Separate Bedrooms ?

I read in a magazine article that 46% of people have thought about moving to a separate bedroom from their partner. They think that they would sleep more soundly. I have been sharing a bed with my husband for nearly thirty years. I had a hard time in our first year of marriage getting accustomed to his snoring. Now his snores are comforting to me and I joke that they lull me to sleep. A few nights a year he stays at work all night. He works in banquet at a casino. On these nights I have a very hard time falling sleep. So I know with certainty that I would be miserable in separate bedrooms. I believe that having him by my side at night improves the quality of my sleep. What about you ? Do you like sharing your bedroom or do you long to have your bedroom to yourself ?

I have a very hard time sleeping without my husband. I would never want a separate bedroom from him, that's a strange concept to me.

How sweet! You two are great sounding together! I didn't think any couple slept i the same bed but my parents? i thought everybody has their own room? i never had a husband, so maybe i just assumed people slept in separate rooms. Or at least separate beds?????

We have slept together since the day we were married. Neither of us can sleep without the other. Your hubby should be checked for sleep apnea. Just saying.

I run a box fan year round to block out any noise, so if my husband snores, I am not aware of it, thank goodness. I do not mind sharing a bedroom since we have done so for 45 years. I have never had my own bedroom, ever! I wonder what that would be like?

A lot of people, I'm finding out, run fans at night for different reasons. I never could until recently. But I have a loud neighbor, so I have found that helps me sleep a lot better.

@Raelove I have always needed the fan. Our son does the same. Not sure if our son's wife minds the fan.

@Corbin5 I'm a light sleeper most of the time, and I lived many years in the woods, where it was deathly quiet at night. So now, the least noise keeps me awake. It's a toss-up for me now: do I put up with my neighbor's noise at night or the fan's noise? The fan is the lesser of two evils.

My dad slept horribly during the nights he was away from my mom. I remember him preaching revivals four hours away, but driving home each night because he slept better with her. Now my mom's parents occasionally slept in separate rooms because both of their snoring kept the other awake. Then my grandfather got a sleep apnea machine and my grandmother didn't. So it really disrupted his sleep.

Separate bedrooms! A snoring partner can lead to murderous thoughts. :-)

If possible it's good to have separate bedroom or room that you can call your space. Sure the other can feel free come in there whenever they want. But now, some have a separate bed so they can get comfortable when they sleep. And the spare room is a space both can use when they want to have a quiet space. That just might work.

I would enjoy a special room for myself, but not a bedroom

I've been sharing beds with my bf for 7 years now ans still cant get use to the snoring. Constantly pushing him especially when he gets really loud.

Since I don't have a husband I'm very accustomed to sleeping alone. But, if I were married I doubt I'd want separate bedrooms

We have always shared a bed but the times Vince has been away I think I do sleep better. It seems I wake every time he rolls over or moves. But I don't really want separate rooms or even separate beds.

I really don't want to dwell on it now because I am slowly but surely getting used to being on my own and facing reality. Let me just say that alter 20+ years when my husband passed away in August and I went to bed at night I nearly had anxiety attack the first couple of weeks until finally I settled down.

I prefer sharing a bedroom but sometimes snoring or restlessness can be a problem.

I have learned to sleep through his snores, but it does wake me when he gets out of the bed.

Yes, I do sleep with my kitty part of the night, Last night at 9 pm he was playing on our bed and then kept stretching laying next to me and knocking on my arm! I adore the little guy and he can do what he wants!

Honestly I sleep better when my husband sleeps in the guest room. He will do that when he needs to get up real early for work , when he goes to bed earlier than I do. He does snore a little and I don't like to hear anything while I sleep.

I guess that I am lucky to have gotten accustomed to my husband's snores.

My husband and I share a room and a bed. If one of us is really bothered by the others snoring (it does happen from time to time) we move to the spare room. In February we won't just have separate beds...we'll be living miles apart for 7 weeks.
