Jennifer Aniston Might Let Money Ruin Her Second Marriage Before It Starts

jennifer anistonJennifer Aniston may be headed for heartbreak all over again. She hasn't always been lucky in the romance department. Her marriage to Brad Pitt famously crashed and burned after he fell for his Mr. and Mrs. Smith costar Angelina Jolie. However, we fans had hoped she'd found The One in fiance Justin Theroux. But if the latest reports are to be believed, Jen is sabotaging her own relationship and it's a mistake many other women have made.

Like many couples, Jennifer and her husband-to-be don't see eye-to-eye on one very important topic: money. Apparently, she loves to treat herself to lavish, high-priced shopping sprees, while he is more practical with money. Sources have told Globe magazine that she dropped as much as $15,000 on a summer wardrobe and never even wore many of the pricey new fashions -- something the more frugal Justin just can't understand.

Jen also reportedly has a penchant for going on these sprees when she is down or had a bad day. So many women can relate to that one. Of course, we don't walk in the door with a $5,000 skirt, but all those pairs of shoes, makeup, and pieces of jewelry can add up. That momentary emotional surge we get from retail therapy is not worth the long-term damage we may be doing to our bank accounts, credit scores, and ultimately our relationships.

The stress of postponing their wedding certainly hasn't helped matters. She's supposedly hitting the stores even more. And knowing how Justin disapproves, she has started hiding her purchases. A big, big no-no and one so many of us are guilty of.

Conflicts about money can destroy any relationship -- even those among the rich. It boils down to trust. Your spouse needs to know that he can rely on you to make rational, smart choices, especially when it comes to finances. Even if you have a lot of money in the bank, outrageous spending can be a sign of immaturity. It is not a smart or healthy way to deal with your emotions on a regular basis. And to keep this secret before you walk down the aisle is crazy. It all but guarantees an eventual trip to a marriage counselor or worse -- to divorce court. Hope Jen smartens up and puts that wallet away.

Do you think money problems can ruin any relationship?

Honestly, $15,00 on a summer wardrobe is a drop in the bucket if you're Jenn Aniston. And she earns her own money, the bills are paid, it isn't his dang buisness how she much she's spending on clothes.

Agree 100% with Heather Jones.    I wish this is another fake story about Jen and Justin.

Jen did not ruin her marriage. Brad is a cheater who blew it. Jen is better off after divorcing Brad. She is the winner always. Now she is successful, happy and healthy. I'm so happy for her.

yeah, i agree up above. if the bills are paid, etc. it isn't his business how she spends HER money. i'm sure he doesn't ask her how he can spend HIS money.

Honestly, the woman is loaded.  She was a millionaire many times over when Friends ended.  She should be able to spend her money the way she wants.

I don't believe this story. Jennifer is often photographed wearing repeat outfits - the same blazer, the same jeans, etc. etc. She doesn't seem like an over-spender in the least.

Bobby Barbara Smith

This article is crap! She can spend her money any way she wants, married or not. I get so sick of these negative stereotype stories, painting Jennifer as a poor pitiful sad, women. Nothing could be further from the truth. She's beautiful, she's talented, she's smart, which is more then I can say for the person writing the above dribble. Brad Pit is from my home state, but I wouldn't walk across the street to see him or his wife. Now there's someone with issues!

So Pitt left a girl who goes on impulsive $15,000 shopping sprees, for a girl who is adopting orphans from impoverished nations. And we're supposed to feel sorry for Aniston?

Judith Davis

I hope this is not true. I want her to have a good marriage. I wish them the best.

Stupid story, stupid author. Another "I haven't got anything to write so I'll just make something up" piece.

Get a life! and do some REAL writing for a change.
