    I try to avoid making demands, actually. A new mattress sounds nice, though.

    My mother bought us our mattress which just came on Saturday.  It was one of my hundred shower gifts she got me. 

    And yes, I didn’t want our marriage bed to be either one of ours too since we both know other people have been in it.

    Never thought about it to be honest.

    Well, we lived together before getting married and purchased a mattress at that time. Before then, our bed was my bed that I had all through jr. high and high school. Technically I was “with” someone else in the bed but Darling Husband never thought to “demand” a completely different mattress. Honestly, that’s not something that either of us would ever of thought to do. 

    ETA: Actually, our current bed was given to us from my MIL’s friend who was moving and couldn’t take it with her. We were in the market for a new mattress and she offered us hers for free (it was a $4k mattress!). It was less than a year old and almost brand new so we jumped at the oppertunity. I imagine she and her husband got busy in it but that doesn’t really bother me. Free trumps previously “broken” in any day.

    Not demanding. But we have both agreed it will be our first big purchase together (before the wedding). 

    We would be using my old mattress and I just want a fresh new clean one and he agrees so were getting it

    Our bed set and mattress belonged to my mom and step-father… Yes, they had sex in the 20 years they had the bed, and it doesn’t bother me… if it belonged to an ex, totally different story, I would demand a new mattress. Ah, call me a hypocrite!

    Eh, I can understand why you’d want a new one–his mom still has his old bed at her house and I know he and his ex have been in it before, but so have we, haha. OUR bed, however, I purchased when we started dating (coincided with me leaving my ex and needing a bed because I didn’t have one). I put a new mattress (memory foam) on our registry, though.

    It wasn’t a problem for us, as we used my mattress that was fairly new, then later upgraded to a new mattress before the wedding (mine was too small). I’d probably just have bought us new sheets under other circumstances.

    Doesn’t bother me. Then again, the mattress we sleep on is mine anyway. But I never cared about sleeping on his. If they were stained it would be a different story. Gross. Yay mattress pad!

    Your man is so sweet though!

    Lol we are the only people to make whoopee in our current bed but I did demand another because this one has aged and just doesn’t feel as comfy as before.

    No, only because we knew we were going to get a bigger bed when we inevitably buy a house…

    While I want a new mattress because our Queen is a bit small at times, it’s not important to me to replace our most expensive piece of furniture because someone else was on it at some point.

    Other: Both virgins, so not really applicable. But it would bug me.

    I got a new bed and mattress when I moved in with my SO. It was really important to me.
