Here’s Why J-Lo Isn’t In A Rush To Marry Alex Rodriguez
Jennifer Lopez is an iconic Latino actress and singer. We have seen her since we were little yet she hasn’t aged one bit. And we don’t just mean how she looks. Even her heart hasn’t aged one bit. We say that because she’s currently engaged to retired basketball player, Alex Rodriguez.
The couple first met at a Yankees basketball game. This was when Jennifer was still married to her now ex-husband and the father of her children, Marc Anthony. And even before this, Alex had met pop sensation Jennifer Lopez and had asked for her autograph that he still cherishes to this day.
12 years later they meet again and turn their fan-celebrity acquaintance into a full-blown romance. And it took two years only for Alex to pop the question. And when he did, J-Lo couldn’t help but say yes. (Also, would you look at the size of that diamond!)
However, their engagement happened in March 2019 and it’s been a year. Yet there seem to be no wedding plans for the two. Do we smell trouble in paradise?
J-Lo Doesn’t Feel The Need To Rush Marriage
No, there is nothing wrong. The two are as in love as they’ve ever been.
Recently, the 50-year-old Hustlers star sat down with Oprah during her 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus Tour in Los Angeles and opened up about her special relationship with the former basketball star, Alex Rodriguez.
J-Lo revealed they’re in no rush to get married since both of them are quite clear about the fact that they’re in it for the long haul. They have forever to get married, what’s the rush?
“It’s so funny because when we first got engaged I was like, ‘Ooooh, we’re gonna get married in a couple months?’ Your old thinking comes right back, all that hopeless romantic stuff that made me get married three times,” she shared.
J-Lo also revealed that Alex had given her full freedom over what she wanted to do. He had also made it clear that he wasn’t going anywhere. She added, “If we’re really going to try to build something together that we both never had or both never felt like we had—which was a family with a husband and a wife, and a mother and a father—and we embrace all of our children and we show them something that we didn’t have.”

2019… it’s the last day of a decade… wow… when I think back to 2010… and think of all the things that happened between now and then I smile softly and contently on the inside… because even though some of the tougher moments popped into my head first, I realize I survived them all and they led me into the best time of my life so far. I honestly wouldn’t change a thing…I feel stronger and more at peace with who I am now than I ever have… I hope that you all can look back in the same way and enjoy every moment of your journey. Savor it, enjoy it!!!! It’s the 20’s. Get ready to roar!!! And laugh and dance and live live live! ♥️♥️♥️ #limitless #happynewyear link in my bio for the full video!
Is Alex Rodriguez ‘The One’ For J-Lo?
The famous popstar thinks Alex Rodriguez is different than any man she’s dated because of his consistency. What he says, he does every time and that’s what Jenny loves about him.
“And that is big. He wants to build together, which I’ve never had. I never had anybody who wants to see me shine and grow and be,” she continued.
And there’s a hint y’all. If you want J-Lo to notice you, all you gotta be is consistent. Although I truly believe that ship has sailed now.
