Maybe the conscious decoupling wasn’t so conscious after all.
Gwyneth Paltrow and her ex Chris Martin may have helped invent the phrase “conscious decoupling,” but that’s apparently not what she wanted to do at all.
Gwyneth and Chris, who share children Apple and Moses, married in 2003 but mutually decided to separate in 2014.
At the time, the couple admitted that “as much as we love each other very much, we will stay apart” and expressed their efforts to put their children first.
But looking at her divorce on a recent episode of Anna Faris is not qualified, Gwyneth says it was never her desire to separate.
“I learned so much from something that I least wanted in the world. I never wanted to divorce. I never wanted to not be married to the father of my children, in theory, ”Gwyneth explained.
But Gwyneth added that there were some benefits to the situation, noting, “I learned more about myself through this process than I could have imagined. And because I focused on responsibility, I was able to find the most amazing man and build something. that I never had with Brad [Falchuk], my husband. “
Gwyneth and Brad first developed a friendship after meeting on set Joy. Things then got romantic and the duo finally got married in 2018.
“He demands that I be honest with myself. It’s hard for me but it really helps me grow, ”concluded Gwyneth.
So while the separation of Gwyneth and Chris might not have been totally ideal, it looks like things turned out well in the end!
