They are smooching in a yacht near Saint-Tropez. They are cuddling while walking in the Hamptons. They are snoozing over sushi at Malibu’s dinner.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are the champions of PDA if it were an Olympic sport. Bennifer’s interest is driven by something else: Bennifer’s storybook love story.

After their breakup in 2004, the A-listers rekindled romance 17 years later. This is a common path for many couples who have reunited years later after breaking up.

They spoke out about tabloid pressure being a factor in their decision to end their engagement. Lopez told People in 2016 that he thought Lopez was thinking of a different time and a different thing. Who knows what might have happened? But they were truly in love.

The tabloids don’t bother regular people who have rekindled their love, but genuine love is universal regardless of what happened.

“She never left me thoughts. “There was something about her, something in her soul, her spirit that I felt just as drawn to even though I got older,” Matt Escobar Sr., 43, said of Jessica.

California couple, Merced and Escobar, were met in eighth grade math class. Escobar was sent to live in Seattle with his uncle to escape his troubles in New York.

Their first kiss was shared on a walk through the woods in that year. But Escobar’s reckless behavior continued and he was arrested for assault and robbery. He was expelled from the area and returned East where he settled in a detention center.

The two of them fell in more trouble, including a time on the streets. They lost touch for 15 years, before Escobar found her on There were many other things that happened between then, including marriages, children and moves, but Jessica never forgot.

She said that Matt was her longtime friend and she would never be able to match him. She said that even though he was troubled, he was always kind, respectful, and just very funny.

They were married in 2013 and they have six children together.

Escobar stated, “It was such an honor to have her back in mine life after all the difficult stuff I had been through.”

Meg Calkins (a 56-year old college professor in Raleigh, North Carolina) and Steve Badger (a 52-year-old lawyer of the same ages), became close friends in Indianapolis during fifth grade. Through high school, they remained close friends but became college sweethearts in junior year.

Calkins laughed, “I made it the first move.” Calkins laughed and I told him that I had a crush on him. We have always been close because we love to talk to each other and get each others’ humor.
