There is no rulebook for the perfect marriage - and even if there was, some celebrity couples are proving that they are more than happy to throw it right out of the window, along with a lot of other wedded traditions, including sharing the same marital home. 

One such couple is Kourtney Kardashian and her new husband Travis Barker, with the reality star revealing in a recent interview that the pair still don't live in the same house - and that she often co-sleeps with her 10-year-old daughter Penelope, instead of with her partner.  

But as it turns out, Kourtney, 43, and her rocker beau, 46, are one of many A-list pairings who have chosen to live separately, with several other celebrity couples coming out to share their own similarly unique living situations over the years. 

Gwyneth Paltrow - who defied convention when she announced that she was 'consciously uncoupling' from her first husband Chris Martin - once again bucked tradition when she revealed in June 2019 that she had her second husband, Brad Falchuk, retained their separate residences and lived apart for the first year of their marriage to 'preserve mystery'. 

It appears the quirky convention proved successful because the couple are still going strong several years later - and have since 'merged' their lives and their homes. 

Keeping things separate: Even though Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker have been married since May 2022, the two live in separate homes and Kourtney still co-sleeps with her 10-year-old daughter, Penelope

'We want our kids to also feel really comfortable and they have both lived in their homes their whole lives for the most part,' Kourtney says of their decision to live in separate homes

However, choosing to maintain separate living spaces hasn't worked for everyone. 

Kaley Cuoco and her ex-husband Karl Cook followed a similar pattern to Gwyneth and Brad, spending more than a year after their 2018 marriage in separate homes, before eventually moving in together in 2020. 

Ultimately, that may well have been an error because the pair split one year later. 

However Kourtney insisted during a recent interview that her and Travis' set-up has been working like a charm - particularly for their respective children, whom they wanted to be able to keep living in their own homes. 

Kourtney has daughter Penelope, 10, and sons Mason, 12, and Reign, seven, with her former partner Scott Disick, while Travis welcomed a son named Landon, 18, and a daughter named Alabama, 16, with ex-wife Shanna Moakler.

'We want our kids to also feel really comfortable and they have both lived in their homes their whole lives for the most part,' she told Dear Media's Not Skinny, Not Fat podcast, also noting that they aren't living particularly far apart - because their homes are located just across the street from each other.

While they each have their own reasons, DailyMail.com reveals the other famous couples who opted to live separately - and their reasons why, from work obligations to issues over loud snoring.

Gwyneth Paltrow, 50, and Brad Falchuk, 51, spent the first year of their marriage living in separate homes - even though they had been together for some time before they had tied the knot.

The two had met in 2010 and began dating in 2014 when Gwyneth appeared in a guest spot on Glee, which Brad had worked on as a producer. 

Brad popped the question in 2017 and they tied the knot a year later in 2018. They would spend the next year living separately, a decision Gwyneth doesn't seem to regret. 

'I think it certainly helps with preserving mystery and also preserving the idea that this person has their own life,' Gwyneth said of living separately from Brad

'One of my best friends was like, "That is my dream. Don’t ever move in,"' she joked to Harper's Bazaar of reflecting on their once-unconventional living situation.

'I think it certainly helps with preserving mystery and also preserving the idea that this person has their own life,' she added.

They ended up moving in together in 2019 and in the 2020 Harper's Bazaar interview, she joked, 'so our sex life is over.'

Despite the challenges of living together with their kids, especially during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, they still seem to be going strong.
