Twelve reasons not to sleep with your partner or spouse tonight.

twelve-reasons-not-to-sleep-with-your-partner-or-spouse-tonight

I have written this hub as a means of giving a number good reasons for couples not to sleep together, tonight, or possibly most other nights. Yes it is of course nice to sleep with your partner, and many may say I am mad to even consider a loving couple should not share the same bed, but this is not about sex, this is about getting a good night's sleep.

Having been in various relationships throughout my 39 years on this earth (today being my 39th Birthday), I have always found I slept better when I was alone in my/our bed. My guess is my partners probably found the same thing, and that all in all we would both have slept better if we had our own bedrooms, or at least our own beds within one room.

Having spoken to other couples I have found that largely they feel much the same, no matter how much they love their partners. I propose the best time for a couple to share a bed is when they are having sex / making love, and the rest of the time they would be more relaxed and better rested if they had slept alone.

My arguments to back up my case are as follows:

1) One half of the partnership inevitably tends to steal all the duvet, leaving the other poor soul to frantically try to drag it back over to their side of the bed whilst meanwhile freezing their socks off.

2) At least one partner frequently snores so loudly (especially after a few drinks), as to keep the other partner tossing and turning all night with a pillow welded over their ears trying to block out both the noise and the vibrations.

***

3) It often gets simply too hot for two people in one bed, therefore it is more comfortable to be alone, or if you are on your own and too hot, it is easier to spread out or change to the cooler side of the bed if you are not sharing. It is also pretty unpleasant cuddling up to someone who is sweating profusely, especially when it might not be the case if you were in separate beds.

4) Not sharing a bed leaves more room for your furry pets to share your bed with their own unique brand of loving.

5) There is no danger of "Roll Together" if one partner is a lot heavier than the other, (this is when the heavier partner causes such a dip in the mattress so that the lighter partner keeps on rolling into both the resulting crater, and their partner).

***

6) If one of you is prone to needing to get up in the middle of the night for a visit to the toilet, a cigarette or a drink of water, sleeping apart removes the risk of disturbance from lights going on, duvets being thrown back etc.

***

7) If your partner is prone to sexual advances towards you in the middle of the night when you would prefer to be asleep so you are suitably rested for work the next morning, sleeping apart will make it far more effort for them to try and sneak a hand (or other unwelcome appendage), into a place you would prefer they left alone until a more convenient time.
