Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck announced their divorce a smooth 24 hours ago, but already the Internet is ready for them to cry a river, build a bridge, and GET OVER IT.
Onward and up, the Internet says. Or, more accurately: Go backwards! To an ex!

Twitter was sad for maybe one entire second before they realized this means Ben can get back together with Jennifer Lopez, his girlfriend-then-fiancée of two years back in 2002. Basically, #BenniferLives #BenniferUnbroken #OnceYouGoBenniferYouNeverGoBackiffer
In her memoir True Love, J.Lo *did* call Ben her "first real heartbreak." And in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in 2012, Affleck *did* say Bennifer 1.0 still keeps in touch: “There will be an e-mail saying, 'Oh, your movie looks great,'” he explained. “I respect her. I like her. She's put up with some stuff that was unfair in her life, and I'm really pleased to see her successful."

Surprisingly, there seems to be one clear motive for wanting the reconciliation:
TBH, for better or for worse, we probably do deserve a Gigli 2.

As for Jennifer, the Internet wanted to clue her in on one thing:
Michael Vartan and ex-wife, Lauren Skaar, who he met at a Whole Foods, just FYI, split last year after three years of marriage. And like evil!Francie and basically every other character on Alias who died but not really, the Internet’s love for Sydney and Vaughn lives on:
We would watch an Alias reboot. We don’t care if it’s on Netflix or IRL. #</o>
Anyway, let’s end on a flashback to happier times: Back before Ben and Jen got together and were just playfully flirting. RIP true love.
