Rumor has it that Jennifer Aniston has put a halt to her wedding plans – at least for now. Justin Theroux and the former Friends actress have decided to slow down on their plans to walk down the aisle to focus on their separate careers. Both actors have signed up for upcoming movie projects. A source who knows the couple professionally told People, “There are other priorities (besides marriage).”Another insider said, “They need to figure out a way to create a life that makes them both happy. Still, Jen can’t wait to be (Justin’s) wife.”

What are some reasons to delay your wedding?

Cupid’s Advice:

Postponing a wedding is never an easy decision, but it might just be the best thing for you and your partner to do. Unforeseen events can happen that will make continuing on with wedding plans almost impossible, but this shouldn’t be a discouragement from the idea of marriage altogether. Cupid has some advice:

1. The stress: Sometimes the stress of planning a wedding can be overwhelming for a bride, especially if you’re doing it without much help. When this happens, it’s OK to take a break and get the focus back on the actual relationship, or maybe call in some reinforcements to help with the planning. Just because the wedding is postponed doesn’t mean you won’t get the chance to marry your significant other. It just means the wedding won’t happen when you originally planned it.

2. Careers: In some situations, weddings will need to be put on hold because of the careers of the bride, the groom or both. You or your partner might get that promotion you’ve always dreamed of and may need to relocate to a new city. If this happens, you and your partner will need to decide on a new place of residence. Until you get all of that settled, you won’t have much time to think about marriage.

3. Unexpected death: One of the most common reasons many couples delay their wedding is because of a sudden death of a family member or friend. It wouldn’t feel right to hold a wedding when so many people around you are in mourning. If you have to deal with an unfortunate situation like this, it would be wise to push back the wedding until after the grieving period has passed.
