My husband and I went for separate bedrooms for a few years due to his snoring. Now he has a sleep apnea machine, but I got so used to the quiet of a
separate room, I still wear earplugs.
Now, without the snoring, we're back in the same bed.
I even had to wear the earplugs in the separate room, he was so loud.
He's a long haul truck driver, so he's only home for a couple of days out of the week, or else we would need a king size bed. I move all over the
bed when I'm on my own, so the space isn't there when I have to share
In the summer, when truck drivers all have their windows open, the other drivers would wake up and move their trucks away from his
The separate room started out as his idea, because I would kick him when he snored, and neither of us got any sleep.
I can't recommend for anyone else to sleep separate, but it works really good for some people.
Some people cannot take being away from their spouse at night. I've heard from women trying to get away from snoring husbands, that their husband
would come and find them to take them back to bed, even when it got so bad the wives were actually hiding from the snorer.
I still want a king size bed though....
