The actual fact was not seen (or made much less noise than anticipated) on the time the information appeared that the actress and singer Jennifer Lopez mentioned sure to the star Ben Affleck.

The 2 bought married on July 16, in a final minute ceremony in Las Vegas, with only some folks as witnesses. By making the marriage public, via a publication (KwiJLo) addressed to registered followers, Jennifer Lopez not solely revealed the main points of the occasion of her desires, however launched one thing new on the finish of the message. He mentioned goodbye with the next quote: “love is a superb factor, possibly the perfect factor, and it is value ready for”. He concluded: “Love, Jennifer Lynn Affleck.

On Tuesday (02/08), within the picture of the couple’s marriage certificates, which has been circulating world wide, affirmation has come. After the marriage, J.Lo formally grew to become Mrs. Affleck. It was an previous need, as revealed in an interview performed 20 years in the past, throughout the first engagement with the actor. However that marriage ended, they each married different folks and had youngsters. They may meet once more in the midst of the plague, single once more.

However what makes a lady like her, who has labored exhausting to determine herself as a gifted singer, who can sing, dance and interpret (maybe even be nominated for an Oscar), who creates a robust feminine picture, need to cease. First identify? Is it a proof of affection or an act of submissiveness, which provides rise to historic concepts {that a} girl, as soon as married, belongs to a person?

It appears unbelievable, however till 2002, there was nonetheless a regulation in Brazil, which stipulated that the husband can dissolve the wedding and return the spouse to the household, if he finds out that she is now not a virgin. This was within the Civil Code of 1916 and handled married ladies as incompetent. Girls couldn’t open a checking account, inherit or work with out their husbands’ permission, necessities that eased within the Nineteen Sixties.

Till March of this yr, Congress was debating the necessity for spousal authorization within the case of a married girl voluntarily having a tubal ligation. And as if that was not sufficient, till just lately, some well being plans required the consent of husbands to have an IUD (Intra Uterine Gadget) positioned of their companions, an unlawful act, however one which exhibits how patriarchal concepts exist to assault. we.

For the reason that new Civil Code got here into drive in 2002, adoption of a partner’s surname is feasible for each women and men. However what number of males in your circle of pals have carried out that? I feel Ben Affleck, as a lot as he likes, did not assume he was Ben Lopez.

With the top of the obligations introduced by the brand new Code, many Brazilian ladies categorical that they aren’t very glad about altering their identify after they get married. In line with a examine by Arpen-SP, a corporation linked to e-book writers, within the final twenty years, the variety of ladies who’ve adopted their partner’s surname has decreased by 25% within the state of São Paulo.

Every thing exhibits that the extra mature a lady is, the extra skilled she is, the extra she has a nostril, the much less she is considering carrying her accomplice’s final identify. At the moment, ladies are getting married later than a century in the past. Maybe that is the important thing to understanding the autumn.

It’s comprehensible that, within the case of girls who will not be related with their households of origin, their lives have been characterised by abusive conditions, altering their identify could be a option to depart the previous searching for a brand new story.

JLo revealed within the documentary Halftime (Netflix, 2020) that her mom was a strict particular person. The connection between the 2 was not straightforward, however he understood the the reason why the matriarch raised her youngsters in a strict manner. It was a matter of survival. Jennifer is the daughter of Puerto Ricans, she was born and raised within the Bronx, New York Metropolis.

His roots appear to be a supply of pleasure for him. On the Superbowl halftime present, in 2020, the place he shared the stage with Shakira from Colombia, J.Lo made some extent of showing on stage with a kind of gown the place, then again, he had the flag of america. However when he opened his arms, inside, you would see the flag of Puerto Rico. The show of the flag can be a criticism of the Trump administration, which has separated greater than 500 youngsters from their undocumented mother and father and positioned them in cages in detention facilities.

The identify we stock is a part of who we’re, our background, our identification. However most ladies all through the West appear prepared to sacrifice for the sake of their husbands. As if, with this act, ladies make a bond of union of life.

To be glad endlessly after is the said need of the pop star at this second in his life, maybe pushed by the various love tales, legends of contemporary life which have performed a serious function on the screens. Irresistible Ardour (1998), The Wedding ceremony of My Goals (2001), Encontro de Amor (2002), Casa Comigo (2022), in all these motion pictures J.Lo’s character meets the person of her life and happiness is saved endlessly. Off display, he appears to be aiming for a similar end result.
