In the September issue of British VogueGwyneth Paltrow wrote about how her “deliberate disconnection” with an “ex” – aka Chris Martin – went viral. And although the term was widely ridiculed on the Internet when she wrote about it Goop In 2014, Paltrow stated that she did not necessarily regret using the correct phrase.
“It’s very different for each couple, but for me it mostly meant being responsible for my own part in the breakup,” said Paltrow. “There were aspects of myself that I was trying to heal through this relationship that I was not honest about. I was blind, sheltered, invulnerable, intolerant. I had to admit that and be brave enough to share it. “
Paltrow also described the day she knew their marriage was over. It happened during a 2010 trip that she and Martin took to Italy for her 38th birthday, four years before they announced their divorce. “I don’t remember what day of the weekend it was or what time of day,” she wrote when she realized the love was gone. “But I knew — in spite of long walks and long deck chairs, large glasses of Barolo, and held hands — that my marriage was over.”
