Since Gwyneth Paltrow announced her divorce using the term "conscious uncoupling,” she's got everyone wondering, what in the world is "conscious uncoupling?"
So what is conscious uncoupling?
It was created by Los Angeles based relationship expert Katherine Woodward-Thomas. On her website she describes it as, "A 5 week program to release the trauma of a breakup.” She teaches that divorce is not a failure and that it's no ones fault.
Bragar said, "There are no bad guys. You married someone you loved and respected. You made very deep commitments to that person."
Others aren't so sure about the new age concept. "'Conscious Uncoupling' is psychobabble for people who can't say D--I-V-O-R-C-E," writes an L.A. Times columnist who condemned conscious uncoupling as a "bogus science."
Lawyer Rosemarie Arnold told INSIDE EDITION with a fortune of $140 million dollars and custody of two children to work out, Paltrow and Martin will need good lawyers along with their new age counseling.
She said, "That's a new aged way of saying we're divorcing. You are real people and you have real children. You are going to have real issues when you are going to try and split up a family."
