Lately, I’ve been thinking that it would be nice to have my own bedroom.
I am happily married, and have been for 7 years. My husband and I get along very well, and have no rifts in the marriage or anything like that. He doesn’t snore, or hog the covers. I’m actually the one who snores! I like to sprawl out across the bed.
But I wonder, how good for the marriage would it be for us to move into separate bedrooms? Also, how would it affect our young daughter to see us sleeping in separate rooms? Would he be offended or hurt by this suggestion (would you?)?
I’ve done some research, and most articles I’ve read seem to indicate that separate sleeping arrangements between married couples can actually be a good thing.
What say you, ATS?

Sleeping in different rooms was how married couples used to sleep, well nobility and upper crust people. Before you do talk to your husband first. You can always do like I used to do work different shifts. Just do what is right for your relationship.
Not one person has actually mentioned the word sex yet?

If you want separate rooms I can imagine that there isn't much of it going on, or you think it might be going on too much and want to curb it a little? What's the situation? Does he want it more often than you do? Are you wanting it more than him?
I would be done with a marriage if my wife wanted a separate room AND there weren't 'relations' on a regular basis.
There's a deeper issue here I think you might be avoiding though, imo.
