Distance becomes the norm

Once living together, the couple who didn’t cohabitate before marriage might just have a dynamic now of hiding things, and putting on a façade. They’re never fully themselves, so they never really discover how compatible they are (or aren’t). They get by, with everyone putting on the face they must put on to make the marriage work. They’re used to putting on a perfect face, because they lived separate for so long.
