Many of the LATs surveyed were young and hoped to live together (31 per cent).I had been in a relationship with a man who became stickily attached, and I couldn’t bear it.’ Both had been single for a long time and both enjoy their own company.Furthermore, there are 'profound differences’ in their tastes. They acknowledge they are 'privileged’ to have, as Wendy says, 'been able to live a lifestyle with two sets of bills and the cost of travel to see each other’. 'I didn’t envisage Wendy and me living together full-time,’ Tony says.Thirty per cent were LATs from choice ('preference’), where both or one partner wanted to live apart; 19 per cent cited 'constraint’, meaning they might have liked to share a home, but circumstances made it impossible or extremely difficult (perhaps the accommodation was unsuitable); 12 per cent were 'situational’, regarding their lifestyle choice as the best they could make in their circumstances, and eight per cent were unclassifiable.The remainder were those who, the researchers found, cited a combination of reasons for the choice.
