Last night a group of us (all singles) we shooting the bull, when the conversation moved to being married and having separate bedrooms. A few people thought it was a good idea, but I think the majority thought it was silly.
Unless someone is a really bad snorer, kicks and turns and prevents the other from sleeping, I propably wouldn’t consider it. I think one of the benefits of being married is having someone sleeping beside you. Someone you can cuddle or “spoon” with. Also I think it would be reassuring to know that within arms length there is a boob (preferably two, but I don’t want to be greedy) just laying there.
If I am having trouble sleeping or am in an odd mood or just want to be by myself, I will sleep on the couch. A separate bedroom to me says that there is something wrong in the relationship, that there is an emotional distance.
So, does this sound like good idea or not?
