To live with one person side to side is a very hard reality, hence why those that created marriage soon realised the need to create divorce. For some people this usually isn’t much of an option, we call them twins. They are born together and in most cases stuck together.
Nevertheless, there are those that manage to survive their differences and put two and two together to get bye.
