A recent post mentioned a married couple sharing a bedroom and in a comment an internet friend said something about being married for 28 years and sharing the same bedroom all that time. That got me to thinking about an agreement that Beloved and I made many years ago:
When we get into disagreements, whoever is the angry party and doesn’t want to sleep in the same bed with their spouse is the one who sleeps on the couch. That has saved me a LOT of couch time! Which is a good thing because I’m about 2 feet too long for the couch!
It has also been an excellent motivator to help us to more quickly work through our disagreements!
