My innocence has been shattered: Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow are splitting up after 10 years. If those two can’t make it, what hope is there for the rest of us?
All kidding aside, it would be easy to mock this situation as another typical Hollywood marriage that was doomed because all Hollywood marriages are doomed. And maybe they are, but that shouldn’t strip these people of their humanity.
For instance, Martin – the frontman for Coldplay – has been trying to balance his growing fame with being married to an even more famous person, who works in a town that chews up and spits out souls like so much cheap gum.

Let’s see what the Twitterverse has to say about the split.
Fair warning: Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are breaking up, so now Coldplay songs might be a little slow and self-indulgent.
