Gwyneth Paltrow and producer Brad Falchuk tied the knot in an intimate, star-studded wedding ceremony at her East Hampton estate on Saturday, Sept. 29.
As far as Paltrow is concerned, this marriage is her first because she never divorced her first husband, British rocker Chris Martin.
Paltrow, 46, used the now famous phrase "conscious uncoupling" to describe her separation and divorce from the Coldplay frontman after 10 years of marriage.
The couple broke up in 2014 and filed for divorce in 2015. The divorce was finalized in 2016. Paltrow and Martin share two children, Apple and Moses.
Paltrow, who refuses to use the word "divorce", suggested she came up with the new phrase "conscious uncoupling" to help her cope with her failed marriage.
“Do I regret consciously uncoupling? No, not at all. The term is a bit dorky," she said on her Goop podcast.
“I think I have learnt so much through this process. Sometimes, when I look back at some of my most vulnerable moments, I was super earnest and sometimes that’s just cringeworthy, where you’re like, ‘Oh why did I do that?’ But this was a time when I was in a lot of pain.”
She added: “I think Chris and I are very like-minded and that we really were disappointed that our marriage wasn’t going to work, and we weren’t going to have the thing where you’re married to the parent of your children for the rest of your lives.”
Paltrow said her friends are beginning to accept "conscious uncoupling" as her safe new term for divorce.
“People are coming around. I know it’s a dorky term, but it’s very worthwhile. I’m always the person who gets s--t at first, but then later people say, ‘Hey, maybe that’s a good idea,” she said in an interview.
