Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt were married from 2000 until 2005. During their marriage, they learned to face paparazzi as a couple and handle tabloidy headlines at every turn.

Their reunion at the SAG Awards this year drew quite a response, as they seemed comfortable and happy in each other’s presence. During their marriage, they were asked about one another quite often. As a result, they shared details about their relationship with the public that most couples get to keep private. 

Aniston explained to W Magazine a while back that Pitt has “strong opinions” regarding home design and all the aesthetics involved. Though she had her own opinions on how a house should be constructed, they compromised. 

Jennifer Aniston admired Brad Pitt’s strong opinions 

Aniston told W Magazine that she and Pitt had to compromise when it came to their homes. She said: 

“He definitely has strong opinions about aesthetics, and I admire that so much…It’s hard, though, because the one thing I thought I could do well was put homes together, but it’s something that really matters to him, so we’ve learned to make decisions that we both feel good about. And I actually think our marriage is even better now because we’ve been through this stuff. We’ve settled in; we’ve survived the whole house-construction aspect, and that’s a big thing. It’s not always easy. It takes work.”

Jennifer Aniston doesn’t trust couples who don’t fight; she and Pitt did

Aniston went on to explain that she and Pitt fought but in a more conversational manner. Aniston always felt that Pitt’s kindness was one of his greatest assets. Yet, she doesn’t trust couples that never disagree. She shared: 

“We do fight…Well, we have discussions. I am not a fan of fighting when it is screaming. I like accomplishing something. But I don’t trust a couple that says they don’t fight…

Aniston commented on Pitt’s kind and warm nature. She said:

“He’ll hate me for saying that…but when you grow up in a family where people are not always very kind to each other, you realize how important that is.”
