Jennifer Aniston confirmed her relationship with Justin Theroux had not, contrary to rumours, suffered any strains owing to their engagement. Appearing at a promotion event for her upcoming film 'We're the Millers': 44-year-old Aniston said they intended to wait until the "perfect" moment.
Jennifer Aniston is happy to discuss the rumours surrounding her married to Justin Theroux. Appearing at a We're the Millers promotional event, she spoke to the press in order to clear any misunderstanding regarding her engagement.

The couple have been dating since May 2011. Theroux asked the Friends star to marry him on her birthday in August last year. There have been numerous rumours surrounding the state of the couple's relationship including, according to USA Today, that Theroux had called off the engagement earlier this year.
Aniston is happy to clear up any misunderstanding: "We have yet to set any dates. There have been no cancelled weddings. There have been no postponed weddings. There have been no arguments about where to get married".
After all, some would argue a marriage licence is only a piece of paper, Aniston seems to be in this category as she said "we already feel married". This is hardly the world's longest engagement! In fact many couples spend decades together without ever needing or desiring to tie the knot.
Kiss singer Gene Simmons married his partner of 28 years Shannon Tweed in 2011. Whilst Indiana Jones actor Harrison Ford was with his partner Calista Flockhart for almost a decade before they finally married in 2010. Farrah Fawcett, following a thirty year relationship with Ryan O'Neal, only agreed to marry him once she was diagnosed with cancer. Sadly, she died before the ceremony could be performed.

Aniston and Theroux are in no rush and they want "to do it when it's perfect". She also mentioned their hectic lives which does mean they are "rushed", something they want to avoid when they eventually decide to wed. Aniston said she wants to ensure "no one is rushing from a job or rushing to a job".
In this writer's opinion: we should all stop speculating. Aniston and Theroux are evidently happy and whether they eventually marry or not does not change the validity of their relationship.
Audiences will be able to see Aniston in We're the Millers on 7th August in the US and the 23rd August in the UK.
