47-year-old Latina superstar Jennifer Lopez says that she prefers ex-husband Marc Anthony post-divorce! Their divorce…not Marc’s most recent divorce from wife Shannon De Lima, 28 😉 😉 Interesting timing J-LO!
Lopez says that even though their 2004 wedding was picture-perfect – she was hot on the heels of her previous divorce from 44-year-old Ben Affleck, and had to survive in an unhealthy situation for seven whole years! She spoke to a source recently about her ‘rebound-marriage’ to Marc, 48, saying: “I hung in there for seven years. I knew very quickly that it wasn’t the right thing When my marriage ended, it was not easy to find forgiveness. It wasn’t the dream that I had hoped for, and it would have been easier to fan the flames of resentment, disappointment, and anger.”
The ‘I’m Real’ singer added: “But Marc is the father of my children, and that’s never going away. So, I have to work to make things right. And that is, by far, the hardest work I do. What people don’t talk about, which is interesting to me, is how you have to put as much work into your relationships as you do into anything else. We put so much into our careers, and I’m all for that, but there’s also a lot of work that goes into making a successful partnership and marriage. It’s not easy, and anybody who’s successful at it deserves a pat on the back. You’ve got to grow with each other; you’ve gotta bend over backwards for each other. It’s a lot of stuff. Women have to find a balance where you can stand on your own so you don’t lose your individual power. I can’t just become ‘us,’ and I think women do that a lot—become his wife, his girlfriend.”
