(Newser) – Gwyneth Paltrow continues to paint the sunniest of pictures of her post-conscious-uncoupling life with Chris Martin, but the description she gives Glamour in a new interview may be the most interesting one so far. "We're still very much a family, even though we don't have a romantic relationship. He's like my brother," she says, explaining that the two of them and their two kids still spend quite a bit of time together, even staying in one another's houses and spending holidays together (not to mention collaborating on songs together).

"The ideal is to stay married. But if you can't stay married, wouldn't the ideal be that you could still be a family and you could put aside your own stuff long enough to explore—what is this new family and who am I in it?" Paltrow muses. "And Chris is a great ex-husband 'cause he's a very, very willing partner in how to do that." She adds that, though she's "very independent," she does see the value in having a husband, and though she's not quite divorced yet, she could perhaps see herself getting married again someday.
