Another celebrity marriage has gone by the wayside. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are no more. Now that the media hubub has died down, there are certain things we might be able to learn and apply for our marriages. You would think that after a while, there wouldn't be anything we could learn from a celebrity divorce. But its not true. I think we can always learn something, so we don't have to repeat mistakes of others! Not that I wish harm on anyone or any relationship - that isn't the case at all. Just that when bad things do happen, we can observe, learn, and try not to let things creep into our own relationships that might be problematic.
A broken relationship is always sad, but sometimes the failure seems almost inevitable. Was anyone really surprised when Charlie Sheen's remaining "goddess" left him? Or when Britney finally dumped K-Fed? Marc Anthony and J.Lo's recent split has experts cluck-clucking about how they've been predicted the breakup for years. Just look at that body language! Her relationship track record! And how about those blind items?
Just days after announcing their divorce after seven years of marriage, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are shocking people a second time. The pair announced their plans to go forward working together on the Latin reality talent show, Q'Viva!, even though their personal life is in shambles. Does this have the potential to be totally awkward yet pull in ratings like crazy? Oh, we're sure.
If Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's recent announcement that they are planning to divorce after seven years of marriage came as a surprise to you, you're not alone. Only a few weeks ago, J.Lo gave an interview to Latina Magazine, gushing about how she and Marc "love each other, more than anything." "Marc and I really do understand each other. We know each other's hopes and dreams, we know each other's strengths, we also know each other's weaknesses, so in a way, we're the best gauge of how we can be the best in everything that we do," she said to the magazine, reports HollywoodLife.com. That doesn't exactly sound like a woman on the brink of a divorce, does it? However, perhaps, Jennifer didn't know about all of Marc's weaknesses.
After seven years of marriage, the love is over for Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony. "We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision. We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters," read the simple statement that the Latin power couple released. "It is a painful time for all involved and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time."
Everything that rises must fall, or so they say. It seems that that sentiment is true of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's relationship, er, we mean….finances? Back in the day when Jenny was On The 6, dating Puff Daddy (now P.Diddy) and Ben Affleck no one would have guessed that she would have financial woes anytime soon. Fast forward ten years, Jennifer has two adorable children, Max and Emme, she's married to Latin singer Marc Anthony and she's judging American Idol? Sounds like she's more on the path of retirement.
Wedding anniversaries are generally low-key, intimate affairs, but not in the case of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. The couple, whose marriage many people thought wouldn't last more than 12 months, has now been married for six years and decided to celebrate their anniversary recently by inviting all of their celebrity friends over and showing off their blinged-out California home.
We'd like to extend our congratulations to longtime loves Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen, who topped off their eight-year relationship with a private Paris wedding last week. Here now are ten other couples who snuck off for "no fuss" weddings, much to the chagrin of the paparazzi: Sandra Bullock & Jesse James, Julia Roberts & Danny Moder, Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner, Beyonce & Jay-Z, Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony...
Tucking your tail between your legs and saying sorry is not an easy thing to do, but when we're wrong, we're wrong. We'd like to apologize to Madonna and Guy Ritchie for jumping the gun on their divorce settlement, to Katy Perry for false reporting her engagement, to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie for thinking about mentioning their prenup, to Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez for mentioning that they may break up and to Tom Cruise for all the weird rumors. Sorry all.
They say fourth time's a charm for always-a-bride Jennifer Lopez. Her former husbands Ojani Noa (one) and Cris Judd (two) would know. Jenny's current husband Marc Anthony can now claim third and fourth place, since the couple renewed their vows last weekend, according to "People" magazine. JLo clearly takes the cake for most marriages, but Marc, serial vow-renewer, seems to be breaking records himself. He and his first wife of four years, former Miss Universe Dayanara Delgado, also renewed their wedding vows in December of 2002. Their divorce was soon to follow in 2004. Four days after it was finalized, Jen and Marc were married in a secret wedding.
