Lots of people think Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s wedding is going to happen sooner rather than later. Some people are even saying it might happen in the next few weeks, probably in Mexico. If it happens, it happens. I’ll wish them well and thank them for getting on with it after two years of speculation and conflicting reports about just what was holding up the works. I still believe that Justin was having cold feet about marriage in general, and marriage to Jennifer specifically. Like, he didn’t want to become Mr. Aniston. Too bad, hipster! Anyway, Life & Style says the real reason the engagement went on so long was because they were fighting about the prenup.
In the new issue of Life & Style, insiders claim that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s lengthy engagement was caused when the duo hit a stalemate while negotiating their prenuptial agreement.
“Haggling over assets and money put a real damper on Jen and Justin’s wedding planning for months,” an insider exclusively reveals to Life & Style. “It really held things up.”
Friends even began to worry that the couple might not make it to the altar at all. And for good reason: A second source tells the mag the couple have canceled wedding plans three previous times since their August 2012 engagement!
But it’s all necessary because Jen has a lot to protect: “Justin is worth $20 million and Jennifer is worth $150 million,” Brian Warner of Celebrity Net Worth reveals to Life & Style.
Despite these numbers, insiders tell the mag that Jen trusted her man so completely she wanted to move forward without an official agreement. Pals had to remind her that “she’d been burned before in breakups,” the source discloses.
Well, they’ll be residing in a community property state no matter what, so Jennifer could have the best prenup in the world and Justin could still end up with a chunk of her money. I don’t believe he’s worth $20 million either – don’t get me wrong, I think he’s got money, but I think that since he’s been with Jennifer, she’s been paying for everything. And maybe that’s what made Justin finally get with the program? I like the subtext here that Justin wanted to get married without a pre-nup. That’s very interesting.
