Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announce separation


After ten years of marriage, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced their separation on Gwyneth’s website Goop in a post with the headline Conscious Uncoupling.

The post reads: “It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate.

“We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been,” it continues. “We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time.


“We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner,” the post concludes.

A source told E! News: “They fell out of love. The one thing that kept them together was the kids. The love was lost. They realized that they were more friends and not lovers and they were at different stages of their careers.”

Gwyneth and Chris got married in December 2003 and have two children together; Apple, nine, and Moses, seven.

    The present mass media kills the notion of a true love. Many consider that loving is always having butterflies in stomach and being in a passion all the time. This is not so. Love requires work and has its ups and downs and both parties would work on it to reach the common goal – to last till the end of the days. Love transforms in a deep feeling and becomes more than just passion. Still, when two people cannot improve it for a year or so, then it s better to separate peacefully and enjoy life. Great that they remained friends as this is better for the kids.

    Well I am very sorry to read that, they lost their love towards each other and were living like friends for the sake of their children. So what? Millions of people throughout the entire world are doing the same thing on the everyday basis, and they are not complaining that it has happened this way with them, so why the heck would Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin complain about it? Didn’t they know about the fact that at some point of family life, or even simple relationship the love goes away but the mutual care and mutual respect remain? Why didn’t they asked their parents, I am sure that they live same way. That is why I am really sorry for everything happening this way; they should have tried harder for the sake of their children. They say they need privacy for a normal life? Then in this case they should have really tried, instead of choosing the easiest option to fall apart.

    Awe that is so sad, Gwyneth and Chris, were one of the most beautiful and strong couples in Hollywood, I always thought that the secret of their successful marriage was the fact that they were not showing their love off, and lived in a very simple and private atmosphere, where Gwyneth Paltrow has done the impossible, she stepped back from her carrier in order to become a good mother and an exemplary wife, and I am really sorry that she was not able to make it. They say they both decided that their marriage was finished, but I am sure that it is not truth, in reality someone of those two have give up on the other person, that is why the whole family collapsed. In this situation would be good if their families would have helped them, but it seems that no one was there for them in order to give a good advice.

    Mm, I am not surprised at all with the fact that they are divorcing after ten years of marriage and having two wonderful children together, what I am really surprised with is the fact how Chris Martin was able to tolerate Gwen’s arrogant character for such a long period of time? I have no idea what is so special about Gwyneth Paltrow, if the majority of Hollywood hottest men were after her, and so heartbroken after she was leaving them (like for example Brad Pitt or Ben Affleck), but eventually she does have some special point. So basically what I am trying to say here, is that I am glad for Chris, and for the fact that he was able to escape Gwyneth, hopefully he will not lose his faith in the fact that good women really exist, and will be able to love another woman one day.
