Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin give off vibes of exes who get along super well and have nailed the whole co-parenting thing, but apparently things aren’t always easy. As a reminder: these two ~consciously uncoupled~ back in 2016 after 12 years of marriage, and have remained close while raising their kids Moses and Apple.
“It’s like you’re ending a marriage but you’re still in a family. That’s how it will be forever,” Gwyneth explained on Tuesday’s episode of The Drew Barrymore Show, via People. “Some days it’s not as good as it looks. We also have good days and bad days, but I think it’s driving towards the same purpose of unity and love and what’s best for [our kids].”
“My divorce and my relationship with Chris now is better than our marriage was, so I think that it can be done,” she said, later adding “We have this idea that just because we break up we can’t love the things about the person anymore that we loved and that’s not true.”
Apparently, Gwyneth and Chris used a doctor who gave them “a rubric” for succesful co-parenting, and the key is accountability and knowing everything is 50/50.
Wow, I truly strive to be this emotionally mature one day.
