Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Hope to Overcome Their Difficult Time

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are not giving up on their marriage. While the couple is “taking some time apart,” they still want to get through this “difficult time” together.

An insider close to their relationship revealed to Us Weekly that the two are currently “living separate lives” and that it was Lopez’s idea to “just take time to figure it out.”

“They are going through so much individually and as a couple,” another source told Us Weekly. “They may take some time to see if this complicated moment can resolve itself, and they come back to each other as better people.”

A third source mentioned that there is a “sliver of hope” for the couple to work things out.

The sentiment was reiterated by the second source, who emphasized that although they’re going through a rough patch, “They don’t hate each other — they’re just going through difficult times.”

This recent development follows their holiday celebrations spent apart. Lopez was seen in her home state of New York with her twins Emme and Max, while Affleck stayed in Los Angeles.

Earlier this month, it was confirmed that the two are selling their $61 million Beverly Hills mansion, which they purchased together in 2023. According to reports from People, Affleck has removed his belongings from the house, and the two are living separately with Lopez back at the marital estate.

Lopez and Affleck have a long romantic past. The two were previously engaged back in 2004 after dating for two years. They called off the engagement but continued to date for a short time before ending their relationship for good. However, back in 2021, the couple rekindled their romance and decided to finish what they previously started. They got married in Las Vegas in 2022.

Over the past few months, Lopez and Affleck have dealt with some alleged marital woes that have gone public. The couple was not seen photographed together for over a month back in March. Despite a few outings at family events, there still seem to be public underlying issues, leading Lopez’s family to speak out.

“Jennifer’s mom told her, ‘Cut your losses and move on to avoid getting any deeper in this mess,'” an insider told the Daily Mail.

“He’s not the person she built him up to be. It’s taken too much of a toll on her, and because of this, she’s lost sight of who she is and what she stands for,” the insider added.

Lopez’s mom is not the only one who feels that it’s best for Jennifer to leave. Her family agrees with their mom’s sentiment that the singer has “lost sight of who she is.”

“Jennifer currently feels like Ben does not deserve her, and her sisters agree,” the insider continued about what her sisters Leslie Ann and Lynda think of their sister’s marriage. “They want Jennifer to be happy, of course, but they feel their sister is getting so caught up in what it was supposed to be that she isn’t seeing it for what it is now.”
