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.
