Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin Don't Let Divorce Get in Way of Family Time

gwyneth paltrowWe've all got our own theories and thoughts regarding the conscious uncoupling of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin. And then there's the little fact that Chris is now dating Jennifer Lawrence. Plus, there's that incident where Gwyneth got slammed by the Queen Martha Stewart. It's tough times for Paltrow, but she has somehow managed to stay cool and calm, in true Gwyneth form. And now she's been spotted back together with Chris.

It's not that kind of back together, but the couple-not-couple had a nice family dinner with the kids. That's something I think all broken up couples with kids should do every once in a while. Even though it can be a difficult thing to do.


Now that Chris is dating J. Law, I suppose it's one of those things he will have to run by her. Hi honey. I'm hanging out with my ex tonight. Just having a little family dinner at that Italian spot she loves. I guess I'll see you tomorrow then, okay?

It may take a strong woman to be able to deal with that. And it's not like he can't tell her. Because it's Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow we're talking about the photogs will be all over this outing, snapping photos for the world to see. So Chris is better off just telling his new love everyone ahead of time so there is no weirdness.

Still ... it can be weird. But necessary when there are kids involved. Chris and Gwyneth still need to co-parent Apple and Moses. They still need to be involved in the decisions, the issues, the every day kid stuff that comes up. I think it's fantastic and very healthy for these two to figure out how to have a peaceful dinner as a family so the kids have a sense of the new normal. Divorce, or conscious uncoupling, doesn't have to be awful for the kids or even for the couple.

What do you think of Gwyneth and Chris having family dinners with the kids?
