Hi ESC
While not being particularly well versed in country music, I do love Emmylou Harris. Her work suggests to me that the inverse is perhaps more likely, as it is more painful. That is, a married couple, living together, and drifting apart. This is the concept of classic country, isn't it? That is, true love, forever lost! This is Hank Williams too. Your suggestion, although certainly possible, is much to happy to form the basis for a typical country music theme. Or so I think.
Best regards
Anders
