If you’ve ever been curious as to why Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez’s relationship is so strong, you’ll need to look to the artist herself.

The singer has shared the real secret behind her successful relationship.

“For me, the relationship journey has been very up and down. But it didn’t have to do with anybody else but me—it was about me figuring out me," Lopez said, citing self-love as the first step to a happy relationship.

She added, "until you learn to love yourself, you can’t completely love [someone else] in a way that is pure and true. Once you do that, you can have relationships that are based on love and respect, that are supportive and nourishing. There’s an evolution there that had to happen for me. I feel like I’m in a better place now.”
