“Ben and I laughed the night before about getting married again at our age. We had both been married before and we aren’t exactly kids anymore but somehow now seemed like the only age that made sense. I had recently read something Rainer Marie Rilke wrote in ‘Letters to a Young Poet' about love. He said one has to be ready for love. For one human to love another is the most difficult task. It is the work for which all other work is merely preparation.’ Being able to love someone so that you want to be better for them and make them happy because giving happiness and love becomes more joyful than receiving it, is truly sublime adult love,” she said.

“The truth is everyone’s story is different and we all have our paths to travel. No two people are the same. But for us, this was perfect timing. Nothing ever felt more right to me, and I knew we were finally ‘settling down' in a way you can only do when you understand loss and joy and you are battle tested enough to never take the important things for granted or let the silly insignificant nuisances of the day get in the way of embracing every precious moment,” she said.

“The twenty years between those dreams of youth and the adult world of love and family we embraced that day, brought more to this marriage than either of us ever could have imagined. We weren’t only marrying one another; we were marrying these children into a new family. They were the only people we asked to stand up for us at our wedding party. To our great honor and joy, each one did,” she said.

Even before the couple tied the knot, Lopez and Affleck’s children had already forged a close bond with each other. Throughout the past year since the A-listers got back together, their children have been photographed hanging out in public on multiple occasions.
