Older couples sleeping in separate rooms

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Husband being 50 years of age stops sleeping on a separate bed and not with the wife while the wife being young desires being intimate. What can be the solution? This is a regular custom in the area that when the couples are older they start sleeping in separate rooms but the wife doesn’t like to sleep separately.

A: The right method is that they should be together in the same room.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
