Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux may have announced their split recently but things were not fine between the couple for a long time. According to US Weekly, things became so bad between the two that they chose to keep their bedrooms on the opposite ends of their Bel Air estate.

“When Justin was in Los Angeles and staying with Jen, he would typically spend most of his time in the guest house of the mansion,” an insider told the magazine. “He would play music, hang out and, in the final months of their marriage, would end up sleeping in the guest house.”

According to the magazine's insider, Jennifer believes that it is better for a couple to spend time apart as she believed it is good for two people to have their personal space and it seemed like Justin did not seem to mind that idea as well. “He just felt more comfortable [in the guest house] than in the main house with Jen," the insider added. 

While the two enjoyed doing their respective work, the couple's choice of location for staying seemed to have caused some problem between the two. “Jen tried the whole living in New York City thing with Justin, but at heart, she is a California girl. New York City just wasn’t ever going to be home for Jen,” the source said.

Despite this, it is reported that the actress allowed Justin to go have the time of his life in the city but that also seemed to have doomed their marriage. “Encouraging Justin to spend as much time as he wanted in New York City is what doomed the marriage. Jen thought by doing so, spending time without her would make Justin miss her more," the source added. 

After dating for seven years and being married for two years, the couple decided to go their separate" ways and in a joint statement announced that they had split on mutual grounds. “This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship," the statement read.
