Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin introduced millions of readers to the term "conscious uncoupling" when the actress and musician used it to describe their separation after a decade of marriage Tuesday.
The movie star broke the news of her breakup via her own Goop blog, which crashed due to high traffic. In addition to using the term as the headline, she and Coldplay frontman also cited it as part of their plea for media privacy, saying, "We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."
