Do you have to share a room? I know it goes against the norm but we had an office/guest space and my husband started sleeping in there when I was sick and snoring. It ended up working out, he’s a super light sleeper and if he is woken up at night it takes him forever to fall back asleep. He doesn’t always sleep in there and of course we still have sex etc but when it comes to sleep it works for us. And I know we aren’t the only ones, I have at least one friend who is open about it and several co-workers. Just because sleeping together is the norm doesn’t mean it has to be YOUR norm.
