Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are officially engaged ... but is he "the one" for her?
Like many, I grew up with Jennifer Aniston as my "friend" on TV. Like all of us, she has had a run of relationships. Some were good, some were bad, some were almost Mr. Right, and some were just Mr. Right Now. So, what makes Justin Theroux "the one?"
Jennifer and Justin started dating in May of 2011, after co-staring in the movie Wanderlust and soon started co-habitating in a $21 million dollar love nest in Bel Air, California. Little else is known about their relationship; they have kept a lot of details secret. But, if you watch back the interviews she has given when asked about him, you see her face light up.
When talking about Justin on an interview with ABC's Lara Spencer back in June, she was asked about her relationship with him. Though she was trying to be coy, she smiled, nodded her head and said, "Yes, I'm very happy. I'm extremely lucky and extremely happy." Tips To Relieve Engagement Stress
So, what is the difference between Justin and her other famous partners? Well, one thing is that they are both very private about their personal lives and while they don't exactly avoid the spotlight, they don't seek it out like some of Jennifer's past loves. If you remember back in the day when she was married to Brad Pitt, they would go to events together and while she smiled at the cameras, she didn't seek them out as much as Brad seemed too.
Jennifer has dated several funny men but Justin seems to have a great natural sense of humor that leaves her constantly smiling. You can tell by both Jennifer and Justin's visits on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that they have a fun-filled humorous relationship. The fact that Jennifer brought Justin's special pair of break dancing shoes to Ellen, just so Ellen could embarrass him, shows that they have a special humor-filled bond ... and I think it will last. The 3 Cs Of A Happy Engagement
Here's why: they are both private people, both have a great sense of humor and make each other laugh. But the true indication that it will last is the adoption of their "child" — a dog named Sophie (a pitbull mix) who they adopted in February of 2012 from a mobile animal shelter. You know it is going to last once you adopt a pet together. Engaged? 5 Rules For Keeping Your Friendships Intact
