Jennifer Lopez has always had the power to begin and end committed relationships back to back without a hiccup. Her reunion with ex-Ben Affleck seems to be just another example of that. A couple of months ago she was engaged to marry Alex Rodriguez. Now sources are seeing she is going to go all-in to make sure things work out with Ben Affleck this time around.
The biggest problem that the couple is facing is their long-distance relationship. However, both can well afford decent means of transportation.
The whole Bennifer 2.0 hype train got up to full speed when the couple was spotted on a Montana vacation. It’s only fitting that now insiders are saying the two are committed to traveling constantly to see each other.
Ben spends most of his time in L.A.these days, while Jennifer calls Miami home most of the year. Currently Ben is spending time in Florida. A source tells People that,
“They will travel back and forth as much as they can to make things work,”

In the past, Jennifer had mentioned that one of the things that put a strain on their relationship was the media attention that the couple got. This time around other than traveling they are also committed to not hiding. That’s why we saw Jlo doing yoga on the balcony at their Miami rental house a couple of mornings ago.
Jlo mentioned of the pressure in her previous relationship, “We just happened to be together at the birth of the tabloids, and it was like ‘Oh my God.’ It was just a lot of pressure,”

Bennifer 2.0 is very much in full swing there is no doubt about it. However, some insiders seem to think that the whole reunion was originally meant to get a reaction from Alex Rodriguez. An insider recently told The Hollywood Life,
“This started out with her trying to get a reaction from Alex, but then she realized it could turn into something and she’d be lying if she said that doesn’t make her feel good,”
Ben Affleck probably also knew that this was a whole thing to get back at Alex. Judging from where he was prior to the romance, he had few better things to do anyway.
The theory that Jlo was essentially just using Ben to get back at Alex could have a bit of legs for sure. Let’s not forget it was only just about a month ago that Ben Affleck was in the middle of a love scandal himself. After breaking up with Ana de Armas he was actively looking for someone to hook up with on Raya.
He was so desperate that he even confronted the girl for deleting him as a match! That of course, got him ousted on social media. Vacationing with Jlo in whatever capacity sounds much better than where he was a month or so ago!
