After our marriage in Hungary, our first bedroom set contained twin beds. When we came to America, our small rooms would not accommodate twin beds, so we bought a full size bed. Stephen, being heavier, I usually found myself over on his side. He’d wake up and ask me to move over so “my bony knees would not be pressing his kidneys.” I would move over to my side – muttering that one day he’d be sorry because I wouldn’t even get close to him! After a few months of this, we gradually made our own indentations in the mattress and thereafter peace reigned!
