My Husband and I are switching to Twin beds...

And I couldn't be more excited.
We have been married for almost thirteen years and are very happy together. We have three amazing kids and even work together. However, he worked nights for years and during that time I was up at night nursing babies (we had one every two years) and we basically never slept in the same bed at the same time.
When he left nights we tried to sleep in the same bed again and it just isn't working. I end up on a mattress on the floor most nights. We have tried numerous times to get used to sleeping together again and it just isn't working.
So, we sat down and decided to try a solution. We are going to get rid of our bed and get two twin beds.
Sure, it is probably weird to some people, but I'm over the moon excited.
I'm tired of sleeping on the floor, and want to be near him...even if it isn't in the same bed.

Do you and your partner sleep in the same bed?

Ok, that just popped into my head. DH and I sleep on a queen, we haven't had a problem, even when DS slept with us for a few years.

We do, but my parents do not. They've been married over 30 years so I guess it works for them. My dad snores loudly, and my mom likes to watch TV late which my dad doesn't like.

I coslept with our babies as well..and they tendEd to keep him awake. He worked so much, I didn't want him to miss his sleep. Now that he has switched back to days he is a really light sleeper.

We had trouble in a queen but once we switched to a king we were okay.

You're just kicking it back old school. One of my friend's parents don't sleep in the same room because he likes it freezing and she likes it hot. Do what works for you all.

DF, and I do (and usually DS)

But DFs parents don't, they even have different rooms. His dad snores very loudly.
