But who said it? You can live together while not living together and a relationship can be just as strong with two huts! Let's find out what are the advantages of having two separate houses and a relationship, also because here's what happens when you go to live together, look:
1. Live together when you really feel like it
If you live together in many circumstances, you are forced to be together even when you need a moment of solitude.

Living alone is often a complicated thing: your washing machines, what to cook for yourself, the shopping to do, where, how and when all alone.

This includes all the small daily choices, including those of furniture. This individual premise could be an excellent springboard for a more solid and conscious shared future.
3. Learn to respect the space of others, remaining independent
If you have two houses, it is very easy to understand the other's need for solitude, freedom and independence. Respect is the basis of the idea that one wants to have not a room, but a life all to oneself, to share.

Let's say you have tenants and he doesn't, you can choose whether to stay in company or not. Whether to stay in the house with the balcony or the one with the terrace, whether to stay in the house in the center or on the outskirts. In short: having two separate houses in pairs, is equivalent to having TWO houses, therefore in many occasions, a DOUBLE choice. And it doesn't look too bad, no.
5. Be free to live single
Having your own home is synonymous with doing what you want. If you want to leave your clothes lying around, your shoes everywhere, don't change the sheets, free. If you want to implement your thousand paranoia about cleaning on the contrary, free. In short: a life for two in a container for one, where you can maintain that margin of freedom to do what you want, without having to give too much (but always a minimum) weight to what those around you want. Free.
