Why Jennifer Lopez had reservations about getting married to Alex Rodriguez

Jennifer Lopez wasn’t so sure about taking a trip down the aisle with Alex Rodriguez. The 49-year-old got candid about the initial doubts she had about getting married to her baseball beau. “I was very wary after everything I've been through," the El Anillio singer said during a Sirus XM radio appearance. "I was just sussing it out until then. I was like, 'I don't know, maybe yes, maybe no, I really love [Alex], I like him.' Everything seemed almost too perfect too soon, so I was like, 'Wait, what's happening?' Jennifer, who has been married three times, had her qualms but was reassured when she felt 100 percent ready.

“I think it was the right time -- we knew," the World of Dance judge said. "It's great to have a best friend and a partner you can really build with, and I just feel like, with Alex and I, that's what it's like. We're very similar ... it's one of those things, you meet a like-minded person who is trying to be the best person they can be and always trying to grow, and then they help you grow and you help them grow. I'm better here, he's better there and we're better together."
