Whatever happens, they can’t miss brunch.
I don’t know about other children of divorced parents, but post-divorce, my family did not go out for brunch together on Sundays.
In fact, we never went out to brunch together, ever. My brother and I ate Vegemite toast and watched cartoons on weekends. I have no idea what my parents did. Slept in like normal people?
If you’re Apple and Moses Martin, though, and your parents have engaged in the most amicable split of all time, you can have your brunch, and you’ll probably be able to eat it without someone hurling their eggs across the room.
Gwyneth Paltrow, 42, says she and her ex-husband Chris Martin, 38, have always prioritised their children — and that means that even if they can’t stand the sight of each other, they still go out for brunch as a family.
Paltrow was the keynote speaker at the #BlogHer15 conference in New York on Friday and she was candid about her domestic situation.
“It’s been hard, and we’ve gone through really difficult times, but we’ve always said these children are our priority,” Paltrow said.
“What that really means is even though today you hate me and you never want to see me again, we’re going to brunch because it’s Sunday and that’s what we do.”
She’s been seeing producer Brad Falchuk, 44, since last year, while Martin has been on-off involved with actress and crap tattoo-haver Jennifer Lawrence, 24.
Paltrow was very eager (too eager?) to point out that despite sometimes hating each other, she actually thinks her ex is an all-round great guy.
“We’re really good friends, I really like him, he’s great,” she said. OK, Gwynnie, we believe you! Go eat your egg-white omelette.
