If you’re anything like me, one of the reasons the concept of marriage seems like a terrifying beast is because it entails sharing your bedroom with someone else. And for those of us who need their space with a capital N, but fear abandonment with a capital F, this is an anxiety-inducing prospect.
But fear not, because an article from Canadian Health suggests that having two different bedrooms can actually bring you two together.In Canada, 1,700 married couples (that is, one third of the country) have separate bedrooms. Surveys have shown that these couples are more satisfied with their sleep than couples who share a bed.
This is understandable- having your own bed means not listening to another person snoring, not being kicked in the face every 5 seconds, twisted and turning and your leisure, etc. If the sentiment behind the dual-bedrooms isn’t resentful, it can actually lead to better rested individuals and thus happier couples.
