      No. One mate may snore like a freight train, or perhaps, talk in their sleep, or maybe it could just be a comfort issue.
      Or it could be, that a couple has been married for 50 plus years and just want their "escape." very possible.All of these things and more.

      I am so "anti" statue quo of "should and should not do." I say: "Do your own thing!"

    No, it should be up to the couple.  I hate it when people wag the finger and try telling others what they "should" be doing when really it's up to the individual preferences of the people concerned.

    Mistyhorizon did a hub on it probably a year ago or more too.  It's an interesting topic.

    Edit:  I found Misty's hub that was published 18 months ago:

    guess it depends on the couple.  When I was married, I liked sharing our bed - shared it comfortably for many years.  If there is another time for me, I'm not sure now whether or not I'll share it again...for sleeping that is...LOL

    Studies were done that showed many men slept better alone. I don't know about women but the men's quality of sleep was greatly improved when a woman didn't kick or shove them every time they started to snore, and when they didn't have cold feet on them!

      Maybe if hubby wasn't snoring like a demented trumpet down her ear, or hogging most of the space, then hubby wouldn't be kicked or shoved over!  smile

    I think whatever suits the couple, althoguh I'd like to snuggle with my partner for example, it gives me comfort, but then if he feels more comfortable sleeping alone, then it is fine with me so he can rest and sleep well,

    It depends on the couple and the situation. Having an extra bed in the house is always a goot thing. If one person is snoring they other can sleep in the other bed, if theres a fight they can have their space.

    my parents shared the same bed until my mum could no longer stand my dad's ever increasing volume of snoring.

    Men may be more at risk from the babies that follow  mommy around in the night and come climb in bed. I woke up once when my husband started thrashing around and cracked up laughing at what I saw! One of the babies had come in and was passed out on his back splayed out across his dad's face!

    They must sleep in the same bed at some point as the marrage has to be consemated - if it is not consemated then it is not a marrage - smile

    It is best to part company and move to separate beds after the deed is done unless you are both at it all the time.  But then, you don' want to sleep.You sleep well when you sleep alone.

    If separate beds is not an option, is suffocation by pillow an option for loud snoring? hmm
