Married life is over for Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony.

The Latino power couple, who tied the knot seven years ago and have two children together, announced on Friday afternoon that they plan on divorcing. The couple told People exclusively:

"We have decided to end our marriage ... This was a very difficult decision. We have come to amicable conclusions on all matters ... It is a painful time for all involved and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time."
The split comes as a surprise to many, especially as they two had several joint projects in the works. In fact, Latino magazine conducted an interview just a few weeks ago in which J.Lo said they were "a good combination." 

Lopez and Anthony are the parents of twins Max and Emme, who are 3 years old. They gave no indication of what their plans are for custody of the children.

After much speculation of a possible baby on board in 2008 -- and after dodging several questions during interviews -- Lopez confirmed that she was expecting during a concert in Miami.

Lopez has seen a career resurgence of late, having taken on the role of American Idol judge this past season, which in turn kick-started her music career back up. While there has been speculation as to whether she'll return to Idol for another season, this news will likely play a major part in her decision. Still, there's no doubting Lopez re-established herself as a major pop artist, thanks in part to smash hits like "On the Floor."

As for Anthony, he has remained private through much of the couple's marriage, continuing his wildly successful recording career as well.

Sadly, this also means that another Marc and J.Lo collaboration. Our friends at Idolator have complied their top five musical performances; we picked our fave, their "Por Arriesgarnos" duet, below. See the rest over at Idolator

    this isnt particularly to only you just all the ignorant comments for the both of them in general maybe when all u bloggers actually grow up and go through life experiences then u may understand that we are all only human how many times will we fall in love how many times will we grow out of it how many times will we think we r positive and absolute in our desisions and find out later we where wrong life happens one thing yu can always count on is change why ridicule it when u should embrace it

    Negativity only says one thing about the speaker and that is insecurity. When you said Perv were you looking in the mirror?

    For all you HATTERZ!!! Must I say that your comments are very immature as I also notice many don't know anything about talent! Both Jennifer & Marc and very talented beautiful individuals who lost each other in the world of hard work and fame. Where there was fire ashes will always remain. Meaning: a love like theirs will never end!!! The love is in their eyes & till death do them part.

    The divorce is sad yes, and then a divorce with children even sadder. But... I believe Jlo married for the wrong reasons. She is not selfish, she's just doesn't use common sense and her head is in the clouds. My advice to her is don't marry anyone knowing that they are different than you. I'm sorry guys, but them being into music and of the same race doesn't make them compatible. She doesn't drink, she doesn't smoke and she's not as high strung as he is. Marc Anthony has a tendency to be controlling. Jennifer probably thought(And I say probably because I can't read minds) that being married to him would eventually change him. I had a feeling they wouldn't stay together because she's her own person and independent. I think she just couldn't take it anymore. Now on the children. Stay together for the sake of the children? Really? People did that years ago and were miserable until their children we're gone and boom divorce came in. And then those children got into marriages that were just as sad and distructive as their parent's marriages because they learned that from them. I would rather see a child with two happily divorced parents who get along than a child with two miserable married parents who are fighting constantly. All in all. Bottom line. Jlo has to make the wrong choices when it comes to men and find someone more compatible with her.

    I also agree.If you have nothing nice to say then don't say anything at all,cause thats Jennifer and Marc's doings so we should just respect that and leave it how it is.

    I agree 100%, I think it is terrible the way people talk about someone they no nothing about other than what they hear. Then spread it all over the internet for the world to see, hear and think about. These are two lives that are working through differences just like everyone but they are being talked about like they have commited a crime. Then to call them names like sceletor and perv, etc its just not right at all.

    We all need to mind our comments..they have a family just like you. Someone's feelings could get hurt behind some of the nonsense people post....We don't know them personally so why are we making comments as if we do? Read what u like but keep your negative comments to your self!

    I totally agree with you, I think she is the problem but then again that is karma...you can not build happiness for yourself by breaking up a marriage, because she did break up his marriage to Dayanara, ex Miss Universe!

    How pathetic! Can't this woman figure out what she wants in a man? Now she's managed to bring two little angels into the world, only to subject them to a broken home. It seems to me that J-Lo is a very selfish person....the failure of this marriage is no surprise....I was just hoping for the sake of the innocent children that she had decided to stay with the guy and create a family for her children. For most people, the first failed marriage is a mistake gone wrong, a second failed marriage I have heard is a sign that you should look at yourself for your failings....now, tsk tsk....she has a third! How disgraceful.

    This is sad. They really looked great together. I, for one, thought it would work out. However, Jennifer tends to get bored easily. Say what you want about Mark Anthony's height,he's got a great voice, and I love to hear him sing. I wonder if they even worked at trying to work things out.

    For the record retards, Marc Anthony is MUCH more respected in the Latin community. He has been famous for wayyy longer than she has, and has sold more records than her. He ACTUALLY has talent!

    Did Jenny from the block tasted blood? Or could it be that Mr. J-Lo can't have a wive who's more successful then himself. What a pity!
