Many celebrity couples live and spend time apart and say space has helped their relationship, could the same be true for the rest of us?
"It does recharge you. I think it adds a little spark back to the relationship," Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon, who travels a great deal for work and often spends time away from his wife, says. He notes that he and his wife are both very independent and do not mind spending time alone.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork notes that some couples have separate houses in the same town and he says while he respects this choice, it would not work for him.
For couples who do not have the luxury of having two sperate homes, clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho suggests each partner should have their own designated space where they can retreat and spend alone time.
"Having independence and your own identity is very important in a healthy relationship," she notes, explaining that people need to have separate friends and separate hobbies.
