I have a husband but if he left or — god forbid — died, there’s no way I’d want another man in my house. As it is, we got a big house and staked off territories! Kitchen, bedroom and dining room are shared. We each have our own “sitting room/den.,” and we’re compatible. But no way could anyone run at me fast enough to get me to live with another man if this one was gone. I love solitude and owning my own space!
