So with Valentine’s Day tomorrow, I was feeling a little pensive last night.
I’m currently Valentine-free. But as I did some math, let’s say I were to stay single until I’m 40 (note – that is not my plan, and it’s still years off, but let’s just saaaaay) – assuming my future significant other and I are blessed with good health, we could live well into our 80’s (or beyond). So that would still be FORTY years together. That’s a long time.
And the thing about getting together once you’ve already created and established your own life is that it can make it that much harder to give up and adjust to ‘couple’ life. Which is why it makes sense that older couples especially are starting a new trend – being a couple, but living separately. Like, forever.
What do you think?
