Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez have been together for over a year. They've become quite the beloved couple in the public eye, serving relationship goals consistently on and offline. Alex Rodriguez recently opened up about their romance. According to the athlete, he and Jlo would not have been able to make their relationship work if they had met when they were younger.

"To be honest, if this happened when we were in our 20s, it would have never happened … It was just too much craziness. I wasn’t mature enough. You know, boys, we got to get our dumbness out of the way."

Their similar life experience made for a strong bond between the two. Their heritage, their hood, and even their mixed families made their union easy.

“We’re in our forties. We’re both from New York. We both come from Latina backgrounds. We both have two kids. I think we’ve both been through a lot and can really appreciate each other — both the good and the challenges” 

Their families do seem to mix well, indeed. Although the Arod/Jlo relationship seems to be going well, the couple doesn't seem to be rushing towards a wedding any time soon. They're enjoying their current situation to the fullest.
