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

You might be guessing that who said the statement, right? The ex-couple Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin is the one to state it as they have officially divorced now. Announcing their separation in March 2014, Paltrow filed the divorce in April 2015 and even if Martin had not responded to the petition, their divorce was finalized just a day before on July 15. And they cleared that now they don’t need spousal maintenance. Hmm! Not every relation is meant to be together forever.

Nothing lasts forever and so did the relation of Paltrow and Martin. The ex-couple who had been in the relation of “conscious coupling” has now finally fixed their own way but would be staying like a family only for the sake of their children: daughter Apple (born 2004) and son Moses (born 2006).

Talking about their present relationship status- both of them has chosen their perfect one. Nobody knows either their new relationship is long lasting or not but they are surely enjoying the company of their new partners. Martin is dating English actress Annabelle Wallis whereas Paltrow is dating Brad Falchuk.

Paltrow is staying in the LA suburb of Pacific Palisades in a £13.5 million marital home and she does have a staggering net worth of $ 60 million and Martin has bought a $ 8 million home nearby and he has an amassed net worth of $ 90 million.

So their life before the divorce was like this- before the separation, they were the happiest couple spending both bitter and better times together but their eventual separation scattered everything. In spite of the separation, they are sometimes seen together for their children and are being true to their words.

After the one year of the split, they were reported enjoying the beach vacation with their children. Not only that, the family of four celebrated Apple’s 12th birthday on Disneyland and Paltrow posted a selfie together with martin on Instagram too.


The famous band Coldplay singer Chris Martin and actress Gwyneth Paltrow might not be an exemplary couple but they are surely exemplary parents who are co-parenting the children even after the separation.

Paltrow says-

"As anybody who has been divorced knows, you have to put a lot aside to maintain the family and the practicalities of what that might mean and sometimes that's quite tough on a personal level. It's a commitment I make every day to my children and their father even though we're not in a romantic relationship."

And what is the most surprising thing here is Paltrow was previously engaged to actor Brad Pitt and later their engagement was called off. Even she had an on-and-off relationship with Ben Affleck.

Anyways, we wish both of their current relation would be a long lasting and stable one.
