Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez might never get married. In an interview on Andy Cohen’s Deep and Shallow series, Lopez revealed that having to postpone their wedding twice made the couple wonder “should we?”

No, there is no trouble in paradise, but the couple was originally set to tie the knot in March in Italy, right as the country had to shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic. “In March or April, we’re looking down the pipe and we’re going, ‘This is maybe not going to happen. Italy is the worst place in the world,’” at the time due to the coronavirus, “and we’re going to get married [there]” she laughs. “I was like, ‘OK, we got to cancel everything.’ So we canceled it.”

Lopez has been married three times before, and Rodriguez has been married once. Together they share Lopez’s 12-year-old twins, Max and Emme (with Marc Anthony), and Rodriguez’s 12-year-old and 16-year-old daughters (with Cynthia Scurtis). While the intent was to reschedule for later in the year, the pandemic has reached crisis proportions in the United States. “Nope, still not the right time,” Lopez admitted. “So it was just a little disappointing. Then you just think to yourself: Well, things will happen in their divine time.”

The host asked if the two would go the Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell route, who famously have never married, despite being together for over 38 years. “With, like the Goldie and Kurt thing, you think: ‘Do you have to? Should we?’ It just kind of gave us a moment to pause and think about it. And I think it’s something that maybe is still important to us, but there’s no rush. There’s no rush. It’ll happen when it happens.”
