Pull yourself out of that Kapotasana and stash the eye-dropper of psilocybin juice for another day, Gwyneth Paltrow’s invented a new aspirational lifestyle enhancement that’s bound to sweep the nation. It’s called Co-Disenhabiting (or will be. I will let Gwyn use that one, for a small fee) and for the minimal expense and inconvenience of owning a second home, you and your significant other can live in separate houses while maintaining the facade of a happy marriage. Gwyneth and her husband Brad Falchuck only spend four nights a week together. And according to Gwyneth, all her married friends are green with envy.
The Independent reports:
Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed she doesn’t live with her husband of seven months, Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk – at least not full-time.
In fact, the two spend just four nights a week together at the Goop founder’s home.
For the remaining three nights, Falchuk sleeps at his own house with his children, Brody and Isabella, who he had with his first wife, producer Suzanne Bukinik.
Speaking to The Sunday Times’ Style, Paltrow explained the setup works perfectly for the couple and is even a source of envy among her friends.
“Oh, all my married friends say that the way we live sounds ideal and we shouldn’t change a thing,” she said.
Since we know Gwyneth’s not one to try something, let alone recommend it, without first having put it through rigorous scientific testing, those considering if Co-Disenhabiting is right for you will be happy to know it’s received the stamp of approval from Gwyneth’s very own personal “intimacy teacher”, Michaela Boehm. Michaela, who’s helped spiritually tune up Will Smith, says that Gwyneth and Brad’s Co-Disenhabing journey gives their relationship “polarity”. Personally, I’ve always had good luck achieving polarity in my marriage by passive aggressively slamming shut the cabinet doors my husband always leaves open. But that’s because we’re regular uggos who never even considered inviting our sibling lovers to join us on our honeymoon.
But Co-Disenhabiting does seem like a real win-win. Brad gets to save his sanity by maintaining a residence where he’s allowed to keep a couple of beers and maybe some Gatorade in the refrigerator, and Gwyneth gets to add another couple of years to their marriage before the inevitable Conscientious Dis-Co-Disenhabiting occurs.
