Fans of Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt may have some cause for celebration! After Brad Pitt’s very public separation from his now ex-wife Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt has become sober and sought therapy for himself.

As a result, he’s now more “in touch with his emotions and his true self like never before.” The source added, “He’s come to realise that leaving Jen for Angelina was one of the biggest mistakes of his life.”

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were married back in 2000, and got divorced 5 years later in 2005. Brad Pitt had a 9-year relationship with Angelina Jolie, and the couple were married for 2 years before they also got divorced.

Jennifer Aniston recently announced her split from Justin Theroux. The couple had tied the knot back in 2015.

He ‘would take a second chance at love with Jen in a heartbeat’

The source adds “And while he’s not in love with Jen, he realizes how much he does love her. Brad keeps telling friends that he’s seeing everything more clearly.”

Brad also reportedly said that while he would “never dream” of ruining Jen’s marriage, if he was given the chance, he “would take a second chance at love with Jen in a heartbeat.”

According to the source, Brad “still considers Jen the love of his life.”

Can you stay friends with your ex?

In any marriage, couples are bound to have problems. While some couples successfully overcome their differences, for other couples, it can end in divorce. It sounds disappointing, but that’s just the way some things go.

Some people choose to stop all communication with their ex, as obviously, it’s not easy to have a civil relationship with your ex. But is it possible to stay friends after everything?

It’s possible to stay friends

Difficult as it may be, it’s possible for divorced couples to stay friends with each other, especially for couples who have kids.

There’s no easy way to go about it since both parties need to overcome their anger, grief, and sadness, but eventually, friendship can blossom out of a broken relationship.

What can ex-couples do?

There’s no hard and fast rule when it comes to reconciling and being friends with an ex, but it surely takes a lot of hard work and willingness to reconcile.

Talking about the past can also bring up some painful memories, and it’s something that both parties have to work through. A good way to go about it is to focus instead on the present, especially for their kids.  

It’s not a good idea for ex-couples to act uncivil towards each other since it’s not uncommon for the children of divorced parents to think that they are the reason why their parents broke up.

Sometimes, seeking help from a therapist can also help ex-couples reconcile with one another. So long as both parties are interested in reconciliation, then eventually ex-couples can stay friends with one another.

Ultimately, the most important thing would be to remember that they’re doing this not only for the sake of their kids, but also to find peace within themselves and with each other.
