It all started 20 years ago on the set of Jennifer Lopez's movie, Gigli. While the movie itself was a bit of a let-down, it would create something extraordinary and enduring: Bennifer.

Ben Affleck and J-Lo met on the set of the movie, and fell head-over-heels for one another. And so did the public. They instantly embraced the couple, dubbed them "Bennifer" and set out to consume very juicy detail of the then-young couple's rising love.

But it hasn't been a straight line from then to now. Although the couple tied the knot over the weekend in a flashy Vegas ceremony, sharing their "I do's" in a surprisingly low-key ceremony, there was a time when it seemed like they had no future at all.

They fell in love in 2002, and set their wedding date for 2003 but it never came to be. They broke up and she subsequently married musician Mark Anthony, while Affleck got serious with Jennifer Garner.

But love endures. Their other relationships dissolved, the couple got back together in 2021 and by early 2022 they were engaged again.

Now they're married - and rumors suggest that she's changed her name to Jennifer Affleck, which would be a huge revelation if confirmed true.

But what we do know is that over the years, the pair has made fans sweat with their steamy on-again-off-again love - and here's a look back at those moments.

9. The Movie That Started it All

Critics said they had no chemistry in Gigli, but fans beg to differ. After all, the on-screen love scenes were enough to spark an off-screen love affair that has come full circle after two decades.

8. Just a Jersey Girl

The couple hit the big screen again together in 2004 - after they had broken up, so that's a little awkward. But even the glances they shared on Jersey Girl were full of fiery emotions.
