Mega Bed has allowed us to customize our bedding in a way that promotes deep sleep. My appreciation for a soft mattress and warm nights means I outfitted my side accordingly with a pillow topper and lots of blankets. Ross' half of Mega Bed has fewer blankets and no topper.
Mega Bed gives us space without total separation
The greatest risk to the separate-beds arrangement is losing the intimate connection you have with your partner. You may worry that by getting separate beds, you will slowly transition into nothing more than roommates.
But with Mega Bed, if we want to cuddle all Ross or I need to do is roll over. And if we're upset, all we have to do is roll back. Sure, it's not as dramatic as getting up, grabbing a pillow, and stomping to the couch, but it still sends a message.
Like any aspect of a relationship, sleeping in separate beds can work if you actually put in the effort. At the end of the day, it's everything leading up to bed that matters most, anyway. In fact, even if you share a bed, you still need to put in the work to maintain intimacy. If you don't, it's entirely possible to sleep in the same bed and still be a million miles apart.
