LAT: LIVING ALONE TOGETHER

Some 1.7 million married couples, not legally separated, in the United States don't live together - and 730,000 of them (43 percent) are 50 and older, according to the U.S. Census Bureau's 2013 Annual Social and Economic Supplement. Information on older married people living apart is limited, but reasons include jobs in different cities, being entrenched in a household that's too complex or settled to give up; online dating that allows people from all over the country to meet and marry; and technology such as cellphones, Skype and Facetime that allow a virtual closeness that makes separation easier.
