The Domicile regulation at contains a section on married individuals.  It says:

It is presumed that the domiciles of a husband and wife or civil union partners are
the same, unless there is affirmative evidence to the contrary. However, spouses who
are separated may acquire separate domiciles, even though no judgment or decree of
separation has been rendered provided the requisite move and intent are present.
