Do you sleep in the same bed as your husband/SO

Did they back the pioneer day or did they have separate rooms?

Did they cut holes in the sheets to keep private parts private?

  • In some Hispanic cultures, they used what was often called a wedding sheet or a bed veil. It was all white, and beautifully embroidered, usually by the mother and sisters of the bride. On the wedding night, the bride would retire to the bedroom, undress, and lie draped under the sheet, which had holes in the most opportune places. Sometimes the wedding sheet was discarded as couples got to know each other better, but fairly often, a man never saw his wife naked without the covering of the veil. Kind of sad, but we can't use our ideas of today to judge the past.

    I assume, though, that in the covered wagon days, families didn't always have the luxury of separate rooms. I'm guessing children learned fairly early where babies came from.

  • Do you cut holes in the sheets? Where you that scared to see it? Did it hurt as much as it did in the Pioneer Days?

  • Actually we do have 2 twin beds because as Orthodox Jews, we do avoid physical contact during my period and 7 days afterwards. On the days we can be together, we use King size sheets, so it looks like one bed. On the days we avoid contact, we separate the beds.
    And no, we don't cut holes in our sheets, who does that? Lol. I saw it in "Like Water for Chocolate", but according to my Catholic friends, that's not a Catholic thing.
