Marc Anthony marrying girlfriend Shannon De Lima this month

Jennifer Lopez might be enjoying her single status, but her ex-husband Marc Anthony is apparently tying the knot for the third time. That's right, the 46-year-old singer who popped the question to his on-again, off-again Venezuelan model girlfriend, Shannon De Lima, plans on walking down the aisle again this month in the Dominican Republic. I wonder how J.Lo feels about that!

It's been a long time since Jennifer Lopez has been single. The girl didn't even give herself a break after her split from her ex-husband of nearly eight years, Marc Anthony. She finally seems confident enough in her own skin to be alone and even opened up about how emotionally abusive her relationship with Marc was in her new memoir, True Love. The girl is in a good place right now. But can she handle the fact that her ex and father of her twins Max and Emme, is getting hitched to another woman?

I always knew Marc Anthony would give marriage another shot, but I didn't actually see things working out with his girlfriend, Shannon De Lima. Sure, they've been dating for a while and yes they got engaged back in March, but considering how on-and-off they've been I just didn't see them making it down the aisle. Do they have what it takes to make a marriage work?

Who knows, but hopefully the third time's the charm for Marc. He's already had two failed marriages (each with kids). First with former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres and then with Jennifer Lopez. And I hope he's dealt with any control issues or insecurities he may have had in the past, otherwise this new marriage is doomed from the start. Look at what happened when he was with J.Lo! She felt controlled and abused mentally, emotionally and verbally. It wasn't a good situation at all and I'm glad she was able to recognize that and get out. I just hope Marc is getting married for the right reasons and not just because he doesn't want to be alone!
