    Do you sleep with your spouse?

    Just random thoughts made me think of this and look up some facts on it, so I figured I would check it out here.

    1 in 4 married couples sleep in separate beds | Updated News
    Twin Beds or Separate Rooms for Married Couples
    More Married Couples Sleeping in Separate Beds: Study | NBC Philadelphia

    Do you normally sleep (really sleep, not just have sex), at least 5-6 nights a week, with your spouse? Do you have separate rooms or beds if you don't normally sleep together?

    For military guys, answer for when you are home. I understand really well what it is like to be away from home for months at a time. This is more about not sleeping with someone when you have the opportunity to do so.

    My paternal grandparents slept in separate bedrooms of the same house my whole life. In fact, it was almost like they were roommates or brother and sister, rather than husband and wife, from the way they lived their separate lives but still got along. They rarely went anywhere together. Unlike the studies/stories in the links I posted, however, I'm pretty sure my grandparents were not sleeping separately due to the way either of them slept, but rather relationship issues that the sleeping arrangement helped to minimize.

    I tease my husband sometimes about him loving the couch more than our bed, but I know that he just falls asleep there because our bed is upstairs and he is generally too tired to make the trip up after work and doesn't really want to miss whatever is going on downstairs, where the rest of us are. I would probably hate it if I couldn't sleep with my husband. That was one of the things I considered a wonderful bonus to marriage, I would have someone to sleep with more often than not.

    My boyfriend and I are not married (obviously), but we've lived together for three years. We share a bed every night. Even on those "screw you, I'm sleeping on the couch" occasions, it doesn't last the whole night.

    Thank you. I wasn't really meaning to limit it to married couples alone, but didn't really think outside that idea til I was making the poll.

    Anyone in a relationship, especially long term, feel free to answer as well.

    I didn't feel excluded .

    My parents slept separately for awhile before they divorced....really even before they had visible problems.

    My parents slept together up to the day my father left my mother. He had arranged to go help my grandmother out and wasn't planning on telling my mother that he was never coming back.

    His parents never got divorced, despite a very rocky marriage. And I know in some way my grandmother loved my grandfather because his death was really hard on her. I don't know how my grandfather felt about my grandmother, but he at least felt enough to ensure she was taken care of to the best of his ability. Just not sure if it was done out of a sense of responsibility or actual love.

    Re: Do you sleep with your spouse?

    My parents haven't slept in the same bed, or even shared a kiss, for about 15 years or more. I dunno how they do it.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I have trouble sleeping if I don't feel the mattress tilt right if my wife isn't in the bed with me.

    Re: Do you sleep with your spouse?

    I'm singleton - and I kinda like it at this point in my life.

    But my parents slept in different room (on different floors, even) for 5 or 6 years before they split. I can only recall seeing them show affection towards each other once in my life. I was 5 or so and my mother hugged and pecked my dad and I remember thinking it was odd, because I never saw them do that.

    As you can guess, they didn't like each other. And everyone, including me, was much happier after they split.
