Arianne Cohen and her husband, Nate, have been married for one and a half years, and sleep in separate rooms.

The Portland, Ore., couple says having their separate spaces has brought them closer together.

If I ever cohabit again I would definitely consider having separate bedrooms/bathrooms. It doesn't mean you have to sleep apart all the time. But I do love having my own space. (I did not get this way until after having kids though! )

My ex snored loudly enough to wake the dead in the next county. I might have been more inclined to work with him on some of the issues in the marriage if I wasn't so sleep-deprived and exhausted all the time. Oh, well. He won the battle with one bed/one bedroom, but he lost the wife.

My parents have slept in separate rooms for as long as I can remember (I'm 25). My wife and I share a bed, like most, but I will admit that I enjoy having it to myself every once in a while.

My wife and I sleep in separate rooms. I have bad sleep apnea and sleep with a CPAP machine, it's easier for both of us to sleep separately. It hasn't damaged our relationship one bit, we actually enjoy the space.

If my SO was a noisy sleeper, we would absolutely be sleeping in different rooms. I don't see a thing wrong with that.

Hmmm. I didn't know this was an option.

How about separate apartments? What?

When my husband and I travel alone, at the hotel we often request two separate beds instead of one king. I LOVE being able to stretch out as far as I want!

If we get lonely, we can always "go visit"!

Some hotels only have double beds and sharing one of those is awful. However, my wife does not want to sleep without me in the bed with her.
