Sources close to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez have shed light on the challenges the couple faces in their marriage, attributing much of the tension to their contrasting outlooks on fame. 

According to reports from PEOPLE, the Hollywood stars, who tied the knot in 2022 following a rekindled romance after two decades, are currently residing separately in Los Angeles amidst ongoing strain in their relationship.

While recent photographs captured them smiling together, and they continue to wear their wedding rings in public, insiders indicate that underlying conflicts persist. 

"They just have very different approaches when it comes to media attention. Ben hates all attention and it makes him very uncomfortable. Jennifer has always had a different approach," one source explained.

Another source from the film industry highlighted his admiration for Lopez's work ethic and accomplishments but noted that his discomfort with constant media scrutiny contrasts with her openness. 

Despite their differences, the couple remains committed to navigating their marital challenges together.

Insiders close to the couple shed further light on the challenges in their marriage, attributing much of the strain to their divergent approaches to fame and public expression. 

According to sources, while Affleck admires Lopez's openness with her fans and the world, it nonetheless causes stress and discomfort in his life.

"Even though he admires that about her, it doesn’t make him happy and causes stress in his life and then in hers. 

There is no question their different styles clash," remarked one source familiar with the situation. 

Another source from the music world echoed this sentiment, highlighting Lopez's need for expression and Affleck's discomfort with it.

"After a while it causes tension in the relationship," noted the source. "He is more introspective and private. 

She likes to open her heart to her fans and to the world. This makes them considerably different, and it has been difficult in the day-to-day relationship."

Despite these challenges, sources affirm that their love persists. "There have always been clashes in their styles, how they handle issues, and their actions, but nothing has stopped their love over the years," shared a source close to the couple. 

"This is a great love story."
