To each his own, and if it ‘ain’t broken, don’t fix it,’ right? Grammy nominees [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Blake Shelton[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Miranda Lambert[/lastfm] each have their own home, and marriage will not change that either!
I personally know someone, who did not move in with their spouse after getting married, and I thought it was kind of strange at the time. But it’s been over five years now, and my friend and her hubby are both very happy with their ‘separate living’ arrangements! My friend and her hubby, were both a bit older, and this was a second marriage for both of them, and they were both pretty set in their ways. What about a ‘younger couple’ who are of ‘childbearing age’…could this still work?
Miranda Lambert has revealed in an article in Ladies Home Journal, that she and Blake plan to keep their separate homes after their upcoming marriage too! Here’s what Miranda told LHJ:
She does not live with her fiancé — they each own farms six miles apart in rural Oklahoma. After Shelton’s divorce, in 2006, he left Nashville and moved back to his home state of Oklahoma. Lambert, still living with her parents in Texas three hours away, visited frequently, but the couple weren’t ready to merge their lives. The solution? Three years ago a friend showed Lambert a 700-acre farm nearby. “I fell in love with it but I wasn’t sure. I told Blake, ‘If I buy this farm and move away from everything I know, are you going to screw up?’ He said, ‘Buy the farm.’ So I did.”

She likes having two separate houses — “When Blake gets on my nerves, I can go home” — and expects they will continue to live this way even after they get married. “We hang out at one farm or the other, depending on the night,” she says, explaining that her place is decorated with “girly” things while his house features “dead animals” mounted on the walls. “It works for us.”
Do you and your spouse have separate homes…..and why does that work best for YOU?
