Would you switch sides of the bed with your partner?
There are some who believe switching up the side of the bed they sleep on is completely normal. One night, you get the left side and, the next night, your partner might be sleeping on the left side. What's the big deal? It all depends on the mood you're in for the evening, and your partner should be happy to accommodate, given the following guidelines laid out by Steve O'Rourke:
Feel like I need to point out the following: 1. First one in chooses 2. We've never disagreed over it 3. We move pillows and books as we move 4. We don't change every single night 5. Neither of us are aliens
Many people were appalled to hear such an idea popularized on Twitter. You can never and should never change your side of the bed with your partner. Once your side of the bed goes, chaos sets in. Resentment between the two of you grows, windows are left open because no one knows who is supposed to close them anymore, outlets are left over-used or not used at all–what kind of world is this?
O'Rourke asked his following why they were so weirded out by the idea. One person replied:
Well.. Its just.. I don't.. You have a side of the bed, and that's your side of the bed, and they have theirs. And that's that. It's a bit like saying, "I think I'll go sleep in the neighbors house tonight"..
You don't switch sides of the bed with your partner. It just isn't right.
