Jennifer Aniston & Justin Theroux Don't Have to Be Hitched to Send a Holiday Card Together

jennifer aniston and justin therouxNo matter what Jennifer Aniston does, she's bound to make tongues wag. And her latest move -- a joint effort with her boyfriend Justin Theroux -- is no different. Word has it the couple, who have been dating since earlier this year, sent out a holiday greeting card together to family and friends and made donations in their names.

Reportedly, the card reads: "We wish you and your family a holiday season full of happiness & joy. A donation has been made in your name to St Jude's Children's Research Hospital and Best Friends Animal Society. With warmth and love, Jen and Justin."

Awww, super cute! But surely, there will be snark sent Jen's way for this. Especially because the two aren't wed yet.

I know, it sounds so old-school and silly to put it that way, but some people really think unmarried couples sending out holiday cards together is a no-no. I don't get it. 

My boyfriend and I sent out a simple, cute, festive photo card a couple of years back, and someone made a passive-aggressive remark about how cheesy it was and that they didn't send out cards like that until they were married -- or better yet, became parents. They made it like it's always premature to send a card together before you've become Mr. and Mrs. Yeah, nice, right?

While we haven't done it since (I opted for e-cards this year to go green), I don't regret doing it at all. As far as I know, there's no rule book or Miss Manners column that advises unmarried couples send out separate greeting cards. I feel like doing the duo card is fit for anyone who considers themselves an official, serious couple, in other words -- partners or live-in lovebirds. I've heard some couples do it to signal that a wedding invite is on its way, but that's not necessarily always the case either.

No matter what their future plans are, I'm 100 percent behind Jen and Justin's joint greeting card. Anyone who gets on a happy couple's case for sending season's greetings together is like nothing but a total Grinch!

Are you opposed to unmarried couples sending a joint greeting card?
