Jennifer Aniston & Justin Theroux Avoid Marriage by Celebrating This Instead

Jennifer AnistonJennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are finally going through one of those periods where the rumblings about their relationship have been silenced, and everyone agrees they are together with no hint of a breakup. It helps that the two have been appearing together again after Justin got done filming The Leftovers in New York. And you can't deny how happy they look next to each other. In fact, they are so happy that the pair just reportedly jetted off to Bora Bora to celebrate their two-year engagement. Wait a sec, celebrate the anniversary of their engagement?!

A source told People magazine:

It [was] a romantic trip to celebrate their engagement anniversary and Justin's birthday. It's their first vacation together in Bora Bora and they were excited about the trip.

Erm, okay, I get celebrating Justin's 43rd birthday (happy birthday, JT!), but celebrating the anniversary of their engagement? Shouldn't they be celebrating, I dunno, their wedding anniversary?

Look, I'm not knocking long engagements. I was engaged for 10 years! But it's a little tiring when people who are engaged try to get all the perks of being married. There is no such thing as an engagementversary! No, I'm not sending you a gift. No, I'm not congratulating you on Facebook (again!).

Every year you celebrate your engagement is another year that everyone wonders why the hell you got engaged if you don't want to get married. Heh.

And yes, I was perennially engaged, so I have no doubt that being engaged can feel as committed as being married -- with slightly more common sense thrown in (let's face it, it's much easier to kick each other to the curb when you're engaged than married, which can come in handy if, oh, say, you find out your fiance is, I dunno, gay or something).

But there will be no engagementversaries, people. That means you too, Jen and Justin.
