Sleeping in Separate Rooms Can be Beneficial for Your Relationship

· January 16, 2017
Sleeping in separate rooms could be the solution to your problems as a couple. This is because our desire for our partner increases.

Can you imagine sleeping in a separate room from your partner? This is an idea that surprises us but, if we analyze it in depth, it doesn’t seem so farfetched.

It seems like one of the clauses in the contract that we “sign” at the beginning of our relationship if we are going to live together is that we have to sleep in the same room.

Why does it have to be this way? What happens if you sleep in separate rooms?

Sleeping in separate rooms seems to mean that something is not right, that there’s a problem in the relationship or that, perhaps, you no longer love your partner as much as you did before. For some reason, you don’t think it’s the right thing to do even if you feel like doing it.

But is all this true?

The myth of sleeping in separate rooms


Sleeping in separate rooms doesn’t necessarily mean that your relationship isn’t going well or that you don’t love your partner as much as you did before.

It’s true that sometimes sleeping in separate rooms can mean this, but we believe that this is always the case because we’re used to doing the opposite.

When a couple lives together for many years each partner begins to wonder what has changed between them because they have lost the passion in their relationship and have been submerged in a life full of routine.

The answer lies in how you have been acting. It is normal that you give your partner some space sooner or later if you are always stuck them at the beginning of your relationship.

It’s not uncommon for you to lose sexual desire for your partner. Suddenly, you no longer have privacy—you don’t even close the door when you go to the bathroom.

While this is true for some, for others it’s a loss of passion and desire.

Sleeping in separate rooms allows each partner to have their own intimate space because we should remember that we don’t have to always be clung to them at all times.

So, what’s so negative about sleeping in separate rooms?

Think about how you could benefit from sleeping in a separate room from your partner if you have a habit of reading or want to work late. You wouldn’t have to make sure that you didn’t wake your partner and would be free to go to bed whenever you wanted and keep the light on without worrying.

The erotic space

Only a few young couples have opted to stay in separate houses instead of living together. This enables them to be independent and enjoy their own space.

A space that will prevent the passion from diminishing rapidly.

A safe distance can be much more erotic than always being with your partner. That is why some young people choose to do this. This is much better than sleeping in separate beds.

Does this mean that they never sleep together? Of course not. They can spend a weekend together or go on holiday together, but in their daily lives, they prefer to live their lives separately, even if they’re in contact.

Let’s not forget that routine and arguments, which are considered a normal part of everyday life, end up making a dent in the relationship.

Perhaps, the habit of living together is not the most appropriate thing to do for a healthy relationship. At least not if we want to continue having our own privacy and our own erotic space.

Distance makes the heart grow fonder

Even if we don’t believe it, sleeping in separate rooms can cause our sexual desire towards our partner to increase. Because distance is sometimes positive.

Surely you’ve even heard the phrase “you want what you cannot have.” Well, if you sleep in separate rooms and if you’re not as close together as usual then you will begin to see how your desire for your partner increases.

Perhaps this is an option or a solution for all those couples that have lost that spark in their relationship due to having lived together for years.

The key isn’t to get carried away by what is considered to be right or wrong. What we have been taught isn’t always the right thing. So you can give sleeping in separate rooms a try without worrying.

Remember that if your relationship has become routine, the worst thing you can do is carry on with this routine. It’s necessary to change your habits and to try new things.

Sleeping in separate rooms could be one of the valid alternatives.
