heart grow fonder.”
Lots of people tell us they can’t imagine our life of constant togetherness as we live, travel, and work together around the world.
That might be true, but let’s imagine the opposite.
Can you imagine maintaining your relationship while living in separate houses?
Many couples do this for practical reasons, like work, but we’re talking to a couple today who did it to save their marriage.
After 23 years Lise and her husband were headed for a divorce when they decided to make a last-ditch attempt to make it work. Seven years later, they’re still going strong with two separate house keys.
Want to hear how they do it? So did we!
