Gwyneth Paltrow graces the cover of Glamour magazine’s March issue and opens up about uncoupling with soon to be ex-husband Chris Martin. Paltrow and Martin’s divorce seems to be one of the most civilized in Hollywood. In the interview she discusses how she and Chris have committed themselves to remaining a family, goes on to say that they, “spend a lot of time together” and reveals that she still believes in marriage.
Marriage after divorce
Individuals that go through a divorce can become jaded but this is not the case with Paltrow. When asked if she will ever get married again her response was, “I don’t know. I guess so. I mean, I believe in marriage. But I’m not even divorced yet! So give me a minute.” Still believing in marriage after divorce is a step in the right direction. Sometimes marriages do not work out but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try again. You may find the love of your life. The important thing is to remarry for the right reasons and at the right time. A person needs time to heal, they have to marry for love (not necessity) and it has to happen at a time when you can give the relationship the care and attention it needs.
Benefits of “conscious uncoupling”
As revealed in the interview, both Paltrow and Martin are ending their marriage in a very positive way. They stay on good terms and even sleep over at each other’s homes so the entire family (they have two children) can have breakfast together and share a morning routine before the kids go off to school. When discussing this, the star said, “I sleep in his house in Malibu a lot with the kids. We’ll have a weekend all together; holidays, we’re together. We’re still very much a family, even though we don’t have a romantic relationship.”
Ending a marriage in such a positive way not only allows both parties to maintain a healthy relationship with each other (which is especially important if children are involved) but helps prevent all parties involved from developing a negative view of marriage.
