Jennifer Lopez still believes in marriage.

The 'Booty' hitmaker - who has been divorced three times and recently split from her 27-year-old boyfriend Casper Smart after two-and-a-half-years together - hasn't given up on love and would love to walk down the aisle again in the future.

The 44-year-old star said: ''I have been married before, I have tried to be married before. It's not the easiest thing in the world, but at the same time I do believe in it. I believe in the institution, I believe in committing to someone and spending the rest of your life with them.''

She also told New York City radio station Hot 97's morning show: ''I'm a romantic at heart, at the end of the day I believe that there's one person that you're going to spend your life with and you have to find that person. I've tried it with certain people and for whatever reasons that are personal it just didn't work out and that's a sad thing.''

The singer - who has six-year-old twins, Max and Emme, with third ex-husband Marc Anthony - enjoyed a ''very flirty'' night out with 'Dancing with the Stars' performer Maksim Chmerkovskiy, 34, in Ledyard, Connecticut on Saturday night (21.06.14), despite recently insisting they were just close friends.
