Surprise! As soon as Brangelina get engaged, the rumor mill has goin' double-time with Jen Aniston news. First, we're told she's super-happy for her ex-hubby, because she's in a "wonderful place" with current BF Justin Theroux. (Some tabloids even claim she's preggers and the two are about to tie the knot, as well!) But, gossip from across the pond paints a very different picture about Jen's love life.
Reportedly, Jen and Justin's relationship is failing -- big time. Like, hardcore, on the brink of a breakup BAD. After a big blowup fight on Easter weekend, and Jen was left in "floods of tears." Doesn't sound like someone who is over-the-moon happy and in love to me!
A source "close to the situation" tells the U.K.'s Grazia magazine of the couple:
Justin suggested he needed some space, which escalated into an almighty row, and by the end of it he said he wanted a break and told Jen he had been looking into buying a place of his own in Los Angeles.
Sounds like one major point of contention is where they each want to live. As we heard a while back, Justin was arguing with her over where they should spend the bulk of their time -- NYC vs. L.A. A source explained:
At the beginning of the relationship, he didn't want to compromise his New York life, which is why Jen bought a place there. When she wasn't happy, he moved with her back to L.A. But it's not really his scene.
Okay, so if this is true -- you gotta give them both props for trying the other's city on for size for a while. But now -- who knows? I can't help but wonder if they've got trouble seeing eye-to-eye on the big things.
Unfortunately, even if you bend over backwards trying to compromise with your partner and make it work, someone might have to be okay with sacrificing something major from time to time. If you're not 100 percent in sync on where to live, whether or not to have kids/how many kids, what religion you'll raise 'em, etc., you figure it out and attempt to find common ground. For the sake of your relationship.
I don't get the impression that Jen's selfish and immature, but Justin might be. (This is the same guy after all who left his live-in girlfriend of 14 years like that for Jen.) While it may be painful for Jen right now, perhaps space is exactly what he needs to figure out what he wants. Whether he's willing to make it work -- or call it a day.

Have you and your partner always seen eye to eye on the big things or did it take a lot of work?
