Get a sleep study. It could be sleep apnea.

I have never done well sharing a bed with anyone, whether it was a family member or a SO.  I am somewhat of a restless sleeper, changing positions several times during my sleep cycle.  I can’t stand blanket hoggers and especially snorers.  I envision having to sleep separately from any long term partner.  You should not feel weird about sleeping away from your fiance.  As some other bees pointed out, it is not uncommon, and it shouldn’t be stigmatized.

This is something that you just tell your kids the truth about.  You can say that many couples sleep in the same bed, but you’ve found that you don’t get good enough quality sleep.  If you take family vacations with a two-bedded hotel room in which a family of four sleeps two to each bed, your kids may very well learn for themselves how lousy sleeping next to a sibling or a parent can be compared to in their own bed at home.  I sure figured that out for myself when I was about 10.

Sounds like you need a bigger bed. 

Also-it is not your job to regulate your fiance’s moods. He is a grown man, not a toddler.

No Vitamin D at night! It blocks melatonin that we need for sleep cycles. Plus it and vitamins late at night can make you feel jittery when trying to fall asleep.

Yes indeed. And OP, stop worrying about what possible/hypothetical/maybe/future children might conceivably think about parents in separate beds, Really , you must have more going on in your life than ruminating over such a thing .
