Is marriage separation allowed?

What is the churches position on marriage separation. Currently my wife and I of 25 yrs are working through a few issues one of which is recovery from addiction. We are not living together however see each other often, and hope some day we can re-unite under one roof


The Church allows it for the reason you are doing it. You both are in our prayers.
