I have recently read lots of material stating more and more couples are opting to sleep in separate beds and the main reason being: they get a better night of sleep. And no doubt, until you are used to the person and work out bits and pieces, it might seem awkward for a while. However, isn’t this what marriage is about – compromise?
I don’t envisage the perfect married couple and then imagine them snugged up in separate beds. Yes, occasionally if one is really sick, it is probably a sensible thing to do.
So, why are people doing this more and more. Is it a stem from equality and are people thinking: “If I am not comfortable… there must be another way!”.
The main thing I struggle with is that sharing a bed all night is one sacred thing that the married couple share and it is sweet – in their special room and in their night wear, having a chat and waking up with a smile!!! I know it isn’t always as perfect as this, but variations are also nice!!!
I read that many couples reunite on weekends. Look, it could be a lot worse I guess, but no matter how much we sugar coat it and say it is great because we are refreshed for work and he gets up early blah blah, it isn’t a loving ritual.
A nice story would be to slowly reunite so every night is spent together – or start off with half a night! Imagine if you told people that you were in separate beds and then you realised you missed each other too much and you gradually made it work! Wow – now that is sweet!!!
