Even after three failed marriages, Jennifer Lopez still hasn’t given up on the idea on finding Mr. Right. According to People, the star told ABC News’s Amy Robach that she would give marriage another try, stating, “For me, the biggest dream is the fairy tale. I will never give up on that dream.” Lopez’s divorce from Marc Anthony last summer doesn’t seem to be keeping her from finding a new man, as she clearly has something going on with her backup dancer, Casper Smart. Lopez would not open up about her love life, but Smart says it was not love at first sight. “It was very natural how it happened,” he says. “There was nothing before. No flirting, nothing before. Just natural. It just happened.”
How do you decide whether to get married again after a divorce?
It can be difficult to believe in everlasting love after a messy split. Here are some ways to decide whether to say “I do” to your new man:
1) You’ve learned from the past: No matter how difficult the divorce was, it’s important to at least learn something from your previous marriage. Perhaps you and your ex had poor communication or disagreed on fundamental issues. If you’ve grown and feel confident that you won’t repeat the same mistakes, it may be time to try marriage again.
2) You are over your ex-husband: No matter how many times you might tell others and even yourself that you’re over him, only you truly know how you feel. If your mind is constantly bombarded with thoughts of him, hold off on another marriage.
3) You still believe: Do you still have faith that relationships can last forever if they are between the right two people? If you still trust in the power of marriage and are prepared to do the hard work that comes with keeping a relationship strong, you may be ready for another big day.
