The couple “deliberately” broke up in 2016 and continues to raise children together.
Gwyneth Paltrow visited the Drew Barrymore show, where she talked about her relationship with her ex-husband Chris Martin. The couple divorced in 2016, practicing “mindful separation”. Gwyneth has repeatedly said that she and Chris tried to resolve their personal problems, while maintaining the integrity of the family. According to the actress, they succeeded. Martin and Paltrow continue to raise children together, keep in touch and still get together for family holidays.
This is when you get divorced but remain a family. Sometimes things don’t go as smoothly as they seem, there are bad days, there are good days. But nevertheless we strive for unity, love and a better future for our children,
– noted Gwyneth.
The fact that we broke up does not mean that we cannot love in each other what we once loved,
– said the actress and added that now her relationship with Chris is much better than when they were married.
We wanted to do everything so that our children do not have an injury [из-за развода родителей]… We put them first. It turned out to be difficult, because sometimes you don’t want to be with the person you are divorcing at all. But if you decide to get together and have a family dinner, you do it no matter what,
– noted Gwyneth.
Previously, Paltrow said in an interview that she and Chris were simply “not right for each other”:
We’ve always been friends. We laughed at some things, shared our impressions, jokes and all sorts of nonsense. We were close, although we never fully became a couple. We just didn’t fit well together. There was always a little discomfort and anxiety. But God, how we loved our children!
