Obviously I know a few people who prefer to sleep on their backs. But I've never met a couple who say they both sleep on their backs before. Until the other day when talking to my newly married friends. I laughed. They looked really confused and offended. Just the thought of them in bed, side by side, on their backs, probably holding hands absolutely tickled me.
Reminds me of when a young relative got married, both young and innocent virgins On their wedding night (she told me this) she told her new husband to sleep in his usual position and she would fit around him
I sleep on my side and husband sleeps on his side, away from each other and at opposite sides of a huge bed. Anyone who saw us would think that we had fallen out but that's just how we like to sleep. We do meet in the middle occasionally
WTAF is so funny.DH and I have been sleeping together for 45 years.We start off spooning then thrash about a bit then. Back to spoons but by waking up time,we're flat on our backs, < probably snoring like road drills > and holding hands like the lovely otters seen on youtube.
