Not living together was the secret of Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter to keep their relationship alive for many years

Nothing is written in matters of love. Each couple sets their own rules and decides how they want to deal with certain issues such as the possibility of having children, fidelity, and even coexistence. For some, living together is one of the most beautiful things in a relationship. Waking up with the other and sharing day to day is what makes the couple grow. But for others, living together can be a big headache, which only brings arguments and makes each one’s personal space smaller.

For example, when British actress Helena Bonham Carter and film director Tim Burton were in a relationship for 13 years and chose to live with their two children in a house divided into three parts connected by corridors. They did not live together at all; they had “separate territories”. In the London home the actress lived in one part; Tim, in another; and her children with a nanny in a third. All sites were interconnected with each other.

“I see all the sense in the world. I don’t find anything strange about it. If you can afford it, why don’t you have your own space?” Said the actress, adding: “Our relationship works because each one He has his personal space.”

In addition, she explained that they were able to solve sleeping problems together: “I speak, he snores. And also my husband suffers from insomnia so he has to watch television until he falls asleep and I need silence.”

This election is not something new. There are many couples who chose and today also choose not to live together, like the French writers Jean Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir.
