They were together for 4 years before marrying in September 2018, yet they have quite a unique approach to their relationship.
A few months ago, Gwyneth talked about their living situation to The Sunday Times, saying, “All my married friends say that the way we live sounds ideal and we shouldn’t change a thing.”
The actress even has an “intimacy coach” who recommended the couple maintain different residences as a way to keep things “fresh.”
Now, it appears the unique married couple have finally moved in together, though they have some fears about how this will affect their sex life.
The couple were recently interviewed by Harper’s Bazaar, and talked about their marriage, with Brad gushing that he “can’t believe” he’s married to the stunning The Politician actress.
Brad told the publication, “She’s stunning and she’s charming and she’s completely disarming. We had similar enough backgrounds – a little bit Jewish, a little bit East Coast, her dad was a TV producer – and so we just sort of developed this really lovely friendship.”
Brad is a co-creator on the show Glee and met Gwyneth on set in 2014. Gwyneth guest-starred as Holly Holiday on four episodes during the second season, and developed a relationship with Brad behind the scenes.
Earlier in 2014, Gwyneth and her ex-husband, Coldplay front man Chris Martin, announced they were “conciously uncoupling” after 10 years of marriage. Thanks to their divorce we now have new vocabulary to add to our breakup vernacular.
Brad had also split with his wife Suzanne Bukinik just a year before. So, perhaps the new way of going about marriage will work for Brad and Gwyneth now that they’re on their second tries?
Gwyneth claimed during the Harper’s Bazaar interview that her and Brad’s sex life might not be the same now that they have finally shacked up together, over a year after getting married.
She joked, “so our sex life is over.” She has claimed her friends envied the fact that her and Brad didn’t live together, claiming, “I thought it was really interesting how resonant that was for people. One of my best friends was like, ‘That is my dream. Don’t ever move in.'”
The actress believes having separate homes keeps the mystery alive in their relationship explaining, “I think it certainly helps with preserving mystery and also preserving the idea that this person has their own life. So this is something I’m trying to remain aware of now as we merge together.”
It will be interesting to see where this couple goes in the future now that they’ve finally “merged together” and will live as a married couple under the same roof. Let’s hope they stay consciously coupled and continue to have a good sex life.
