Open marriage if you’re not fussed on having sex with your partner but fancy making love with somebody else. 🤣

Separate houses, next door to each other.

aggie - I was having coffee one day with a friend who’s marriage was a disaster. She told me he’d started running 10 miles a day - so I replied that by the end of a week, the bastard would be 70 miles away. A man nearby must have been listening and laughed so much, he nearly choked on his drink.

Separate as well as joint interests
Share the household chores

Well, didn’t the Queen and Prince Philip live in separate houses for years until the pandemic?

Don’t worry, it wasn’t exciting.
It was just promoting a blog smile

Live 150 miles apart but commute & stay awhile as & when. Works a treat. Headspace & room to breath. 😍
