Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s relationship is about to go the distance—literally.

The two are going to have to spend six months apart, more than 2,500 miles away from one another, thanks to their hectic work schedules.

This November, Justin is set to dive into his latest TV venture—an HBO series called "The Leftovers." Meanwhile, Jennifer is wrapped up in LA, busier than ever as she acquires new projects for her production company.

Life & Style is calling the latest development Jen and Justin’s “biggest test” yet, namely because Jennifer’s “worried they’ll lose their connection and drift apart,” according to a source close to the actress.

Jen plans to visit him on the East Coast regularly, but she won’t be making a full-time move. She felt “paranoid and cranky” the last time she tried to move there for Justin in 2011, the source explained, but the city wasn’t her scene. For the LA native, it felt like “living in a fishbowl,” the source added.

On the other hand, Justin’s a New Yorker at heart and their different upbringings have become increasingly evident during their time apart. “He likes his way of life better in New York,” the source said. “But Jen knows she’s suppose to be with him forever.”
