Constantly hassled about whether she is dating, engaged, or pregnant, 45-year-old Jennifer Anniston has slammed the way women are defined by their relationships and by motherhood.
As a celebrity Jennifer attracts more harassment than most on the issue, but she feels that all women are unfairly pressured to conform to the image of wife and mother, and made to feel like failures if they don’t fit the mould.
“It's always such an issue of, 'Are you married yet? Do you have your babies yet?' It's constant," the actress said in an interview.”

"I don't know. I don't have this checklist of things that have to be done and if they're not checked I've failed some part of my feminism or being a woman or my value as a woman because I haven't birthed a child."

"I've birthed a lot of things and I feel I've mothered many things. I don't think it's fair to put that pressure on people." Jennifer added.
Jennifer is currently engaged to actor Justin Theroux, and is in no hurry to tie the knot.
"We're really happy and in love and feel like we're married. Eventually we'll get married when we find the time. I don't feel there is a rush."
