Filing Married for the first time and calculating housing expenses

My husband and I were just married in May. When I calculate housing expenses for the year if we are filing jointly, can I add both of our housing expenses from living in separate households Jan - April or can we only claim mine?

Know the answer? Face the same situation? Please post your answer or comment by using the "comment" link below. Thank you!
