I'm making a pillow and I have marked a seam in the center. When I unwrap with pressing U, instead of getting squares I'm getting a different result.

This is the uv result:

I tried smart uv

Why am I not getting just to equal squares? Any suggestion or Help

    $\begingroup$ Try going into top view and project form view. Also, remember to Apply the scale to your object in object mode before unwrapping. $\endgroup$

It appears that you had "Pinned" parts of the UV's. I removed the pinned UVs in the UV Editor ALT+P to Un-Pin. And in object mode as a matter of habit applied scale and rotation CTRL+A. Then back in the UV Editor keeping the seam you created unwrapped Press U and select "Unwrap" from the drop down menu.
