She says that this arrangement works for them because it gives each one of them the privacy they so much desire.
“Right now we live in a building that has three units. So I live on the top floor and Jay lives on the first floor. And so there’s a couple that live in between us. So where we live together, we’re at the same address except I’m unit three and he’s unit one.
“We don’t really want to change anything, because I like my space and I have my schedule and he likes his space and he has his schedule but I can take the elevator down in my slippers and hang out a little bit and go back up. I would recommend it to any couple that feels the same way.”
