So this is what "conscious uncoupling" looks like!
Gwyneth Paltrow, 42, and her estranged husband Chris Martin, 38, were the model ex-couple on the beach in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico this week. Gwyneth was snapped looking svelte in a skimpy black bikini while the Coldplay frontman hid his skin from the sun in a hat and long-sleeved shirt.
The two, who announced their split in March 2014, enjoyed a vacation with their children Apple, 10, and Moses, 8.
It's vacations like this that seem to have been a part of Gwyneth and Martin's plan all along. Gwyneth posted to her Goop website after the breakup, explaining how they planned to remain amicable as exes.
"There are no bad guys, just two people, each playing teacher and student respectively. When we understand that both are actually partners in each other's spiritual progress, animosity dissolves much quicker and a new paradigm for conscious uncoupling emerges, replacing the traditional, contentious divorce," Gwyneth wrote. "It's only under these circumstances that loving co-parenting can happen. It's conscious uncoupling that prevents families from being broken by divorce and creates expanded families that continue to function in a healthy way outside of traditional marriage."
