Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin Separate — Why is she Unlikable?

Written by , Posted in General

20140401-164851.jpgGwyneth Paltrow has long struggled with her likability, and her divorce announcement fanned the flames. While she might attribute the prickly reaction to a heartless public, this code is easy to crack. Paltrow didn’t just announce her split, she published an accompanying article on her GOOP website explaining the term, “conscious uncoupling,” in depth. In fact, there’s so much depth I nearly fell asleep on paragraph four. Read a select gem below.

The truth is, the only thing any of us have is today. Beyond that, there are no guarantees. The idea of being married to one person for life is too much pressure for anyone. In fact, it would be interesting to see how much easier couples might commit to each other by thinking of their relationship in terms of daily renewal instead of a lifetime investment. This is probably the reason why so many people say their long-term relationships changed overnight, once they got married. The people didn’t change, but the expectation did.

The REAL truth is, relationships are private. There’s no formula for its success, and there’s certainly no formula for its failure. It’s easy to malign the institution merely because your personal marriage ended, but it’s also arrogant. To assume you have any inside awareness of an objective relationship truth, is obnoxious. I’m surprised Gwyneth’s team didn’t get their hands on this in time to block it. It’s ridiculous.
