Apparently "conscious uncoupling" is a longer process than any of us realized.
According to a new report from TMZ, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are still living together, despite having announced their separation back in March.
The cohabitation revelation came in the form of leaked court documents related to a crazed fan who's been stalking Gwyneth for years, at one point even making his way into her home.
Understandably, Gwyneth has filed for a restraining order against her stalker. Less understandable is the fact that the petition lists Chris as one of the protected parties and includes a handwritten note indicating that Martin lived with Paltrow.
The news that Paltrow and Martin are still living under the same roof is particularly surprising in the wake of a report that Martin is officially dating Alexa Chung, a British model with whom he allegedly cheated on Gwyneth while he was still married.
Naturally, questions are being raised as to whether or not Paltrow and Martin are attempting a reconciliation or a "thoughtful harmonization" as they probably call it.
We can only imagine how confused Gwyneth and Chris' children are over their parents attempts to win the record for world's most drawn-out separation. Bad enough they named the kids Apple and Moses, now they're dragging them through this!
I've learned more about myself being married than anything else. I hate to say, "We've got it worked out," because you never know what's going to happen, but we laugh, we're good friends, we like to do the same stuff.
It's hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We're the same as any couple.
I definitely have to coax things out of him when we talk. You know, he's British, so it's a different lexicon totally. But you have to communicate. Otherwise there's no relationship.
We've gone through some terrible times where it's been really, really hard, but I've sort of come through those times with a much deeper understanding of myself. And we're still married. We worked through it. I think it's easier to get divorced. But I think the more you keep at it, the more you end up seeing the value in it. But man, sometimes it is not easy.
Sometimes it's hard being with someone for a long time. We go through periods that aren't all rosy. I always say, life is long and you never know what's going to happen.
I'm a very grounded, homey person and Chris is a very mad scientist, genius songwriter. So I never say, "Where are you? You should be home by now." I never place demands on him.
When two people throw in the towel at the same time, then you break up, but if one person's saying, 'come on, we can do this,' you carry on."
