Jennifer Lopez has her heart set on getting married to her boyfriend Ben Affleck, it is claimed.
The pop superstar started dating the Hollywood legend earlier this year after splitting with ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez amid claims he cheated on her, which he strongly denies.
Earlier this week rumours circulated that the pair, who first became engaged almost two decades ago before splitting in 2004, were planning on moving in together, US Weekly reports.
Now it is being claimed Jen has her eye on getting even more serious with the actor as she thinks it will give her financial security.
A source told Heat magazine: "Jen wants to be a married woman again. She got close to making it happen with her ex-fiance Alex Rodriguez but then completely lost trust in that relationship amidst the cheating rumours.

They said Jen is "incredibly savvy when it comes to her money" and "there's no way she's putting any of that at risk".
The source went on to say: "She's been very open with Ben about the fact that if they do get married, then she will have a watertight prenup drawn up to protect her $400million empire."
They added some of JLo's pals think "she's mad for trying to get Ben down the aisle" – but that she she "truly believes" they're meant to be together and "fate" has brought them back together.

But according to a source Ben is not keen about marrying again.
They said: "Ben is a proud person and has his own wealth, so he is a little put out by the power dynamic in play", adding: "the truth is he's not keen on marrying again".
The source went on to say Ben knows that marrying is important to Jen and he "doesn't want to lose her", adding: "he's going along with their marriage talks – but anything to do with the pre-nup is a turn off for him".
The pair were emailing each other back in February while JLo was filming in the Dominican Republic, before they were later seen publicly in the first week of May in LA – just two weeks after she called off her engagement to Alex.
