What if psychologists ruled the world? In real life?

Living together apart (LTA) on the increase


Living together apart (the topic of my first post on this blog) has increased by 40% over the last ten years.

According to Halifax Home Insurance and there are now a million such relationships – or 1 in 20 couples with almost 1 in 5 of these “live-apart-ners” 35 or older.

The main reason they say they do it is because they have too many possessions to fit under one roof.

The survey also found that couples were now more cautious, waiting almost 2 years after first dating before they moved in together, and it was usually the men who delayed more.
