Separate bedrooms?

Not separate bedrooms, but separate beds, our house is too tiny for us to have separate bedrooms without sacrificing our game room since it is only two bedrooms. We sleep in separate beds because he tosses and turns around a lot and wakes me up. I do miss cuddling, but I also value my sleep.

My fiance and I are on totally different schedules 6 out of every 10 days, and initially it was a nightmare as I would wake up every time he got up earlier than me and also wake up when he got home from work in the middle of the night. What has worked for us is a white noise machine and me wearing earplugs. That, and just adjusting. It took ages for us to get this sorted though, literally about 2 years!

We don’t yet, but I’m >this< close to having him sleep in another room. He has developed this ridiculously loud snoring since he started working weird 1am to 2p work shifts. I can’t take much more of the roaring injured wildabeast that is trying to get out of him.

Im not able to fall alseep til he gets out of bed and leaves at midnight. Or on the wkends when he is off, he wakes me up 6+ times a night. Im getting ZERO sleep anytime he is home. 

 If it works for your schedule, I see no harm at all.

My bf stays up late and works nights and I’m currently back in school with early classes. He also snores.  I get the bed and he tends to fall asleep on the couch.  You have to kind of make more effort to have intimate time lol but we are both well rested and happier this way for now.

I’m surprised to see how many people sleep separately from their spouses or wish they did!


Im naturally a late riser who prefers to go to bed late, and my husband is the opposite – likes to be up early and in bed early. I’ve adjusted my schedule some, I go to bed with him earlier and putz around on my phone until I doze off. Like I’m doing right now). And he gets up early and makes me coffee and I will sleep through it or wake up and fall back asleep. Guess I’m lucky.

Yes! We have different work schedules and it helps us a lot. We do sleep together on the days we are both off.
