Gwyneth and husband Brad have separate homes and stay together four nights a week

How do you make a marriage work?

Spending half your time apart could be the key, according to Gwyneth Paltrow.

The actress has revealed that she and her husband Brad Falchuk only stay together a few nights out of the week.

Gwyneth told The Sunday Times that she and Brad, whom she describes as "crazytown handsome" (ahhh) each have their own home in LA.

They spend four nights a week together as a couple, she said, and each put in three nights with their children from their previous marriages.

Gwyneth came up with the arrangement after consulting with her intimacy teacher, she continued, who advised her to create a "polarity" in her marriage.

“All my married friends say that the way we live sounds ideal and we shouldn't change a thing,” she said.

The deal was also designed to help make blending their families a little easier.

Gwyneth is mum to Apple and Moses while Brad is dad to Isabella and Brody.

Gwyneth and her kids' father Chris Martin "consciously uncoupled" in 2014 after ten years of marriage and have famously remained on good terms ever since.

Chris and his girlfriend Dakota Fanning even joined Gwyneth, Brad and their kids on a "family honeymoon" to the Maldives last year after they tied the knot.

"It was a very modern honeymoon,” Gwyneth said of the trip.

“We had a great time."

Each to their own and all that...
