In an October 2022 interview with Amanda Hirsch on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast, Kardashian opened up about life with her Blink-182 drummer husband and how they are planning to combine households — at some point.

"We're in the place where we're figuring out how to blend our households and our kids, and what life looks like now," Kardashian said. "For the most part we're getting those things in place. We do family dinner every Sunday night with all the kids at his house."

The couple still have their own houses and asked if there is a shared home in their future, Kardashian said, "There will be. We want our kids to feel really comfortable. They have both lived in their homes their whole lives for the most part, and just, they each have their rooms. We are a block away."

It took one year of marriage before the Goop founder moved in with her husband, but she had her reasons. In a profile in The Sunday Times it was revealed that Falchuk "spends three nights a week at his own house and four nights at Paltrow's Los Angeles home, an arrangement approved by her intimacy teacher as a means of keeping the relationship fresh."

Paltrow also told Jimmy Kimmel in an interview that their kids played a role in the decision. "I think, really, because we each have two teenage children whom we love very much, but we were just trying to be mindful and give them a little space and not move too quickly," she said.

Paltrow added that her friends were actually envious of their arrangement: "Oh, all my married friends say that the way we live sounds ideal and we shouldn't change a thing."

Tortorella and Meyers got married in March 2018, but tying the knot didn't mean that they had to cohabitate.

The Younger star told PEOPLE in May 2019 that while they had bought a home in upstate New York, "We still don't live together. We see each other on a weekly basis. We're FaceTiming all day, everyday."

The actress and her husband had to take their marriage long-distance while she filmed Homeland in North Carolina and he worked in New York. In one interview, Danes said, "In the formative stages of our courtship, our relationship, our schedules were amazingly compatible. Lately, we've not been so lucky ... We talk a lot, we text a lot, we send each other photos of our toes — dumb stuff."

When Dancy joined the Homeland cast in season 6, he and Danes were reunited and living in New York.

The couple are now happily co-habitating with their three sons, but for much of their relationship (which began back in 2010) they lived apart.

In 2016, Graham told Entertainment Tonight that she lived in New York while her hubby lived in Los Angeles. Graham said of their long-distance love, "We have a rule. We don't go longer than two weeks without seeing each other. It's absolutely fabulous. I love it. We just meet in L.A. or New York. We meet in Paris, Miami. It's pretty sexy."
