There Are Several Reasons I'll Probably Never Get Married, And This Is One Of Them.

I love sleeping alone. I can't imagine ever giving it up permanently. Sleeping with someone is nice occasionally, but the key word is "occasionally."

The longest I've ever shared my bed in a single stretch was nine days. Nine days of crazy sex at every conceivable opportunity. Nine days of delicious homecooked meals twice a day (I can't cook to save my life). Those nine days certainly had a lot going for them.

And by the end, I couldn't wait to have my bed to myself again. I'd never really thought about it before, but I was suddenly amazed and astounded that married people live like this for months, years, decades on end.

I barely had the patience for nine days.

I was married twice. Slept in my own bed during both, but it was an issue with the second guy who was clingy as hell. You can be married and sleep in your own bed, you just have to find someone who feels the same way.

I know, right?! I'm totally on your side, everyone else is insane.
