And finally, he offered advice to other men who've caused pain in their marriages: "You have to acknowledge the pain and you have to let that person have their say," said the father of three. "You have to get on the floor, get on the mattress and you have to really work through it. And really be honest. It takes a while. It's hard. It's difficult to hear, difficult to stay, it's difficult to listen to that sort of pain — but you have to be strong enough to go through that."
Expect Gwyneth Paltrow's second wedding to be a small event. "I think I'm [too] old to have a big wedding and a big ol' white dress and all that.

Gwyneth also opened up about co-parenting with her ex-husband, Chris Martin: "It's been really a process to get to the point where we can all be together and luckily I have a deeply loving ex-husband who's very open-minded, and we've been able to create something. It's for the kids. You don't want your kids to suffer," she said. "Obviously if I could have stayed married to the father of my kids, that's kind of the dream, but it didn't work out for me. So you have to adapt and learn, learn your lessons and move on, and that's what we're trying to do." But despite her claims that she wants a small affair with Brad, she admits she can't wait to walk down the aisle again. "I'm excited about everything!" she told PeopleStyle in a report published on Jan. 31. She then referenced the fact that she and Chris had eloped without any family members present. "I've never had a wedding before," she added. "So even though I'm 45, I sort of feel like a 21 year old."

There is power in knowing your value… I know myself better now. I know what I want and what I deserve." What she wants, apparently, is Dawes singer Taylor Goldsmith, who became her fiance in 2017.

I always felt that I wanted to invest more. I love him and I think he's brilliant. I'm sure I annoy him. He annoys me sometimes. I'm enormously proud of the person he is."
