Should You Keep Your Mattress After A Break-Up?

What happens when the things you shared with this person were necessary for everyday life? It’s simple enough to discard a comfy t-shirt or a novelty mug, but making the decision to get rid of something as intrinsic as the mattress you sleep on every night is a bit more of a challenge.

The obvious things to get rid of include sentimental gifts and photographs, but sometimes bigger items can leave a hovering question mark over your home.

Mattresses can be important purchases, so if you owned one with your ex, or shared one with them for a significant enough amount of time that it feels like theirs too, then considering getting rid of it can be a difficult decision to make.

Relationship experts say a mattress is one of the three key things you should part with after a long-term relationship. They believe it can hold an intense amount of energy from the amount of time you both spent there.

The number of activities that take place in, or on, a bed, can range from the romantic to the mundane and can leave a reservoir of painful memories that are difficult to detach from the piece of furniture that features in all of them.

If you’re finding that where you sleep is less a place of respite and more a space you dread to see the ghosts of former romances, then it’s best to get rid of what’s causing you so much stress. Closing that chapter on your life could be as simple as investing in a new mattress.

A bed is an intimate item and is used so regularly and synchronously by both partners that it would be difficult for it to not bring certain memories to mind. When you’ve moved onto a new relationship, however, your mattress should only be a positive location.
