Gwyneth Paltrow is getting real about her marriage. In a new interview with The Sunday Times, the 46-year-old actress and Goop founder revealed that she and husband Brad Fachuck only live together four days out of the week.
Since marrying the 48-year-old TV producer in September, Paltrow has kept their relationship somewhat private. But now, she’s opening up about their living arrangements and how it keeps them functioning at their best. According to the Times interview, Paltrow’s intimacy coach told her that the arrangement gives their marriage “polarity.” It’s unclear what that means exactly, but a little bit balance is never a bad thing in any kind of relationship.
“Oh, all my married friends say that the way we live sounds ideal and we shouldn’t change a thing,” Paltrow, 46, told the publication.

In honor of our @goopmen launch, I want to shout out some of the most special men in my life (we also named our inaugural G. Label Men’s after them). @bradfalchuk @rstrauss16 @danldees @tleness @miguel_tied @tonywoods7 #jakepaltrow. Follow @goopmen and sign up for the newsletter at goop.com. From now on, we will have a Men tab on our site as well as a monthly newsletter devoted to you—from health to travel to an occasional circadian-rhythm-supporting lightbulb. We’re kicking it off with a special newsletter edited by our great friends and goopfellas podcast cohosts, chef Seamus Mullen and functional medicine practitioner Dr. Will Cole. We’re also launching G. Label Men—a collection of quality classic knits made in Italy. So ask yourself: Are you crystal-curious? And even if you’re not—are you, simply, curious? About the world, how to fit into it, what it means to live in 2019. We all get a little lost. We all wrestle our own shifting paradigms. We all want to grow and be present in our lives. Guidance from a clinical nutritionist, a psychotherapist, an intuitive, even a travel guide to the best adventure escapes can be an awfully welcome thing when you’re searching for some grounding. goop doesn’t claim to have all the answers, but we’re pretty committed to looking for them. Besides, men can make cookies with avocados instead of butter, too. Let’s not put people in boxes. So click on stuff, read stuff—fuck it, go on a cleanse. You deserve it. And most of all, welcome to goop. Love, GP
Paltrow’s nontraditional marriage doesn’t come as too much of a shock. After she and Falchuck married, they honeymooned in the Maldives with their respective children — and her ex-husband of 11 years, Chris Martin.
The whole situation might seem a bit strange to the average married couple. But hey, if it works, it works.
