We consider housing markets where individuals live in couples and where the set of goods is endowed with a geographical structure. This structure aims at capturing the fact that couples prefer living together. Our primary purpose is to investigate the existence of core allocations. Moreover, we are interested in checking whether core stable allocations can be obtained as outcomes of a relevant adaptation of the Top-Trading-Cycles algorithm.
