I Just Spent 2 Days in the Hospital

    Not due to an injury, and my husband is fine. I merely had a flare-up of some existing heart and other medical problems.

    But when we returned home this evening I found he'd done something my late partner would do, as would my BF's.

    When I'd be away while they stayed home they'd lay my clothes out on my side of the bed. Or in this case, also uncover only their side for sleeping, and carefully fold the comforter onto my side, again taking some of my clothes from the closet to spread out.

    It's really very a very touching thing to do, and I'm not sure how common a practice. You heard of it, or do it yourself?

    Queen Victoria had it done for the rest of her life after her husband died.

    Welcome back, btw.

    Thanks for the welcome. icon_biggrin.gif

    Yes, she did. But I don't believe Queen Victoria actually slept in Prince Albert's bed after his death, or even in the room. It became more like a museum, or a memorial.

    And as with many aristocrats and wealthy people of that era married couples often slept apart in private chambers, with separate male or female staff to attend them at all hours.
