Married Couples Who Live Apart: Separate But AwesomeAnna North6/24/10 4:30pmFiled to: Cohabitation conversationsMarriageHousesHomesLiving SpaceTodd fosterSandra fosterNew York TimescohabitationSeparate living space325EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkMarried couple Sandra and Todd Foster live in separate houses on the same property. Their profile in the Times verges on obnoxion (Todd's "man-cave??") — but their arrangement actually sounds pretty awesome.Back in 2008, Helena Bonham-Carter said of her two-home marriage to Tim Burton, "to me it makes complete sense: if you've got some money, and you can afford it, why not have your own space?" But the Fosters actually don't have much money — Todd is currently out of work, and the home they share is a trailer. Each, however, also has a personal space. For Todd, that would be a "man-cave" — a shed with a TV, cooking supplies, and what the Times's Joyce Wadler implies are some butt-ugly baby pheasants. And for Sandra, it's a cottage that looks like a grownup dollhouse, complete with "lavender blush white petunias in a window box and lace curtains." Inside, Sandra's cottage looks like a wedding cake — and Todd is apparently the kind of guy who collects tractors. Gender stereotypes aside, these do seem like a pair who could use separate spheres.
