Months after her wedding, Gwyneth Paltrow is opening up on her “fantastic” marriage with Brad Falchuk!
In WSJ. magazine’s December/January issue, Gwyneth shared, “I feel like we are probably better equipped to choose our life partner when we are halfway through life. But generally, we have to pick our spouses a lot earlier because of the whole procreation piece... For me it has been more of a process, and so I feel really lucky to have met this person who is an incredible, true partner.”
Despite their marriage, Gwyneth and Brad are still taking it slow, they haven’t even moved in together. She explained, “We are still doing it in our own way. With teenage kids, you’ve got to tread lightly. It’s pretty intense, the teenage thing. I’ve never been a stepmother before. I don’t know how to do it.”
Paltrow also addressed the negativity surrounding her “conscious uncoupling” with ex-husband Chris Martin. She revealed, “I was so raw. It was so hard to be getting a divorce and letting go of this dream, and the public stuff was super painful. I wanted to see if we could check our pain and egos at the door and remember what we love about each other and be a family for these kids. What I didn’t understand at the time was, I think there’s a message in that, which is, ‘If you don’t do it this way, you’re hurting your kids.’”
