After our children were born, and there are 5 of them. At one time there were 5 all under the age of 6, and they ALL slept with us! So we had two queen sized beds in our room. He slept with 2 or 3 and I slept with 2 or 3, we split the kids up, one night he would have 3, me 2 the other night, him 2, me 3. The kids became older and started sleeping in their own beds and in their own rooms, hubby and I were finally able to have our own room and 1 bed! We came to find out we don't like sleeping together!! I'm a blanket hogg according to him, he's a blanket hogg according to me. He snores like a freight train, I scream (seriously, yeah I do, for some odd reason I will sit up in the bed and scream like a mad woman, lay back down and go to sleep :O). So we went to seperate beds again. And we LOVE it! How many others do this? The kids now are 21 to 15 so 2 of them have grown up and moved out, so, guess what now? He has a room of his own, I have a room of my own. No more snoring, no more screaming. It works perfectly for us.

I think when you are young that you want someone to sleep with and cuddle up to at night. When I started having hot flashes he went to the other bedroom because I would turn on the fan to cool off. I thought it would depress me but the truth is I loved having the bed to myself. After awhile he wanted to get back in bed with me but I did not want him to. It was not because I was mad but because I wanted to hog the bed to myself. Long story short we ended breaking up. I do not know if sleeping in different rooms contributed to the breakup. But I do know that I am not sure if I want to give up all that space ever again.
