For a lot of people, the only time when a couple is permitted to stay apart is when they are still courting, the moment they get married, they have to live together to avoid some marital issues.
Some Nigerian celebrities have, however, shown that there is no one-size-fits-all for a problem-free marriage.
These celebrities have their spouses living abroad with their children while they are based in Nigeria.
