This question / answer discusses the issue of Couple's showing affection in public.

In regard to that, I was wondering whether it would be permitted / appropriate for a couple to sleep in a bed together, in a place which is view-able to others. For example if there was a double couch/bed in a large living room of a family home, could they host a couple to sleep on that? (No physical endearment will take place, only sleeping).

  • Don't husband and wife usually sleep in separate beds unless they're performing their marital duties? I apologize if I'm ignorant, I'm not married and haven't taken a chosson class. bashful :)
