Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are still newlyweds--having just tied the knot this summer. They still utilize little ways of giving and taking that help balance their lives and make their marriage successful, despite its lack of longevity.

For example, Justin Theroux frequently tells Jennifer Aniston that she's beautiful.

"Not to be corny, but it's true," he said during a chat with ET while at Activision for the launch of the game, "Call of Duty: Black Ops III." "So I constantly say that."

Speaking of video games, that's part of how Jennifer Aniston does her "giving part" of that marital give and take.

ET asked Justin Theroux if Jen ever plays "Call of Duty" with him.

"No. Jen does not play the game, and doesn't understand why I play the game, but she allows me to," he said. "She's nice enough to let me go away for a couple hours a couple times a week and play."

Would you have pegged Justin Theroux as a video game junky? Are you surprised Jennifer Aniston doesn't join in on his fun? (If you answered "no" to that second question, you're probably not alone.)

Give and take makes most marriages run smoother. If complimenting Jennifer Aniston and letting Justin Theroux indulge in his closeted video game binges keeps them happy, then more power to this power couple.

It will be fun to learn in five years if what they deem so perfect now becomes tedious with time.

Do you think Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are in it for the long haul together?
