Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin Went On Vacation Together After They Consciously Uncoupled

How do you consciously uncouple? We've been trying to figure that one out — do you do it with kindness and kale chips? Apparently, you consciously uncouple by going on vacation with your ex! Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin just went on a vacation together, in what some are calling a "break-up moon." The rest of us are calling it "confusing."

The two apparently sojourned off to the island Eleuthera (which incidentally means "freedom" — ha! Like freedom from a former relationship!) in the Bahamas to escape the hotbed of attention they rightfully assumed they'd be swamped with after they announced their conscious uncoupling/separation/split/whatever.

But rest assured, this is not a romantic getaway, it very well just may be a part of the GOOPy, alls-well-that-ends-well break up philosophy; the two took their kids, Apple, 9, and Moses, 7, along for the trip specifically in order to escape the madness. After all, divorce is tough on kids — just how imagine how tough conscious uncoupling is!

Apparently, the four looked pretty happy when they were spotted together as a family, but when the former Mr. and Mrs. Martin were spotted alone, things seemed a tad on the tense side (as one would expect when a marriage falls apart). It's obvious that they're trying to do things in an amicable fashion for the kids, but we're not privy to exactly how amicable things are for the two of them, even though "beach vacation" does suggest "pretty darn amicable."
