Dear Annie: I have given the past 10 years to a man I love very much. “Cliff” wants to marry me, but I’ve turned him down. The problem is, he wants us to get married and each live in our own houses.

We are both 67 years old. Right now, Cliff spends weekends at my place. When I suggest going to his house on the occasional weekend, he says no, claiming he hasn’t had time to clean or there are no groceries or my bed is more comfortable and my TV is bigger, etc., etc. When I suggested we purchase a house together, Cliff said he will never leave his house. Ever. He thinks I should put my stuff in storage and move in with only my clothes.
