If you believe the tabloid rumors, Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow have been on the brink of divorce for about four years. Just months ago, several blogs even claimed that the two weren’t speaking to one another, and suggested that the relationship might once again, be nearing its end.
In an interview with Elle magazine, Paltrow addresses the rumors, and is extremely candid about the difficulties of the marriage. “Sometimes it’s hard being with someone for a long time,” the star admits. “We go through periods that aren’t all rosy.”
“I always say, life is long and you never know what’s going to happen. If, God forbid, we were ever not to be together, I respect him so much as the father of my children. Like, I made such a good choice. He’s such a good dad. You can never be relaxed or smug and think, I’ve got this thing. That’s also part of it—keeping yourself on your toes. I’m not going to take this for granted.”
It certainly sounds like a troubled relationship, but a relationship nonetheless. Hopefully, the tabloids will let nature run its course with this union, for better or worse.
