Consumer Reports

Latest dumb trend is “living alone together” | The "House and Home" section of the New York Times proudly announced an exciting international trend in "committed relationships," identifying millions of people who choose to express their love by "living alone together."

These so-called L.A.T. couples, celebrated by trendy psychologists and sociologists, don't want to make the compromises in decorating and other issues required to occupy the same house. Instead, they discover that "separate addresses provide a pressure valve for long term relationships" — as the Times explained in its sub-head.

Of course this approach utterly abandons the traditional idea that building a home with a partner and sharing all aspects of life can make you a better a person.

The irony is that the same liberal establishment that insists that heterosexual couples don't need to marry, or even share a home, to find happiness, simultaneously argues that homosexual couples can only achieve truly significant relationships if government sanctions their marriages.
