An open essay has been posted by Gwyneth Paltrow for the British magazine “British vogue” in its latest issue about the issue of her marriage with Christ Martin and about the decision to divorce.
She wrote in her essay saying “My ex and I had always been friends. We laughed at the same things, shared a funny bones humor, impressions, utter silliness. We were moved by the same qualities in music: beautiful chords, innovation, harmonies. Peter Gabriel, Chopin, Sigur Rós – though I listened for pleasure and he like he was studying for an exam. We loved walking to and from Osteria Basilico through the park for pizza, especially on those British summer nights when the sun doesn’t ever seem to set. We loved road trips to the New Forest or to the seaside. But most of all, we loved our children,”
She also discussed about the things which didn’t work and resluted for the divorce, she wrote “We were close, though we had never fully settled into being a couple. We just didn’t quite fit together. There was always a bit of unease and unrest. But man, did we love our children.”
Gwyneth and Chris are parents of 2 kids together and this was insisted by Gwyneth that they tried everything to save their marriage.
She said explaining this Between the day that I knew and the day we finally relented to the truth, we tried everything. We did not want to fail. We didn’t want to let anyone down. We desperately didn’t want to hurt our children. We didn’t want to lose our family.”
Brad Falchuk is new husband of Gwyneth and she said about thir separation that public reaction of her split from Chris surprised her completely.
She said explaining this “The public’s surprise gave way quickly to ire and derision. A strange combination of mockery and anger that I had never seen. I was already pretty tattered from what had been a tough year. Frankly, the intensity of the response saw me bury my head in the sand deeper than I ever had in my very public life.”
