When it rains it pours.  I think it’s safe to say Gwyneth Paltrow is having a really tough year.  First, there was the backlash to her selection as “Most Beautiful Woman” by People Magazine.  Then, there was the threat of Vanity Fair Magazine writing a very unflattering expose.  Now this news…Gwyneth and her rock star hubby Chris Martin have decided to call it quits after 11 years of marriage.  Or, in the words of the couple’s joint statement, they’re ‘consciously uncoupling’.

Here’s how Gwyneth and Chris announced their split on the actresses’ lifestyle blog

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 separated, 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. We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner.

I have to ask, what in the world does ‘consciously uncouple’ mean?  It sounds like a Pilates move or some form of meditation lol.   Apparently, it’s the 5-star way of saying you’ve given it your all, but now realize it’s time to throw in the towel.  I’m sure this is a very painful time for them both.  It’s always sad to see a couple separate when children are involved.  I’m holding out hope for a reconciliation.  Anything is possible, right?   Here’s to consciously coupling! Gwyneth and Chris, we’re rooting for you guys!

Do you think Gwyneth and Chris will patch things up?
