that,” Lopez said in her interview with Lowe.

“It wasn’t until we both did, I know for me, a lot of work, and we got to a place where I thought, ‘You know what? I’m totally fine on my own. “I’m calm.” “I love my life, I have this amazing career that I’ve built for myself, I have these amazing kids… I have great friends.” That’s when she showed up again,” she said.

“And interestingly enough, he said he’d had the same kind of experience,” the I’m Real singer added. “And that’s how it happened.”

Lopez and Affleck got back together in 2021 and tied the knot in Las Vegas in 2022 and also had a larger wedding at the Good Will Hunting star’s estate in Georgia that summer.
