Here’s Why Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez Are the Perfect Match

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are Hollywood’s “it” couple right now, and for good reason. Besides just recently announcing a long-awaited engagement, these two have continually shown the world what real relationship goals are. But why do these two work so well? Here’s why Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are the perfect match.

They’ve learned from past relationships

Both Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have had multiple failed relationships in the past, and they’ve learned from the mistakes made. Lopez was previously married three times, to Ojani Noa, Cris Judd, and Marc Anthony respectively. She also had several high-profile relationships, including with P. Diddy and Ben Affleck. Alex Rodriguez was previously married to Cynthia Scurtis, and has dated Cameron Diaz, Kate Hudson, and Madonna.

Lopez spoke to Good Morning America on this topic, stating that she has “made plenty of mistakes in my past and … we’re mature now. We’re grown-ups and we’re going to take our time we’re going to do things at our own pace. And our life right now is incredibly wonderful. Between our kids and our work, we’re truly blessed. We don’t need anything more right now.”

In a different interview, this one with Harper’s BAZAAR, Lopez elaborated further on how she learned from her past relationships. “For me, the relationship journey has been very up and down … it was about me figuring out me. Until you learn to love yourself, you can’t completely love someone else in a way that is pure and true … There’s an evolution there that had to happen for me. I feel like I’m in a better place now.”

Lopez and Rodriguez understand each other’s busy lives

Another thing that makes these two perfect for each other is that they understand just how busy the other’s life is. Jennifer Lopez is a singer, dancer, actress, and model. Alex Rodriguez is a retired professional ball player who has tackled several other ventures in his retirement. 

The couple understands there will be days where there isn’t a lot of time for just the two of them. However, they do make every effort to not only spend time as a family with their four children but also for couple time with just the two of them.

They know the importance of the small things

Often, it’s the small things that can make or break a relationship. Apparently, this is one of the lessons JLo and A-Rod learned in their past relationships because they make every effort to show their love and affection in the small ways. 

One prime example is how Alex Rodriguez has been dubbed “the perfect Instagram boyfriend.” He shows off Lopez’s achievements and shining moments regularly. Both are very vocal on social media about how much they love one another, and how thankful they are to be in each other’s lives. 

Rodriguez even takes time out of his busy schedule to cook for Lopez. Then there is that amazingly cute moment when Jennifer Lopez was helping Alex Rodriguez with his makeup as he was getting ready for his brand new YouTube channel. The channel, by the way, offers a little sneak peek into the beautiful life these two stars share together.

The final and most important reason Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are perfect for each other is they support one another in everything they do. When Lopez went on an extreme diet that didn’t allow any carbs or sugars, Rodriguez joined in with her to show his support. They also work out together, and are constantly supporting their partner’s professional endeavors.
