"It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate," she wrote in a post titled, "Conscious Uncoupling."

"We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate," she added.

In September, Paltrow, told "Good Morning America" that hers was not always an easy marriage and to combat their "big ups and downs," she and Martin "laugh it out."

"So far we're sticking it out," she added.

Now, they're committed to raising their two kids, Apple, 9, and Moses, 7, in a loving environment.

"We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been," the post continued. "We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."
