So apparently Jennifer Aniston is taking a year off work to dedicate time to her new relationship with a guy called Justin Theroux, with whom she is 'extremely happy'.

I suppose it's one of the luxuries of being a wealthy celebrity that you can afford to stop working at any time to concentrate on something else, like love or surfing or going to rehab. Most of us need to fit romance in to our normal lives. Otherwise we'd be blissfully loved up but malnourished.

Maybe if I'd spent more time listening to my last girlfriend's problems instead of going to work, we'd still be together now. Or perhaps if my ex-ex-girlfriend had dedicated entire days to making me spaghetti Bolognese, I wouldn't have lost interest in her.
