PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The relationship is over, so what’s next? Many believe a clean break helps them move forward.

“Out of sight, out of mind,” said Jess.

So it’s no surprise the reaction folks are having about Gwyneth Paltrow’s honeymoon. She went on her honeymoon with her new husband Brad Falchuk and brought her ex-husband Chris Martin along.

“I don’t think I could ever stand seeing someone I was dating date someone else,” said one woman.

When CBS3 told people about Paltrow’s honeymoon, the responses included, “That’s weird,” “That’s like me bringing my girlfriend and my ex on a date together,” “It doesn’t work like that,” “What do you think would happen if you did that,” and “You’d have two ex-girlfriends.”

In a recent interview, the actress says she went with her ex, her current husband and their kids to the Maldives. She calls it the modern honeymoon.

“She can call it what she wants. It’s one man, one woman. Period,” said a man.

Dr. George James is a senior therapist with the Council for Relationships and says Paltrow’s decision is unique.

“That does sound new,” said Dr. James. “I’m not really surprised by much, that does sound surprising.”

But, James says couples have tried to stay in touch after a divorce, especially if they have children together. Many even stay friends.

James says the key is to over-communicate.

“There has to be a lot of clear communication and honesty because it’s easy for someone in that trio to be jealous or to be nervous about what’s really going on,” said Dr. James.

For some, that’s easier said than done.

      Sorry Joe, but you are the sick person here. Paltro and her Ex, are joined at the hip because of their kids. You would have them have a hostile relationship, while they seem to be having an open cooperative one.

      I commend them.

      I laugh at you.

  5. Dave Johnson says:

    No doubt for a threesome, so she can show off those liberal values she is so proud of.

      “No doubt for a threesome” – Dave Johnson

      Doubtful, but maybe. Who cares? As long as the children are cared for, and healthy and vaccinated.

      My expectation is that the genetic father can look after the kids while the newlyweds can have some private time together.

      Sounds perfect to me.

  6. Perhaps they are all sleeping together….stranger things have happened. Paltrow always tries to PUSH the envelope! And who cares, really?

      “Perhaps they are all sleeping together” – Livinthedream

      Perhaps you are sleeping with your mother.

      Isn’t speculating about other people’s sex lives fun?

  7. Renita Pedro says:

    Their business and with all the crazy babysitters killings, can’t blame em! …They’ll forever be link due to the kids. I’m sure they stay in different hotel rooms and did separate things with the kids! ..

  8. Sounds like she just brought him to look after the kids. No big deal.

  9. Tony Smith says:

    There’s no way she has hidden assets that are worth her baggage.

  10. Nikki Sweaks Renfroe says:

    1. Plarp Zootie says:
