conscious uncoupling

"We just didn't quite fit," the actor said of being in a relationship with the Coldplay musician.
"By consciously uncoupling, my ex and I have been able to maintain our family unit and allow it to grow in ways that is best for each of us."
The '80s pop star dished on their supposed feud on 'Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen."
The actress’ take on the “consciously uncouple” backlash is … interesting.
The stakes are high here for this couple to have a good divorce--not only for the two actors and their six children but also for a culture that takes its cues from stars.
Many of us struggle with painful patterns in our romantic relationships, playing out our disappointing story over and over again. Men always leave. Women don't want me. No one ever asks me out. We think there is something fundamentally wrong with us that is keeping us single.
There are no statistics for couples living "consciously uncoupled" in America. But it's about being true to ourselves and teaching our kids to follow their own path, not someone else's idea of how we should live our lives.
