When Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin ‘consciously uncoupled’ way back in 2014, we all scoffed.
“Yeah, right,” we said. “Conscious uncoupling. As if that’s going to work.”
But two years on and we’re eating our words: the celebrity couple is often seen together looking very amicable. Happy, even. And perhaps with this precedence in mind, we all became a little less convinced that breakups had to be the gut-wrenching, awful, hideous experiences that we accepted them to be.
And if we weren’t already convinced, Erin and Jen Kyna might just finish the job.
• we are complete • On Friday night, Jen and I had the most beautiful completion ceremony, to mark the end of our 12 years together, and our 10 years of marriage. The day we became Kyna’s, we became family for life. You have been the greatest gift in this life, my darling Jen. You loved me back to life. I am so grateful, so damn grateful, for everything we have created, experienced, and achieved together. This is not an ending. This is a beginning of something new, a new way of loving and supporting each other, as best friends, not partners, and a new way of learning about ourselves in the world. I am so proud of us baby. So proud of who we have become, and how we’ve chosen to do this, with open hearts and a commitment to love. Thank you for the greatest gift I’ve ever received in this life: being loved by you. I love you, my bestie. Kyna’s for life ????????
The former flight attendants have been together for 12 years, and married for a decade. When they married in 2006, they adopted the last name ‘Kyna’, meaning ‘kin’.
This February, they split up. But rather than fall down the wormhole of ugly divorce proceedings, the couple decided to try a different tack – yesterday, they posted about their ‘completion ceremony’ online.
“We are complete,” started the post.
