JENNIFER LOPEZ is convinced her relationship with MARC ANTHONY will stand the test of time - because she has learned from the mistakes she made in her previous marriages.
The actress/singer first walked down the aisle with Cuban-born waiter Ojani Noa in 1997. They divorced after just a year of marriage and she went on to wed dancer Chris Judd in 2001 but that union also ended in divorce.
Lopez married Latin singer Anthony in 2004 and they are now parents to baby twins Max and Emme.
The 40 year old insists it takes a lot of effort to make the union work - but she's adamant her two failed marriages have helped her discover just how to keep her relationship with Anthony on track.
She tells InStyle magazine, "I'm still figuring it out as I go along. How do two totally different people come together and make one life and say they'll do it forever and ever? I mean, I've tried it. This is my third time.
"I don't even think I tried in my other marriages, which was immature and not knowing better. I believe that in life you learn through experience. I'm old enough to know now that relationships take work. That it's not an easy thing."
