Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have split after 10 years of marriage. They announced it on Gwyneth's website which says they've been on and off for a year, but have come to the conclusion that while they love each other they will remain separate. They have “consciously uncoupled” *scratches head*
Chris has never really publicly spoken about his marriage to Gwyneth - but she has declared some home truths throughout their marriage - and they're very VERY honest. Here's a few:
"Sometimes it's hard being with someone for a long time. We go through periods that aren't all rosy,” Gwyneth told Elle in 2011.
Long before their divorce announcement, Gwyn talked about the idea of a break up and was at least happy she chose Chris to father her children:
“I always say, life is long and you never know what's going to happen. If, God forbid, we were ever not to be together, I respect him so much as the father of my children. Like, I made such a good choice. He's such a good dad.”
She has also said the reason they're together is because "they didn't both want to get divorced at the same time". Sadly, that's not the case any more.
Maybe her crazy macrobiotic-type lifestyle had something to do with it - it can't be easy living with someone who "would rather die than allow her kids have a Cuppasoup" (true story).
Meanwhile, Chris was spotted last night eating a Big Mac, drinking beer and savouring every morsel/drop*
