A MARRIED couple finally live together after 20 years apart.
But David and Claire Burke, who have a son, still do not share a bed.
They spent two decades in separate Bradford homes, and even wed in 2013, but feared living together would wreck their relationship.
When firefighter David, 48, got a promotion they agreed to move with son Jay, 12, to Wetherby, West Yorks.
NHS administrator Claire, 54, said: “It feels like a totally new relationship.
“We are so happy and I can’t see why we won’t be living together forever now.
“Living separately meant we avoided arguments most couples have.
“I didn’t want to become the nagging wife.
“I’m happy that I am more tolerant than I thought I would be.

“It has been brilliant so far.
“We don’t regret it all and we think it really was the right next step for us after all these years.”
“But I have been surprised at how unbothered I am by David’s little quirks that I thought would annoy me — such as him leaving his underpants on the floor.”
