Jennifer Lopez has been doing better than most of us over the past two years. I mean, of course, that makes sense, she's Jennifer friggin Lopez — she's had a better 50 years than most of us combined. However, these past two years have been especially great for JLO. Not only did she initiate the breakup between her and Alexander Rodriguez, but she also rekindled her love affair with Ben Affleck.

Now, Jennifer is opening up about the Bennifer reboot.

Last year, fans went wild when Ben and Jen were spotted out together in April before confirming their love affair in July.

As we know, the pair were engaged back in the early 2000's before calling off their wedding in 2004.

While speaking with "People" Jennifer admitted she is very invested in the privacy of her relationship with Ben.

She explained that the pair were naive when they first got together, but their time apart has made them stronger.

"We're older now, we're smarter, we have more experience, we're at different places in our lives, we have kids now," Jen explained, "and we have to be very conscious of those things."

“We’re so protective because it is such a beautiful time for all of us,” she told the publication, adding that she and Ben consider their union to be “sacred.”

"I feel so lucky and happy and proud to be with him," the "Marry Me" actress gushed. "It's a beautiful love story that we got a second chance."

As for all the Bennifer fans out there, she sees us and she's grateful for our dedication and belief in their love even after all these years!

"It's beautiful the way it feels very different than it was years ago," she said. "There's more of an appreciation and a celebration for it, which is nice."

"When you find somebody and you really, really love them and you get a second chance at that? That is a really rare, precious, beautiful thing and we don't take it for granted."

Okay, I really hope 2022 gives us the Bennifer wedding of our dreams! We're wishing you two all the best!
