As anyone who followed her “conscious uncoupling” saga knows, Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t one for conventional relationships. After separating from her first husband, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, the actress and Goop mogul remarried to Glee and American Horror Story co-creator Brad Falchuk—and the new couple spends a lot of time with Martin and his girlfriend, Dakota Johnson. Which, honestly, is kind of refreshing—who says you have to be mortal enemies with your ex? According to a new interview, the amicable relationship between the two couples isn’t the only unconventional aspect of Paltrow and Falchuk’s marriage.
In a recent interview with The Sunday Times, Paltrow shared that she and Falchuk don’t share a home together—full time, at least. Instead, he stays with her four nights a week; the rest of the week he spends at his own place.
Paltrow explained that divvying up their living space—literally—has been healthy for the marriage. Her intimacy teacher, Micaela Boehm, said the arrangement increases “polarity” in a long-term relationship, which sounds important.
Paltrow added that her friends approve of the situation too: “All my married friends say that the way we live sounds ideal,” she said.
Paltrow and Falchuk married last November in a private California ceremony. She shared many of the details of their wedding ceremony on Goop’s website the week after. (Where else?) They started dating in 2014.
