21.A man and a woman meet, fall in love, get married, and move in together under the same roof. This is the only way a marriage cam work, right? Not according to some surprising research, though. Studies have shown that an increasing number of married couples are living apart in what we called “commuter marriages.”
From 2000 to 2005, commuter marriages increased by 30% to 3.6 million. Take Dr. Laura Minikel and her husband, Bent Balle, for example. She lives and works in California, while he stays in Denmark. The two visit each other whenever their demanding careers allow. The divorce rate for these types of unions is no higher than that for conventional marriages. Researchers say these relationships work because each person keeps an idealized picture of their partner while they are away, forgetting their faults or shortcomings. Technologies such as Webcams and Skype have also made long-distance relationships all the easier.
Commuter marriages have also proven to be good news for employers. Employees who are married are often seen as being more stable. However, since in this case the person’s significant other is far away, the employees can also be married to their jobs. Sometimes this can help make up for the absence of the husband or wife.
