Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are emerging as a new celebrity couple. The two have been moving rather quickly on the path to a serious relationship. What started out earlier this month as a fling, turned into a romantic getaway, and has now progressed into a celebrity relationship. According to EOnline.com, friends of the retired New York Yankee said this relationship is turning out to be more serious than originally expected. “Friends are slowly thinking this may actually be a great match. He calls J.Lo his lady. He would wife her up in a heartbeat…She is different than other people he’s dated.” Sources describe the couple as having a “crazy connection” and are “always all over each other when they are out.” Despite their busy schedules, J.Lo and A.Rod have been spending a lot of time with each other in Miami by working out together and going out to dinner. Lopez, 47, has been in Miami working on her Spanish album. She still finds time to support 41-year-old Rodriguez as a special instructor for the New York Yankees. One factor that appears to make this couple a “great match” is their similarity in age.

It looks like this new celebrity couple may have staying power! What are some ways to ensure your relationship is stable and long-lasting?
