“Iron Man” actress Gwyneth Paltrow recently announced via her blog Goop, that she’s decided to breakup with her husband and Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin.
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.
Last year, Gwyneth told Glamour magazine that being married to Chris for the past ten years isn’t a bed of organic, macrobiotic roses.
“It’s hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We’re the same as any couple,” she said.
“I asked my dad once, ‘How did you and Mum stay married for 33 years?’ And he said, ‘Well, we never wanted to get divorced at the same time’. And I think that’s what happens.”
That’s not exactly romantic, but probably pretty true.
“When two people throw in the towel at the same time, then you break up, but if one person’s saying, ‘come on, we can do this’, you carry on.”
The couple have two children together (Apple, 9, and Moses, 7).
