Husband Admits That He and His Wife Swap Sides of the Bed Regularly and People Are Downright Shocked

Husband Admits That He and His Wife Swap Sides of the Bed Regularly and People Are Downright Shocked

A man has shocked many, many people by admitting that he and his wife regularly swap sides of the bed, even becoming genuinely surprised that this is not actually a thing and that practically no one else does it.

The startling realisation came as Irishman Steve O’Rourke was chatting with work friends about him and his wife Amy’s sleeping habits and the fact that they often switch sides depending on who gets into bed first.

I’m sorry, what now?

This alarming news became public when Steve shared it with his Twitter followers and it went viral and couples the world over stared agape with confusion. Why would anyone even…

To put it mildly, some people were absolutely horrified. As well they should be. This is just the sort of anarchy that could ruin a perfectly good relationship. But still, Steve defended his sleeping arrangements as though they were the most normal thing in the world. Even though they aren’t.

After much discussion about the pros and cons of swapping sides occasionally, Steve eventually told people to give it a go if they haven’t tried it.

When my husband and I first met, I slept on the “wrong” side of the bed for a few nights and kept falling out. Ever since I’ve had my side and he’s had his and that’s that! And it’s been more than 17 years. Even in hotels and what not, I have to sleep on the left hand side or I can’t guarantee I’ll stay in the bed!

How about you? Do you swap sides regularly? Or are you a one-sided gal like me?
