Massachusetts residents probably remember back in March when Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband, Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin, announced that they were "consciously uncoupling."
Since then, we haven't heard much about how their divorce is proceeding.
That's why we took note of a recent interview Martin gave to a Los Angeles radio station. In the interview, Martin said he and Paltrow are no longer together (and intimated that they do not plan to reunite), but also said they remain "very close" and there remains "a lot of love" between the couple.
What is interesting here is that it shows that not all divorces are the protracted, emotionally devastating affairs you hear horror stories about.
As family law attorneys, we know from experience that many couples, like Martin and Paltrow, end their marriages respectfully. The partners are able to retain their consideration for one another, and the entire process is smooth, reasonable and manageable. The very act of separating from someone you once loved can be difficult, but there is no reason it must be more difficult than necessary.
