Jennifer Lopez is on vacation in Italy without husband Ben Affleck.

"They seem to have spent a lot more time apart recently, with Ben even moving out of their shared home and back into his own place," she explained to a news outlet. "This suggests that there may be some underlying issues or conflicts in their relationship that they are trying to work through."

"It’s possible that Jennifer’s trip to Italy is allowing her some time and space to reflect on her marriage and what she wants for her future," Alderson continued. "She is a strategic and independent woman, so it's likely that she is considering her options and needs some time alone to make decisions about her next steps."

Affleck, 51, staying behind in Los Angeles may mean they're "focusing on their own separate lives for the time being."

However, the expert believes the distance could actually be good for the stars, as it "allows for individual growth and self-reflection, which can ultimately benefit the relationship in the long run."

She added, "When you're apart, you have the opportunity to miss each other and appreciate your time together even more."
