London: Actress Gwyneth Paltrow says her marriage to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin is not always easy and they always work hard to maintain their relationship.
The Oscar-winning actress married Martin seven years back.
"Sometimes it`s hard being with someone for a long time. We go through periods that aren`t all rosy. I always say, life is long and you never know what`s going to happen," femalefirst.co.uk quoted the 38-year-old as saying.
The actress further said that if the couple ever plan to split, then it would be amicable because they have a lot of respect for each other.
"If, God forbid, we were ever not to be together, I respect him so much as the father of my children. I made such a good choice. He`s such a good dad. You can never be relaxed or smug and think, `I`ve got this thing`," she said.
