They tied the knot at their Bel-Air mansion in 2015.
But Justin Theroux is stated.to have had reservations about marrying Jennifer Aniston, as the actor, 46, was concerned they had yet to decide on what city they wanted to live in, according to Us Weekly.

Yet the actor was so in love with Jennifer, 49, he married her, even though marriage to him was always ‘just a piece of paper’.
It was Jennifer who was more keen on making it official.
The public’s constant scrutiny over her love life ‘played a huge role in her marriage to Justin’, the source explained.
‘It was obvious Jen needed more than an engagement or to be life partners with Justin. He didn’t want to lose her, so they got married.’

It had been previously suggested that disagreements about where they should live factored into the split.
Sources close to the pair have claimed to ET Online that a difference of opinion on where to live was one of the main causes for the break up, with Jennifer preferring Los Angeles, while Justin opting for New York.
An insider explained to ETOnline: ‘He much prefers being [in New York] and that’s been a major issue for them for a long time.

‘It’s an eclectic group’: Theroux had his own social network in NYC that he didn’t have available in LA, a source previously told ET Online (pictured September 2017 in LA)
‘Justin has a very diverse friend group, and he likes that they’re not all ‘in the industry. He’s friends with people in the restaurant world, writers, comedians, artists, tattoo artists. It’s an eclectic group and he doesn’t have that type of network in LA.
‘Justin can hop on his [motorcycle], walk in the neighborhood, hang at a bar and all that without being bothered, but for Jen, the paparazzi are all over her.
‘He really wanted her to be comfortable [in New York. He even negotiated with the paps to make a deal that they would only shoot her once per day and then leave her alone. He also agreed to move out of his apartment, which he loves.’
She just never really could get settled in, she wasn’t happy [in New York. He was bicoastal, she was not.’
Jennifer and Justin announced last week they were separating after more than two years of marriage.
