Her husband spends most of the nights at his own place and travels to Paltrow’s home in Los Angeles for the remaining days of the week.

Contrary to everyone’s assumption about their unconventional living arrangement, Paltrow says that spending time apart keeps the spark alive in their marriage. Moreover, both parties are satisfied with the arrangement because it suits their busy schedules.

The Advice

According to a relationship expert, Paltrow and Falchuk’s arrangement is an effective method to keep their relationship fresh in the long run. The experts claim that since they do not see each other 24-7, the distance keeps the two longing for each other’s company.

Paltrow said all of their married friends approved of their arrangement and they said they shouldn't change a thing about it.

The Consideration

Paltrow also adds one major factor of their arrangement is the kids. The couple decided to keep their homes separate in order to spend some quality time with their children.

Falchuk gets to bond and spends some quality time with his kids from his previous relationships. Meanwhile, Paltrow takes this time apart to attend to her kids’ needs, especially since they’re now teenagers.

The actress reveals it’s difficult for her to supervise them now that they’re transitioning into adulthood and have become a lot more rebellious. She now has to deal with their teenage tantrums and guide them through this transition to the best of her ability.

While Paltrow says their living arrangement works for them, she realizes it may not work for other couples. The actress recommends you need to discuss things with your partner as you agree for your living arrangement.

If both of you are okay with separate homes, then go for it. If not, Paltrow says it’s better for you and your partner to live together under one roof.
