The Batman actor said that they did not marry the first time because they needed to have their respective children.

Lopez has Max and Emme, 14, with ex-husband Marc Anthony and Affleck has Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Sam, 10, with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner.

A source told the site: ‘Ben made an impassioned speech professing his love for Jennifer and her children and said the children are the blessing and gift that happened because they didn’t get married before and that is proof that everything happens for a reason. ‘

Ben and Jen became engaged 20 years ago but they called off their nuptials in 2003.
