More couples are now living apart

A growing number of couples live in separate houses, partly because they fear "rushing" into moving in together, or because they have too many of their own possessions, a new study shows.

A survey of 2,000 adults by Halifax Home Insurance showed one in 20 long-term couples lived in different homes, a 40% increase over the past decade.

Martyn Foulds, senior claims manager at Halifax Home Insurance, said: "A valued sense of independence appears to be the main reason that couples are now taking longer to move in together."
