Why Sleeping In Separate Beds Saved My Marriage

  1. The hubster is 6 foot 3, and + or — 200 lbs (depending on the season) and takes up a lot of space and blankets.
  2. I have always found it very hard to sleep next to someone. This has been going on since childhood, and being married wasn’t going to make it go away all of a sudden.
  3. We have an intense emotional connection. When one of us is struggling to sleep the other one picks up on it. We notice this even when we sleep in different rooms.
  4. I experience chronic body pain and move a lot throughout the night. It’s better for me to sleep solo, so as to not disturb others, or be disturbed myself when I finally am getting some Zs.
