Today is our anniversary, celebrating 21 years of marriage and 26 years together. And there's no one else I'd rather spend my days with. He is truly my best friend as well as my man - we laugh a lot, love to be active together, enjoy cooking and experimenting in the kitchen, and so much more. And he helps me with all my food pics and styling, and patiently waits for me to take pics.
I am grateful to close my eyes every evening, snuggled up to him under our big down comforter, and wake up every morning next to him. Sleeping with someone is so much more personal and intimate than having sex with them, don't you think? Sleep is the ultimate in being vulnerable - you are exposing yourself probably in one of your worse states with no control over what you are doing (I'm sure I talk in my sleep, lol), snoring all night and waking up with hair all askew. I always think of Mrs. Maisel going to bed and waking up with perfect hair and makeup, waiting till her husband is asleep to take off her makeup and waking up way before him so she looked like that 50s image of a wife. 🛏
I've had friends, both male and female, that will have sex with someone but leave immediately and never sleep over. To me, it's truly a gift that I don't take for granted. We’ve certainly gone to bed angry at each other but we always wake up grateful and happy to be together. I’d say it’s the best piece of advice I can give to young couples starting out.
But I know many people who stop sleeping in the same bed as they get older. I realize that some may have medical issues that necessitate that. No judgment here, you do you. I've read articles by women that love having their own bedrooms and beds. And prefer to sleep apart. And whatever works for them. 🛏
What are your thoughts? How important is sleeping together with your partner?
