Size Matters • Get a bed that’s big enough. It might have been romantic to spoon in your boyfriend’s twin bed when the two of you were still dating, but back then, were you really concerned about sleep? Now that you’re married to the guy or living with him, you both need a little space to get a good night’s sleep. So when in doubt, go for a larger size mattress. A queen mattress is only 6 inches wider and 5 inches longer than a full-size, but you’d be surprised at how much more space the two of you will have. If your bedroom and budget allow for a king-size, go for it, but beware: at 76 inches wide—a whopping 16 inches wider than a queen—you might just lose each other in the bed!
