Another CNN article:
We're married, sleeping separately

Who else does this? If so, has it made your sex life better, worse, or still the same? How about the non-sex part of the relationship (like that should matter )?

Default i've been there

When me and my hubby were sleeping seperately..he was angry with me or I was angry with him. There's always a reason..my Pastor says when things are going badly in marriage it can be wise to spend some time apart but you should at least be agreeable

Even if we fight, the wife and I would never sleep separately.

Sleeping separately can be great - you don't have to fight for the covers or disturb them with your scratching and your farts. You can roll around as much as you want without a hand slapping you upside the head.

But as for sex - I've found it's usually better to be together for that.

My husband and I have had numerous talk about getting separate rooms because his snoring is horrible...I don't sleep - and he doesn't because I'm constantly push him

He does on occasion sleep on the couch and it's like PURE BLISS

LOL, wise guy. You know what I mean. And if you don't, I meant has sex (together!) been better/worse/same when sleeping separately vs. sleeping together?

I was surprised to read that so many houses are now being built with 2 master suites. What a waste of space. Give the snorer/farter/puncher/kicker the couch and let the other one take the master bedroom.

An ex-boyfriend of mine snored like a freight train. I swear I have never heard snoring that loud in my life. If we had stayed together and got married there's no doubt we would have slept apart, or I would have invested in some good ear plugs.

My parents sleep apart a lot these days. My Dad has a lot of health issues and tends to get up several times during the night. Mom just sleeps better when he's not there.

I would never sleep apart from my SO. I like being spooned/groped in the middle of the night.

My mom, though, finally had enough of my dad's snoring/late night tv watching, so she moved into her own room. She loves it!
