It's no secret that Oscar-winning actor, Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin had parted ways, back in 2014. Even after Gwyneth tied the knot again in 2018, she was still close friends with Chris. Thus, the term 'conscious uncoupling' was coined. She explained, “I just thought, I wonder if there's a way to circumvent that and just go directly to the point where we're friends. We're family, that's it. We can pretend we're not, and hate each other ... or, let's try to reinvent this for ourselves.” She admitted that she had faced a lot of backlash for the now infamous term, as it may have been 'too early in the culture' and offended many going through acrimonious divorces.
