Celebrity Divorce: Trying to Uncouple Consciously
Recently, a celebrity couple famously announced their preferred method of divorce is conscious uncoupling. The media watches this divorce as it unfolds.
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow and musician Chris Martin announced their separation in a now well-known blog statement about conscious uncoupling. From their statement and the essay that follows it, the couple seems intent on civility and respect as they part ways—and assets.
For even amicable couples, divorce is a challenge. The aim of Ms. Paltrow and Mr. Martin to keep their split respectful is a credit to them and important to the two children from their ten-year marriage.
This couple has the same concerns as others who divorce. They must make agreements about splitting their property and parenting time, and come to agreement about spousal support. However, the marital estate of this couple is sizable:
- Ms. Paltrow and Mr. Martin are worth about $180 million each.
- The couple owns five residences around the world, including a $14 million Malibu home they may share after their divorce.
Since 2008, rumors of the infidelity of Ms. Paltrow and an impending split have dogged the couple. Rarely seen in public together, the couple remained quiet until Mr. Martin spoke in a BBC interview about the challenges faced during his marriage.
In any divorce, strong legal counsel protects your rights and your future. While remaining conscious and respectful is always the goal, sometimes good efforts fall short.
