Some social media users did not agree with Leigh's opinion
@Sam_Baja shared a lengthy response:
"A person is projecting her parents experiences onto her own relationship expecting to experience happiness in her own relationships without asking her parents why they chose such a life. Why choose unhealthy intimacies habits while expecting meaningful relationships?"
"Mina nje it won't last even a year. I will move on if you don't like to be around me that means you don't love me."
"If you can't stand your partner for more than 3 days then you shouldn't marry him... this is a weird world we live, like 2 separate houses for married intimate spouses!"
Others wholeheartedly agree with Leigh and want to implement the same arrangement
"I see this working nicely. You'd be able to still keep a good social life, that time apart after misunderstandings goes a long way. It's a nice setup that needs alot, alot of trust with it."
"This is what I pray for. I'm not getting married until I find a man who will agree that we should live in separate houses."
"We have discussed this option with hubby for later on in life.There is absolutely nothing wrong with this arrangement I think it makes the hearts fonder."
