So recently as a gift from my parents, we ordered a new bed. I was very thrilled about this b/c our Full size bed for The Husband and I was just not big enough... especially when a little Kota Monster would jump into bed ALL the time. I'm not super tall - ok ok ok. I'm not tall. I'm 5'5 and The Husband is about 6ft. He's all legs as he likes to claim and i'm anything but... so for a while, we were sleeping on a mattress on the floor... it was a sad state.
so we ordered ourselves a California King. It's a Serta Alleene plush top blah blah blah and its firm yet plushy...and it finally arrived this week and before I could even make the bed, The Husband was all over it... NO JOKE
My mom always told me that a marital bed is a sacred place for husband and wife - meaning, that nobody but the married couple should ever sleep in the marital bed, alone and/or together - but its exclusive to the couple. I'm not really sure why or if this is somehow rooted in some old Korean tradition or folklore, but I am starting to have an unexplainable possessiveness over OUR new marital bed.
The previous bed was one that I owned before I even met The Husband, and thus just grandfathered into the relationship. My mother, cousins and friends have slept in this bed when visiting or babysitting our pups... But now that we have our very first owned bed together, does this somehow make it more sacred?
See how pretty...
and with the space that our old bed frame headboard took, it actually doesn't stick out past what the full size bed stuck out... but now its just all bed. Oh and note our fancy night stands - yes, dining chairs that I was going to put into storage have now become night stands. That's how we roll
and of course we still have one of these on the bed all the time
In our bigger marital bed, I don't mind falling asleep with to this view, b/c there is plenty of room...
So that still begs the question, does having our first Marital bed together, somehow make it more important to us? Or is a bed just a bed? What is your take on your marital bed (future or present)?
Oh yea, and just to mess with my mom, I told her the bed was so big, I don't even know that The Husband is in it... so her having grandchildren may take longer than she wants... she of course shrieked and yelled at me LOL :-)
