Now that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have announced their plans to end their seven-year marriage, insiders are recalling signs that may have indicated that the couple was having problems.
Us Weekly reports that Anthony wanted to select Lopez's wardrobe last year during a photo shoot for her Style Icon Of The Decade spread.

Anthony urged the magazine not to use a photo of Lopez he considered to be "too sexy and unbecoming for a 40-year-old mother of two," an unnamed source told Us.

"He would make her feel terrible about herself if she wanted to wear something sexy," added another source. "He likes her to dress in a demure, ‘wife' style. He hated the fact that she was a sex symbol."

Marc was described as generally being "very dominating" by yet another insider. "He wants to control everything Jennifer does."

A spokesperson for Anthony did not respond to Yahoo! by press time.

On July 2 -- 13 days before Lopez and Anthony released a statement about their impending divorce -- Lopez appeared on HSN to promote her new fragrance, Love And Light.

TV Guide made a montage of video clips of Lopez discussing love and relationships -- including Anthony -- during her network visit.
When commenting about the couple's chemistry during their performance on the "American Idol" finale, the HSN host Diana Perkovic described the pair as "in love." Lopez responded with a polite correction, "Yes, we do love each other."
Lopez told Perkovic the concept of her 2010 perfume, Love And Glamour, was about "love and your relationship and your glamorous life, and everything sorta outside of you."

Lopez said Love And Light takes a different focus. "I wanted to go to the core of who you are and what is really inside you," she said.

In a separate interview with HSN's Colleen Lopez, the entertainment mogul said, "Really the most important relationship that you have is with yourself. Life is really about change. And sometimes that can be scary. But the truth is, you have to do that. You have to push yourself so you can breakthrough your own boundaries and try new things and do new things."

People magazine reported that Lopez and Anthony made their last public appearance together on June 7 at the Samsung Hope For Children Gala in New York.

Anthony did not join Lopez when she met the royal couple Prince William, Duke Of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess Of Cambridge, on July 9. Lopez's mother, Guadalupe, joined her instead.
