I've been sleeping with our three kids (individually, in their beds when they are young), while my husband sleeps on his own in our big bed. This started with our oldest, who is eight. I also have a six year old, and a three year old who have their own rooms. The three year old is probably ready to sleep alone.
My husband has been really clear lately that this arrangement needs to end soon.
He misses me, and I miss him -- but I find it really difficult to fall asleep alongside him.
He is definitely feeling abandoned.
Has anyone gone through this?
What did you do to get past the initial resistance?
I feel like I'm sabotaging my marriage with this reluctance, but the transition back is really difficult.
