    Its Just A Lot Less Stressful That Way

    My wife and I don't share much intimacy anymore.  So we've just ended up that I sleep on the couch.  Does get old sometimes.

    I sleep on the couch

    because it's preferable than being near my soon-to-be ex. Good thing it's comfortable. Can't wait to not need to sleep on this thing, truth be told.
