Separate bedrooms?

My parents got separate bedrooms once my sister and I moved out. My dad snores like crazy – so loud. They’ve been married almost 45 years. Separate bedrooms for about the last 15. Still all good.

We have never slept in different bedrooms however my husband has a similar schedule. He wakes up at 3:45am. The first few weeks he started his new job, I got terrible sleep. After a few weeks I got used to him waking me up and I started getting back into my same slee rhythm. I don’t know how long it’s been but I’d recommend to give your body some time to adjust to the new routine before having separate bedrooms. However, sleep is super important so sometimes you just have to do what you have to do!

My parents do this and love it. They flew out to visit me for an extended weekend and my mum said my spare room, with its queen bed and shared sheets, was torture. The king bed gives them way more space. Theirs also has the backs that can raise up (which helps with my dad’s snoring). My mum lasted with him in the same room for two nights of the vacation and then he got to enjoy my (very comfortable if I say so) couch.

Yes, my husband and I are in separate bedrooms, as we have very different sleep and work schedules. I would prefer that we had a king bed and similar work schedules so that we could sleep together, but it isn’t a serious problem that we don’t. Also, he snores and hogs the blankets, so!!

My parents have done this my entire life. Started because they worked opposite shifts and was the only way they could get sleep, and then it just stuck.

We don’t have separate bedrooms but during the week my husband mostly sleeps in the guest room.  He works 2nd shift and doesn’t fall asleep until 3 or 4am.  I get up between 6:30-7:00am.

This sounds like a great compromise. I would love to have my own bedroom, lol! 🙂

We don’t, but with his snoring and my insomnia, it’d probably be sensible….

We often take it in turns to sleep in the spare room when we are both exhausted. Darling Husband is a snorer and I am a duvet stealer. I am pregnant at the moment so we have slept apart more than normal to help me feel less exhausted.

My boyfriend and I also sleep in different rooms. Our sleep schedules are totally mismatched!

jasminek :  We do. Or, effectively we do.

All my stuff is in the big bedroom, but I almost always sleep in the guest room. I am a restless and light sleeper, while FH has started snoring. 

We both sleep better when we don’t sleep together. It took a little getting used to for FH, but it works great for us now.

We don’t technically have separate rooms, but my SO falls asleep on the couch most nights. Our current bedroom is too small for a king but when we move that’s what we plan on doing. It works for us. He goes to bed super late, and I’m up so early. I kinda like having the bed to myself, or sort of myself… two furballs that respectivly weigh 7 and 13 lbs like to take up the other half of the bed. How cats can take up an entire half of a bed is beyond me lol!

Our sleep schedules very often don’t line up. I certainly prefer sharing a bed but if it gets to the point where either of our sleep is getting too interupted I would definitely consider sleeping in the guest room! Sleep is too important to miss!

My husband knew when he moved in he’d be having his own room because I’m a light sleeper, have slept by myself since my divorce and I’m a total bed hog.

We don’t, but it really sounds lovely. We have separate covers because we aren’t good at sharing that.
