    couple life/double life

    I'm looking for a correct expression that is opposed to a "single life".
    Which one is correct, couple life or double life? Or are both of them possible?

    Re: couple life/double life

    Neither is correct. One possibility is 'married life' or 'in a relationship' if no wedding has taken place.

    Living a double life means having relationships with two people, neither of whom knows about the other.

    Re: couple life/double life

    Living a double life can also mean existing as two completely different people. There doesn't have to be a relationship involved.

    On weekdays, I am a respected personal assistant in a high-end legal firm. At weekends, I am a pole dancer at a sleazy nightclub. My colleagues at the law firm don't know what I do at weekends. My dancing colleagues don't know about my weekday job. I am leading a double life.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
