Married seven months and we are now on separate coasts. I had 7 nights with my spouse in the last week and boy was it nice!? Soon we will actually be in the same place for.....ever? We will be back in the "promised land" starting the end of June. We can't wait. It was 3 years in the making. I am so excited to be married. The last few days have been very hectic and included missing a flight, a flat tire, a red-eye flight, a big work meeting, and..... I guess that was it. Anyhow, having a wonderful co-pilot made it easier and better.
A month is too long to be separated. If you plan to live apart during your engagement or marriage, do not wait a month to see each other. 3 weeks max, really.
