- Lauren Lodder and her husband sleep in separate rooms. – and they’ve been doing it for the past 11 years.
- Lauren claims the arrangement actually contributes to the strength of their marriage.
Despite living in the same house, Lauren Lodder and her husband has always slept in separate rooms. In fact, they’ve been doing it for the past 11 years of their marriage.
It may seem like a weird idea for most couples but for Lauren – who goes by the handle @mommyowl on Instagram – there’s just no other way.
“He’s downstairs and I’m all the way upstairs in my private mom-cave, and I’m telling you guys it is a little slice of heaven.
“Because I don’t like sharing a bed — with anyone, never have. Their breathing, their moving, their hogging of the covers, their trips to the bathroom wake me up, and once I’m awake, I’m awake. There’s no settling back in and drifting off to sleep again for me. Nope.”
Naturally, most people who learn about their strange bed time arrangement are often shocked and confused. Some even comment that it may lead to their divorce but Lauren disagrees.
“I promise you,” she added, “I think this helps our marriage if anything because a sleepy, cranky wife doesn’t exactly make for a joyful daytime.”
So how about their intimate time together, you ask?
Well, according to Lauren:
“Let me tell you, few parents are waking up at 2AM after a long day with the kids and rolling over for some sexy time. (If you do, more power to you!) But sleep is when most of us moms be like, ‘This is the one time of day when no one’s touching me! Stay on your own side!’
So we cuddle and ‘whatever’ and then say, ‘Good night, honey!’ and we go to our different rooms on our different sides of the house and that’s that.”
“I don’t believe any marriage needs to look a certain way to be successful,” she likewise summed up. “If you like sleeping side-by side with your significant other and that gives you comfort, that’s great, too. Every couple is different and has different needs and as long as everyone is comfortable with the arrangement, go for it. Do your thang!”
