Going through a divorce can be hard. For those who don't live their lives in the spotlight, having to not only accept the end of a marriage, but also explain the termination to friends, family, and children, can be especially difficult. But when you are a celebrity, you often have to explain yourself to the entire world. It is no wonder then why super-actress Gwyneth Paltrow chooses to refer to her pending divorce in more favorable terms.
As Paltrow and husband Chris Martin prepare to legally divorce, she has decided to ditch the term 'divorce' in favor of the new age-ish term 'conscious uncoupling.' This interesting term was reportedly created by therapist Katherine Woodward, and is meant to signify a release of the negative energy and trauma that many people experience during the divorce process. As such, a conscious uncoupling is meant to be a good thing, a time to heal and start anew.
Let's hope that the entire divorce process goes as smoothly as possible for Paltrow and her soon-to-be ex-husband. The famed actresfs and Coldplay rocker have a couple of children together, and have to experience this especially difficult time in front of the world. Perhaps their process of uncoupling will make the division of their multi-million dollar estate less contentious than it may otherwise have been.
