The Week contest: Love apart
Last week's question: Husband and wife David and Claire Burke have been together for 16 happy years, and credit their relationship's success to the fact that they have never lived under the same roof. If the British couple were to publish a marital-advice book based on their philosophy, what title could they give it?
