Two beds, one frame
Many beds sold have a headboard and footboard. the headboard and footboard are actually connected via a wood frame. king mattress sits on the frame. If we were to get 2 twin mattresses would this be ok during nidda? Please provide details.
Thank you for your question.
A frame which surrounds the bed and can be separated from it is not problematic, as long as the two beds each have a separate base and mattress. If the mattresses share the same base, this would be a problem. Not only do the mattresses need to be separated, but the bases of the beds do as well.
