Customer Question

My husband of 5 years (3rd marriage each) has forced me and insists that we share the marriageable bed. I have a severe disability and he is rather larger than me. His bulk makes him sweat excessively and makes me uncomfortable. Has he the right to expect me to have to share a bed with him even if it makes my disability worse. I have Cervical and Lumber spondylitus, scholiosis, and severe arthritus. I need my single spare bedroom badly

Thank you for your question. My name is Jo and I will try to help with this.

If you are in the Uk then you are free to sleep anywhere you like. Its entirely a matter for you. Its not within his control.

If you have another room that you want to sleep in then you are free to do so.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Jo you have made my day. I am in the Uk and he is quite adament that his is right. Can I come back to you should I need you. I shall sleep much happier in my little cosy room tonight. Jan

Yes, no problem.

Obviously that what you cannot do is force him to leave the matrimonial bed as its as much his room as yours. But if you choose to sleep elsewhere then thats up to you.
