With 20 years of history between them, J.Lo told The New York Times that she learned a lot from her relationship with Ben the first time around.
Her biggest takeaway? “To hold it sacred,” she said of their bond. “You have to do what feels good to you all the time. But at the same time, you learn from the past, you do things better the second time. There’s a part of it that, yes, we’re together.
