singer and actress Jennifer Lopez reflected on her ’empowering’ marriage to Ben Affleck during a candid photo shoot for the cover of Vogue magazine.

The love of JLO and Ben Affleck
It was a love affair for history, with the couple, affectionately known as benniferrekindling their romance two decades after their failed first engagement.
With their romance taking them both far from traditional, J Lo explained that their marriage is also a modern affair, revealing that she is “proud” to take her husband’s last name and that she finds the move “empowering”, but strangely suggests that the goal is that carrying the last name “no ‘it doesn’t have any romantic overtones’.
She explained: ‘People are still going to call me Jennifer Lopez. But my legal name will be Mrs. Affleck because we are united. We are husband and wife. IM proud of that.
‘I don’t think that’s a problem… It’s not traditional. He has no romance. It feels like it’s a power move, you know what I mean? I have a lot of control over my own life and destiny and I feel empowered as a woman and as a person. I can understand that people have their feelings about it, and that’s fine too.
