The more I experience it, the more it becomes apparent to me that we're not meant to live as couples, sharing space. Solitude provides self knowledge; a chance to be master of your fate. It clears the head because your thoughts aren't constantly being thwarted by interruptions. One's mind functions better not having to grapple with someone else's moods, preferences, anger, schedules. etc. Not to mention the unnerving that results in fighting over these things. Calm, peacefulness is such a blessing. I think I've gained a few years in life expectancy. Life's just too complicated without negotiating every little thing.
