Default multiple houses

Although I consider Richard my primary partner and we are planning our retirement together, we have never shared a home. We do spend time at each others houses. When we met (10 years ago) we had each just built our houses (the main ones that we live in). Since then, we have each purchased an investment property. He lives part time in each of his houses because of his job. I live in my main house and spend time occasionally at my beach house.

It is pretty interesting for his ex to be at his main house when I am there- which has been a lot lately. We work together to make his life more comfortable and he does the same for each of us!
The key to life is in being fully engaged and peacefully detached simultaneously and authentically in each moment.
