I use the same analogy as "fences make good neighbors". Happy relationship here, the other half snores like a freight train though. After ten years, it don't really matter if you share a bedroom or not. Now I have the freedom to pee standing up.

What about the wedding vows? What about the kids? They don't count for anything? Their happiness is irrelevant?

My wife and I had a discussion about this last night and she was as shocked as I am. Sleeping with each other and touching each other is like a time of re-charge after a hard day. There's nothing better than snuggling up with your lover and falling asleep feeling their warmth. We cuddle each other all night long this way and that and only reluctantly does one of us get up. A Queen is the perfect size. A double is too small because you really do need some space, and a King is too big because we can hardly find each other. If one of us snores, the other turns him over. Of course, we have no "special needs" as some of you have expressed, other than to be together.
I can't imagine sleeping in separate beds, thjough sometimes we have to, such as traveling in Europe where they apparently have not heard of the concept of sleeping together, and I REALLY can't imagine separate bedrooms. That's like a roommate you tolerate and can't wait til they move. The only reason they are there is to help pay the rent. A marriage like that is a social convenience and something you wouldn't do at all if you had to do it over.
BUT, different strokes and all. But it leaves me with an overwhelming feeling of sadness.
