Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck surprised their fans when they rekindled their romance last year. Since then, the happy couple has been inseparable. In fact, there are claims that it’s only a matter of time before Affleck proposes to Lopez.
Globe, in its Feb. 7 issue, claimed that Jennifer Lopez and Affleck’s relationship is not all that it seems. After all, things have just been working out between the A-listers because the Marry Me actress threatened her boyfriend.
Ben Affleck Struggling To Make His Relationship With Jennifer Lopez Work
An unnamed source claimed that Affleck has been on his best behavior because Lopez told him that she would dump him if he doesn’t change.
“The theme of this relationship is that Ben is getting a second chance, not Jennifer, and Ben better not screw it up. So far, he’s been on his best behavior. He doesn’t think anymore and he'd whipped himself into his best shape in years,” the unnamed source said.
Jennifer Lopez Tries To Change Ben Affleck
One of the things that Affleck has gotten accustomed to is working out. Even though the Batman v Superman actor hates waking up very early in the morning to hit the gym, it’s something that he has learned to love because of his girlfriend.
“They begin at dawn with a sweaty workout and she’s got him loading up on vitamins and a healthy diet plan, and the results show. He looks great and he’s happier than he’s been in years. The key is Ben isn’t being a stubborn jerk the way he was during their first relationship. He just can’t afford to go off the rails right now when there’s so much excitement and goodwill around this revived romance,” the unnamed source said.
The unnamed source added that Lopez and Affleck’s relationship almost ended after the actor faced backlash for his comments about his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner. Since then, the dad of three has allegedly vowed to keep things to himself so that he won’t upset Lopez.
“Jennifer’s laid down the law to Ben – no drinking, no partying, and definitely no strip clubs, and Ben’s like a docile puppy dog. She’s molding him into the man she knew he could be and he obviously likes it,” the unnamed source concluded.
Jennifer Lopez Shares Her Biggest Lesson After Rekindling Romance With Ben Affleck
During her interview with The New York Times, Lopez surprisingly opened up about her relationship with Affleck. And her revelations prove that there’s no trouble in paradise after all.
Affleck reportedly entered the room while Lopez was being interviewed just to say hello to his girlfriend. After he left, Lopez shared how different her relationship with Affleck is now compared to the first time that they got together.
She said that one of the biggest lessons that she learned was to hold things sacred.
“You have to do what feels good to you all the time. But at the same time, you learn from the past, you do things better the second time. There’s a part of it that, yes, we’re together. But there’s a part of it that’s not, you know, being so open the way we were when we were so young and in love many years ago,” Lopez said.
Jennifer Lopez Is Still A Hopeless Romantic
Despite her failed relationships with Marc Anthony, Alex Rodriguez, and more, Lopez is still a hopeless romantic. She also admitted that she doesn’t beat herself up too much over the things that she did and didn’t do.
“You can’t live life and think that things are just mistakes: I just messed up there, I messed up there. No, it’s all lessons. It’s really what can you extrapolate from it that is going to help you grow and go to the next level of understanding yourself, finding yourself and being able to be at peace with your life, at peace with who you are,” Lopez explained.
