On Friday, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony announced their decision to end their marriage after seven years. “This was a very difficult decision,” they told People in a joint statement.
In a May 2010 interview with The Advocate, Lopez shared her thoughts on gay marriage, making comparisons to her own marriages to Anthony and ex-husbands Ojani Noa and Cris Judd.
“I believe that when two people find each other and love each other, they should be able to spend their lives together,” Lopez said. “Especially being married now and having been divorced twice — being younger, more immature, and making those kinds of mistakes — I don’t think marriage is to be taken lightly for anybody. You have to work at it.”
The actress-singer also discussed her personal attachment to the song “This Cannot Be Love,” which was scheduled for her then-upcoming album Love? “It talks about the idea of getting lazy in love,” she said of the track, which did not ultimately make the album’s final cut. “You know how we do that? When you’re with somebody and you’re like, ‘Wait a minute — remember when we were so in love and obsessed with each other? What happened?’”
In a March 2011 Advocate.com interview, Lopez, who expressed her desire to perform on Broadway, revealed that she and Anthony were currently in discussions to work together on a musical project.
