Only a week ago, news broke that Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez were a celebrity couple…and now, after a romantic getaway to the Bahamas, they’re turning into the real deal. As reported by EOnline.com, “Jennifer and Alex are heating up big time,” a source shared with E! News exclusively. “They went from zero to 100 really quick.” Over the weekend, photographers captured the celebrity couple at the ultra-exclusive Bakers Bay Golf & Ocean Club in the Abaco Islands. On their celebrity vacation, they were spotted relaxing at a private ocean villa, where the pop star took a photo with her new man for Instagram stories. “Jennifer likes the idea of dating a man closer to her age,” the source added. “Jennifer is really into Alex but still just going with it and learning about him.”

This celebrity couple recently took things to the next level with a romantic getaway. What are three things to consider before vacationing with your partner?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s fun to daydream about a getaway with your love (especially if it’s as romantic as this celebrity vacation!), but in reality, it’s important to make sure that your relationship is stable before you take it on the road. Here are three things to consider before planning a trip with your beau:

1. You’re over the first date jitters: Vacationing as a couple is a serious step to take! You’ll be together 24/7, so there’s very little chance to make sure your lipstick is perfect and your hair is curled before he wakes up. Make sure you’re ready to show your man who you are beneath your perfect facade and warm up with a few overnight sleepovers.

2. You can handle a little stress: Let’s be honest: Traveling is stressful. Are you ready to see your partner in a cranky mood after a day full of delayed flights, lost luggage, and hot airports? Similar to showing your man who you are beneath a face full of make-up, you’ll also see who he is when obstacles get in his way.

3. You have similar vacation styles: Before you hop on that flight, talk to your significant other about your upcoming trip. Do you enjoy packing your itinerary full of outdoor activities, leaving little time for relaxing? Or do you tend to use your vacations as a chance to catch up on your reading list? Make sure you have similar expectations about your trip so you both have a good time.
