Ben Affleck and J.Lo, Shia LaBeouf and Mia Gott, Hailey and Justin Bieber are just some of the couples who have rekindled their romance after a breakup, in some cases lasting not months but years. At the moment, the most current show business couple who gave their love a second chance are Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. They tied the knot a few weeks ago at the actor’s mansion in Georgia. But the first time the couple got engaged was way back in 2003. However, then the two did not get married, but separated, blaming the media’s interference in their relationship.
After that, they both married other partners, started families and had children. Subsequently, they both divorced, had other relationships, but apparently the memory of their great love was alive somewhere. To the surprise of the whole world, Ben and JLo reunited in July 2021, with her even breaking off her engagement to Alex Rodriguez to reunite with the love of her life, namely Affleck.
Still, Bennifer, as the media calls them, although the most attractive, are far from the only couple in Hollywood who have broken up and gotten back together.
