Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin Announce They're Splitting

Gwyneth PaltrowIt's official. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have announced their separation, or as she called on her website Goop, a "Conscious Uncoupling." Because even though she's decided to get a divorce, she's still Gwynnie.

She wrote, "It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separate, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate."

The news comes after swirling rumors that Gwyneth had an affair with entertainment attorney Kevin Yorn, but they were just rumors, and given that Gwyn and Chris seem so amicable about all of this, it stands to reason that adultery may not necessarily be involved.

Besides, Gwyneth has famously said that she doesn't believe cheating is a legitimate reason to end a marriage.

Sometimes things just don't work out, no matter how hard you try. It is nice to see that Gwyneth is remaining Gwyneth though. She didn't fail at marriage, she's just "remaining separate" from her husband in a "conscious uncoupling." Gwyneth Paltrow even does divorce better than you. And she does it effortlessly.

Are you surprised by this news?

Not even close to surprised: There have been so many hints and signs in the past few years. I think it's great that they really tried to find a way to stay together, and I also applaud their decision to end it; the change was well-considered and allows them to remain friendly, loving parents to their kids.
