Jennifer Lopez Doesn’t ‘Really Count’ First Two Marriages & Talks Latest Proposal
While speaking with People, Jennifer Lopez talks her latest proposal to fiancé Alex Rodriguez, and a bit on her first three marriages, the first two of which she doesn’t “really count,” to Ojani Noa (1997-98) and Cris Judd (2001-03), and Marc Anthony (2004-14).
Additionally, Lopez shares, “I’ve been married three times: once was nine months and once was 11 months. So I don’t really count those. I was married to Marc for 10 years with the kids. I was very young the first two times I tried to get married. I’m saying tried to get married.”
On why her first two marriages were so short, she explains, “It seems like in this life you’re always surrounded by people so you’re never lonely but it’s very lonely. So you always want somebody with you. So I felt like if I got married then I would always have somebody but that’s not how life works. That’s not how it goes, a bad reason to get married. Not the right one, the wrong one. The right one is when you find somebody who makes you better.”
Furthermore, on her impending marriage to Rodriguez, the mother of two adds, “It’s been three years now. [We’ll get married] soon, not soon-soon but next year. I’d like a big wedding, I’d like to get married in a church this time. Never been married in a church.”
