A mother has sparked a lengthy debate after she revealed that she and her husband do not sleep in the same bed.
Terri-Ann Michelle took to TikTok and insisted that sleeping in separate beds has made their intimate relationship even better.
Sharing a video of herself dancing at home, the wife told her followers: “I know a lot of people will disagree with this BUT I don’t care.”
She continued: “My husband and I don’t sleep in the same bed (during the week) & it’s made our intimate relationship BETTER.
“We have very different schedules and sleeping habits which was causing a huge problem for us. Sleeping in different beds does NOT ruin marriages and it’s more common than you think.”
She also added in the caption: “intimacy doesn’t start in the bedroom.”
After sharing her video, she was inundated with comments from TikTokers who also do not share a bed with her partners.
One person wrote: “OMG US TOO! I’ve almost felt embarrassed for people to know, people judge, think it’s weird. New business & new baby! we had to do something! Sleep!”
Another commented: “Omg I cannot stand sleeping with my husband. He’s a fireman and the worst sleeper! It’s not about outdated marriage ‘rules’ it’s about sleep.”
However, many people disagreed, with one person writing: “Nope I married my husband for better or worse. I can’t imagine not having him in our bed. I would miss him.”
Another said: “I can’t sleep without my husband. He can’t sleep well without me. I’ll keep it that way. It doesn’t make much sense to not sleep together.”
