Ask if the beds could be pushed together to make a king. 

If not, then enjoy having my blankets for the entire night on my own twin, and be happy I wasn’t sleeping on the floor.

I would be grateful to have a place to stay where someone else is welcoming us into their home, and not complain or think about it again.

I have stayed in a guest room at an aunt’s house as a married woman who slept in one twin bed while my husband slept in the other. What’s the big deal?

I would not care. I don’t need to sleep in the same bed as my husband every single night. If it’s so important to sleep in the same bed you could always pay for a hotel.

I think I would actually like having the bed and blankets to myself for the short stay haha. Honestly, I would just be grateful that you’re allowing us to stay with you and in mostly private quarters.

Overjoyed :  I would enjoy having my own space, but if it’s a deal breaker get a hotel.

Considering I’m getting a free place to stay for the week, I wouldn’t complain.

I agree with the PP about being grateful and not complaining. Plus, my DH sleeps like a starfish and steals the blankets so at least I know I wouldn’t have to fight for space and blankets 😉

Overjoyed :  I’D  be ovverjoyed (pun intended) Personally, I really prefer to sleep alone. So much so that I will often go down the hall and sleep in our guest room after FH has fallen asleep. 

I’m a super light and restless sleeper, and I don’t like anyone touching me while I’m resting. So, I’m all about separate beds. If I could have convinced FH to go along with always sleeping separately, I would have been delighted. As it stands, our current setup works out pretty well. 

I know some people who sleep better with their partner, and for those people I can see how twin beds might be a disappointment. But, I assume it’s only because those are the accomodations they have. I wouldn’t feel affonted, but if I felt strongly about sharing a bed, I might look for a hotel or airbnb instead.

If a friend was graciously hosting me and my partner I would not care if it was two single beds.

I wouldn’t care at all. I stayed in an AirBnB with my family over Christmas and our room had a full and a twin in it. After the second night I transferred myself to the twin because it was nice and smooshy and the full had the hardest memory foam I’ve ever slept on in my life. So my husband and our dog got to share the full for a few nights.
