    Don't know why they used like this

    I doubt about a sentence below
    "Why do you leave early?" (That moment a person who was asked was leaving)

    Why didn't the speaker use "Why are you leaving early?" instead?

    Thank you

    Two more questions.
    1.He and she are happy or He and she is happy. Which one is correct?

    2.You and your wife live well together. You and your wife are living well together. Does the first sentence mean all the time they've lived together, they've been happy? and Does the second one mean around now they are living together happily but maybe in the past sometimes they had a quarrel.
