Marc wants Jennifer back — but should she return to him knowing he’s not the right one for her?
Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez were not a right fit on both of their accounts. However, despite knowing this, the 42-year-old singer seems to have changed his mind and is now reportedly begging his soon-to-be-ex to take him back. Although she’s spoken about self love and knows he isn’t ‘the one’, should she take him back — and should you go back a guy you know isn’t completely right?
The 42-year-old singer was reportedly controlling over J. Lo and jealous of her career, but according to Us Weekly, he wants her back and is even attempting to prolong their inevitable divorce.
“[Marc’s] mood shifts from blaming her to begging her to take him back to telling her she is destroying his life,” a source close to the American Idol judge told the tabloid.
The insider added, “He’s being difficult on every little point…He wants to prolong things so she reconsiders.”
Jennifer, also 42, is reportedly “happy” and “surrounded by love” although she dislikes dealing with her ex and his mood swings. Having realized that Marc was not the right man for her, she’s decided to move on, love herself and get on with her life.
“To understand that a person is not good for you, or that the person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself — if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me. I love myself enough to walk away from that now,” J. Lo told Vanity Fair. “Sometimes we don’t realize that we are compromising ourselves.”
It takes a lot of strength and self-confidence to not take back a man you’ve loved, and to walk away from a relationship that isn’t right for you.
Although I think J. Lo is making a smart move for herself, not every situation is the same. Marc was controlling, they couldn’t stop fighting and she knew it wasn’t right.
But sometimes the easiest decision isn’t the right one. If you’ve truly been in love and miscommunication is getting in the way of your relationship feeling right, then work on it. Don’t walk away: fight.
If a guy is making you feel badly about yourself, he’s obviously not the one for you. But do assess your situation before making a final decision.
At the end of the day, if he’s making you feel more miserable than happy, then you should let him go — even if he’s begging for you to come back on his hands and knees. Just because someone wants you that badly doesn’t mean you have to want him back.
