Fans are divided by Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s public kissing in front of their children after the couple brought their kids on their honeymoon in Paris.
The 52-year-old singer and 49-year-old actor could be spotted kissing on a seat close to Elysée Palace in pictures obtained by Page Six on Friday. The pair got married last Saturday in Las Vegas, and they’re now on their honeymoon in France.
The couple wed in a secret ceremony last weekend in Las Vegas, and by the time they were on their honeymoon, they were still physically attracted to one another.
In photos shot on Thursday at the Le Matignon restaurant, Affleck’s eldest daughter Violet is seen grinning while her father and his new wife make out over dinner.
The 49-year-old Argo actor and Jennifer Garner, his ex-wife from whom he divorced in 2015, are the parents of Violet and Seraphina.
Some critics have criticized the happy couple on Facebook for not even trying to hide their love for one another in front of their respective kids.
One person wrote: “That’s very inappropriate!!”
Another added: “I think it’s just bad manners to have full-on snogs in front of anyone let alone your teenage children. Why would you want to [embarrass] them with your lack of self-control It’s just yucky.”
A third said: “I don’t think they need to pash at the dinner table. Keep it classy.”
One person added: “Nothing wrong with showing your other half love and affection in person. This is why some adults cannot recognize loving and caring relationships later on in life.”
Another commented: “Not sure it’s awkward ~ showing love in front of children should be a MUST!! The fact that some make it awkward baffles me…”
Lopez announced their nuptials in a statement in her On the JLo newsletter on Sunday (July 17), writing: “We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient.”
She continued: “Last night we flew to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world.”
The singer and actress said: “All of us want the same thing. For the world to recognize us as partners and to declare our love to the world through the ancient and nearly universal symbol of marriage.”
