Jennifer Lopez hasn't given up on marriage. The Latina bombshell - who began dating choreographer Casper Smart in October 2011 shortly after her third marriage fell apart - is hopeful for a fairytale ending and will "probably" walk down the aisle with her beau in the future.
Probed as to whether she wanted to marry again, she giggled, "I don't know ... probably, maybe! I like [being married], I like the idea of it, I always have. As a girl you never really give up on that fairytale completely."
Jennifer - who has five-year-old twins Max and Emme with her third husband Marc Anthony - is so smitten with Casper, 25, that the 43-year-old singer doesn't care about their age gap and chooses to ignore the stigma about older women dating younger men: "There's more of a stigma to it, you know? But I'm not really one to follow rules or stay within a box."
The star also revealed back-up dancer Casper - who has choreographed the video for her new single "Live It Up" - is the perfect partner because the pair share a creative connection which fuels both their careers. "It's a sweet relationship. It's kind, it's healthy. He's a creative partner to me. He knows what I want to accomplish. We talk about it a lot, obviously we're together a lot. He helps me and I help him, and it kind of works that way," she explained.
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony will not have a custody battle over their twins.
The couple split last July after seven years of marriage, but they are keen to make the divorce as amicable as possible for the sake of four-year-old twins Max and Emme, as their welfare and happiness is the most important thing to them.
"The parties are working together to reach a friendly resolution that's in the best interest of their children," Jennifer's lawyer Ron Anteau told People.
Sources also say Marc doesn't want any financial support from Jennifer, who is now dating dancer Casper Smart. "He's not seeking financial support from her in this divorce. This is about trying to figure out how best for two very busy parents to share their children," one insider said.
Earlier this month, Marc filed for divorce from Jennifer, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split.
Marc Anthony has filed for divorce from Jennifer Lopez. The former couple - who have four-year-old twins Max and Emme - separated after seven-years of marriage last July. Now Marc, 43, has started proceedings to officially end the union, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason behind the split.
People Magazine reports that in papers filed at Los Angeles Supreme Court on Monday, the musician asks for joint legal and physical custody of the children, and for spousal support to be denied if Jennifer, 42, asks for it.
Since parting ways, the pair have remained friends and continue to work together on reality show Q'Viva! The Chosen. However, Jennifer - who has now moved on with 24-year-old dancer Casper Smart - admits the break-up has been a painful process:
"Without going into detail ... it's just really, really sad. And look, we are still going through it, and it's emotional sometimes and difficult. We're still friends - and we're parents. But it's going to take time. It's tough. But for the most part, I feel very proud of the way we're handling it. I really do. We are doing the best we can for the kids."
Well, it definitely lasted longer than anyone could have guessed: Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have split after seven years of marriage.
The couple - who have three-year-old twins, Max and Emme, together - have decided to call time on their relationship after they both agreed on the "difficult decision."
In a statement released to People magazine, Jennifer and Marc - who wed in June 2004 - said, "We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision. We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters. It is a painful time for all involved and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time."
Was she speaking too soon when she said that divorce was never an option four years into her third marriage?
-Actress Joanna Garcia has caught herself a New York Yankee. The Privileged star is now engaged to baseball player Nick Swisher.
-Speaking of weddings, that’s exactly what CW’s Jensen Ackles and Danneel Harris had on May 16. The Supernatural actor and One Tree Hill actress had been dating for three years.
-Marriage isn’t in the near future for singer Crystal Bowersox. The American Idol contestant and boyfriend Tony Kusian broke up hours before the season finale.
-The relationship may also be over for Common and Serena Williams. The musician/actor and tennis star were supposedly just too busy for each other.

Although the word “hot” is often used to describe Jennifer Lopez, it’s not a word commonly used for Marc Anthony—that is, until now.
The action might have been on the gridiron during the Miami Dolphins/New Orleans Saints game yesterday, but you wouldn’t have known that by looking at the singer’s armpits.
Maybe someone should have rethought the whole black pants in the heat decision?

Jennifer Lopez is scared of the dark—apparently divas can fear something, after all.
The “Get Right” singer admitted that she makes her husband Marc Anthony wait until she’s asleep before he is allowed to turn off the lights.
The 40-year-old star, who is renowned for her diva behavior, explained: “I like the quiet, but I don’t like the dark. We have everything on dimmers so I kind of trick myself into the darkness. Marc always turns off the lights after he comes to bed. I’m usually sleeping—or he waits till I fall asleep and then turns them off.”
Jennifer and Marc have been married for five years and the star is the first to admit their relationship, like any, “takes work.” To help keep the spark alive, Jennifer reads books about successful marriages and relationships.
“I’m constantly trying to figure love out. It’s the never-ending question—what is the key to love? I’m old enough to know now that relationships take work. That’s it’s not an easy thing,” the actress-turned-singer said.
Although it was rumored Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony would be over come February 14, the couple appeared to be quite happy this past Saturday.
Jennifer, who was attending Marc’s Madison Square Garden concert, eventually wound up on stage with her husband. Helping to complete the family photo were their two babes, Max and Emme. (The twins celebrate their first birthday on February 22nd.)
Had the earlier reports been true, this would have been J.Lo’s second Valentine’s Day split. Sean Combs officially announced his break up from Lopez back on February 14, 2001.

Is Jennifer Lopez heading toward her third divorce?
According to a new report, the 4 1/2 year marriage between Lopez and Marc Anthony could be coming to a close. This news comes after weeks of speculation about their relationship.
Rumors about possible trouble kicked into high gear after Jennifer’s appearance at The Curious Case of Benjamin Button premiere. Not only was Marc not there - the ringless singer was in Las Vegas doing a little partying of his own - neither was her wedding ring. (This may explain why she looked particularly hot that night. Hoping to make somebody jealous?)
