Seems doable to me, OP. Some couples have separate bedrooms because they want their space; having separate houses is just further out on the same continuum. I like having my man around, so separate residences would work for us, but some people do it.

Because marriage is not the same thing as dating. Marriage is the solemn, public commitment to cherish and support another person above all others for the rest of your life. There's also the simple legal aspect in which you agree to be the other person's next of kin and all that entails.

I think it's great.

I'm a big fan of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera's house! It's ideal! A regular house with 2 master suites kind of works, too, but the kitchen is still shared...
I remember you showing that house before - such inspiration!

Otherwise, living separately, unless really close (and even so), is inconvenient to me. Too much hassle...
More of a hassle than living together?

I'm too old to live not knowing where my stuff is when I need it. As a creature of habit, I want my things around and familiar.

Oh, that's right - I forgot.

You're a "stuff" person ...

Yeah, most of us have personal belongings, as strange as it is to you!

I was looking at the sentimental aspect of it. Can’t see myself hugging my wife to tell her “goodnight” and then see her driving away to her house just like when I was dating her and then just go to my bed staring at the ceiling wondering if she’s cold or not. But hey, each couple does as they like.

Hey, it's your baggage - I'll wave when you walk by lugging it.
