Spouses: Master Bedroom or Separate Bedrooms?

On a recent Oprah a husband and wife talked about having separate bedrooms. Both said they were happily married for over 10 years. Two kids. The couple had not disclosed their sleeping arrangements with friends or family until Oprah. The wife had the master bedroom. The husband was downstairs in a guest bedroom. The couple said that they start out in the master bedroom for the first part of the night and then the husband goes back to his bedroom. What do you think of this?

I happily share a bedroom with my husband, but there are times when having a room of my own would be heavenly. Our bedroom is decorated in my style. The furniture is arranged the way I want it. My husband has to make his side of the bed and pick up his clothes. But, the room is still a shared space as is the rest of the house. When it boils down to it…the only time and place that I am alone and in my own space is when I drive without kids in my minivan. Sad, right?

So, what do you think? Share the Master Bedroom? Or have separate bedrooms?
