  At the same time, each of you should put the remaining 25 percent of your take-home pay into your own account.

It's normal to wonder how these two have been making things work for as long as they have been, and, as it turns out, Parton has kind of a strange secret to making their marriage last: she and Carl Dean spend a lot of time apart.
