The star of the movie “Marry Me,” who is now 53 years old, revealed the private specifics of her extravagant Georgia wedding to Ben Affleck, who is now 50 years old, and she also disclosed that the “wounds” that were caused when the couple split up in 2004 had finally been healed.
She freely stated that a very particular song was the driving force behind everything that happened.
“Ben and I talked about Marc Cohn’s ‘True Companion’ as the ultimate wedding love song in this same house more than twenty years ago,” she wrote, describing the lovely day she eventually walked down the aisle, escorted by their five children who were blended across two families.
Even though Ben wasn’t aware of it, I requested Marc to surprise him by singing it at our wedding, and he was both kind and kind enough to come.
She went on to say, “However, when I came down the aisle, the first song he played was not ‘True Companion.’
It was his song titled “The Things We’ve Handed Down,” which is about the lovely mystery of children.
This was something that we could only speculate about at the time, but the music was the ideal selection for the occasion because our five children walked ahead of me on the path.
“The twenty years that passed between those dreams of youth and the adult world of love and family that we embraced that day brought more to this marriage than either of us ever could have imagined,” she wrote in part, adding that everything appeared to come “full circle” as Marc eventually did play “True Companion.”
Jen continued the reminiscence by elaborating on the ways in which things had evolved over the course of their relationship, despite the fact that their love had unquestionably persisted.
“Later Ben told me that the chords of the song and seeing Marc Cohn both shocked him and allowed him to feel the way both roads we had walked found their way, inevitably, inexorably, and perfectly together,” she tenderly recalled.

“And when he saw me appear at the top of the stairs that moment, it made absolute sense while still seeming impossibly hard to believe.”
When I got close enough to see his face, it made the same beautiful sense to me as it had when I first heard him say it.

If I hadn’t been concentrating so intently on keeping my balance while trying not to trip over my dress, I’m sure I would have had many of the same thoughts.
On that particular day, some of our older wounds were successfully treated, and we were finally able to cast the burden of the past off of our shoulders.
Completeness, despite the fact that this did not at all turn out the way we had expected. Better.”
