Does separate beds = Marital bliss?

I just did an interview on BBC Radio Wales talking about the study that claims sleeping in separate beds is the key to a happy marriage. Some people think that it harms intimacy, but personally, I think that having my own room would be awesome.

In some of my past relationships where snoring has been an issue (theirs, not mine!), I’ve slept in the spare room, and it didn’t mean that we were in buttoned-up pyjamas in twin beds. We would have hot sex, then I would go into my own private room, so that while he was snoring like a buzzsaw, I slept through the night and was in a much better mood come morning. I’m not saying that it’s for everyone, but it’s an option worth considering.

If I ever get married, I want my own bathroom. In my mind, a two-bathroom system seems to be the key to relationship longevity. I don’t want to know what happens behind his door, and I don’t want him to know about my hair removal regime. As far as he’s concerned, I’m naturally hairless below the eyebrows. Period. Maybe that’s what my mum meant when she talked about ‘preserving some mystery’?
