Are Separate Bedrooms From Your Partner Awesome, Or Awful?
Today we're wondering, as long as feelings or space aren't the issue... Do you and your partner sleep in separate bedrooms, or snuggle the night away, and would never part at night?
JStew: Hmmm... From time to time, KStew and I have had this discussion. Not because I don't like sharing a bed with my wife, but A) I keep really odd hours... getting up at 3:15am every morning doesn't do much for sleeping. B) I have awful sinus issues and barely sleep through the night anyway. And if there's one thing I can't stand the sound of, it's someone blissfully sleeping beside me, while I lie awake wishing I was asleep. All it does is wake me up even more. So far, we've kept on going, but I also feel like we're not supposed to be one of those 1950's TV old couples in separate twin beds. So my final verdict is: Not yet, but maybe someday?
Cori: I always though the concept of a married couple sleeping in separate beds was an odd one. And for the 12+ years I was married, I couldn't imagine sleeping apart from my husband. (Apparently he didn't share that idea on many levels, and thus, he is now an ex.) When he left, the thing I was most nervous about was sleeping on my own, because I was so used to the company. It was a silly thing to worry about, apparently, because with 4 kids (3 of them 10 and under) there's usually someone else in the bed at the end of the night. And after many years in the house, my stuff has spread out and taken over, so there's really no room for anyone else to share this space at the moment. So I'm okay with the idea of separate rooms! Plus, when you get up as early as I do, I'd feel terrible waking someone else up at such an ungodly hour. So I guess it's all worked out for the best!
Your answers were pretty much like we expected in some ways. And then others were still still surprising. Let's look....
