I wonder what other readers think. I'm certain your husband isn't the only cuddler out there. There are a range of behaviors that occur during sleep which by definition are not under the conscious control of the sleeper, but which may be annoying to their partner.
Am I missing something, or isn't the obvious solution to buy twin beds, rather than continuing to share a larger single bed ? Then he can sleep alone ; maybe adding a large cuddly toy to cuddle ? Somehow I'm reminded of the Tim Minchin song, "Inflatable You". And you could then sleep peacefully, and enjoy your otherwise excellent relationship during waking hours. Twin beds are also useful for other marital mismatches : where one partner like to read late at night and the other doesn't, for instance ; or when one is afflicted with the Restless Legs Syndrome.
