Some Conscious Uncouplers are Very Close. Know That.

They may have "consciously uncoupled," but Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow still remain close, despite their impending divorce.

"The thing that we told everyone at the beginning of the year is true," the Coldplay singer, 37, said of their split in an interview with Valentine in the Morning airing on Monday.

But he said that he still has a tight bond with the Oscar winner, with whom he has two children (Apple, 10, and Moses, 8). "We're very close," he said, adding, "We're not together. That's the truth."

Paltrow, 41, announced their amicable split via her Goop website in March after 11 years of marriage.

"We have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate," she wrote. "We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been."

The couple have been seen together since then, vacationing in the Bahamas with their kids, and they were even spotted holding hands in April.

"There's a lot of love," Martin said. "There's no scandal.


I bet you could cut the tension with a knife.

ONTD, did you consciously uncouple with somebody not too long ago as well? Was it the opposite? Spill that tea all over me.

Lbr, they were leading separate lives long before they announced it to the world.

I would believe that if he hadn't moved to LA with her last year.

Quoi? Living separate lives while still being around each other is possible. I didn't say they were living on different continents.

idk it just seems like he could've stayed in London if it was already over and they were already living separate lives, but the move to LA seemed like one of those last ditch efforts to make the marriage work. Better than having a baby.

Sure, i actually agree with that. My belief is that they led separate lives in London for awhile and then moved to L.A to try make it work but realized that it wasn't happening.

Yeah, tbh, that wouldn't surprise me either.

I actually wonder what happened to make Chris agree to it. I figure he was probably feeling very guilty about something. lol

Lainey is often full of shit but i believe her Alexa Chung story, or at least least part of it.

They probably do still care for each other, but they just don't want to fuck anymore, hence the divorce. Idk it seems like a very complicated relationship but it's great that they are still friends.

Kinda ot - I'm watching Sky Captain and the world of Tomorrow right now and don't know if I like or not. One thing for sure it's pretty to look at.

I completely forgot about that movie! I don't remember if I saw it or not. lol

I wanted to love Sky Captain so much.

I actually really liked it. The visuals are stunning.

Good for them!

Hopefully things are as good and stress free as they can be for their kids.

Good for them. They're probably keeping things stable for the kids

broke up with my fiance who i'd been with for 7 years a few months ago. to be blunt, he was emotionally abusive, and i finally had the self love and confidence to leave him.
he didnt take it well. he wouldnt stop texting me or calling me despite me telling him i didn't want to talk to him. he threatened suicide. he said if i commited suicide, he'd still win because then nobody else would be able to have me. he emailed my parents, my friends, and my cousin. he said that "he was worried about me" and he "just wanted to make sure i was okay". meanwhile he's texting me and telling me he doesn't know how he's dealt with my crap for 7 years, have i been fucking someone else, etc etc, then apologizing hours later and begging for me to take him back. rinse and repeat.
he's out of the country for a little bit right now though so i feel like i can breathe easy for the next few weeks.

Change your phone number. And I'm glad you got out of your abusive relationship.

heck yes I recently uncoupled (we weren't even really a couple because it was long distance) but he was a clingy motherfucker and I do not need that shit. he kinda won't leave me alone tho and like keeps messaging me over Facebook. he thinks there's hope. there is no hope.

I tried itit - the conscious uncoupling. It didn't work. Now we're not talking at all. He's still on my Facebook though. Initially when it happened, I was glad and relieved. But I often miss hi.

i couldn't deal with keeping in touch with my most recent ex -- the way he ended things was just too messed up...but i actually wished i was still close with one of my ex's. he's an amazing person but obviously he wants to move on so keeping in touch is out of the question. oh well

i don't even know what to call our relationship at the moment, what does "let's play it by ear" even mean?! i may try to ~consciously uncouple~ for the sake of my own sanity.

Ugh that was me and I almost missed out on my current wonderful bf bc of it

End it now! Either it is or it isn't not this stupid grey area that's clearly make you feel unstable (referring to your sanity)

Good for them tbh. Celeb divorces get so nasty these days, it's nice to see people acting like adults for once.

My parents have a weird relationship like that, i think. They got divorced about two years ago after 27 years of marriage, on my mom's decision (she was actually the one cheating on him, but anyway...)

The first year apart was very 'cold', my mom did not like talking to my dad at all, would just straight up ignore him. But the year after, they were on okay terms again. We still celebrate holidays together, we're a really small family it's pretty much just the three of us. Sometimes my dad drives her around to do errands/groceries together. Sometimes my mom has even stayed over at our place (in my room, on holidays or emergency situations like when the power went out one time). They still live apart though, and I live with my dad. They also date other people so I know they're likely not gonna ever go back together. I guess they just have a mutual friendship thing still going.

It will be tough though, if my dad ever takes the next step with his current, super young gf. It's a long-distance relationship, but if she ever moves over here, I think that would change things even more between my mom and dad, even though they're technically divorced. I just don't want my mom to be too comfortable that he's 'always gonna be there' if he won't someday...

Yeah its called not being able to let go when you should

I would like to consciously uncouple. but we've moving in together in like, three weeks soooooooooooooooooooo

oh my god are you me?

what are you gonna do, sis bc i'm beat?

that's exactly where my husband and i are. we separated almost two months ago, but we're so much better to each other being apart and will always having each other's backs. some couples just aren't meant to married, doesn't mean you have to be nasty to each other (depending on the reason of the split).
