    If he’s stomach sick then I take care of him from a distance… I really can’t handle puking so I’ll get him what he needs but I’m always so scared of catching it that I keep away. We sleep in the same bed though.

    If he has a cold, sore throat, or something like that I will take care of him and cuddle him.

    We try to do A as much as we remember to.  Especially if it’s Darling Husband who is sick because I have chronic medical problems that just make everything worse.  We don’t usually sleep separately though.

    We do something in between.  We always sleep together, but we’ll keep more of a distance and try to remember not to kiss / share food / etc.

    A bit of both… He would take care of me and vice versa. We won’t kiss or share cups and such, but we still sleep in the same bed.

    I am B I will take care of him and ignore that he’s sick and I know if I get it then he will do the same for me.

    Uhhh…we just take care of each other and carry on as usual.  I mean, it’s kind of ingrained in us to kiss each other, so NOT kissing, is hard….and I operate under the assumption that I’m going to catch it anyway, so ….who cares?

    We try to follow method A but after a day or so we regress back into our usual routines. So far, we haven’t passed anything too serious to one another…yet. lol

    We both take care of each other regardless (B). 


    If it’s something contagious, and it’s in the air, it will get to the other eventually so I’d rather give/receive love and care than feel like I’m being quarantined

    @Nona99:  Same here.  We still sleep in the same bed and kiss.  I take care of him and don’t really worry about if I’m infecting myself.  We probably wouldn’t share drinks but we really don’t typically share drinks when we aren’t sick either.
