Make a bed pallette next to yours and when your little one won't stay in bed, let him know this is his place of comfort and that your bed is for mommy and daddy only, unless you all are playing together or something. But bedtime is his place and you all have yours. If you stop it now then you will have a happy marriage and happy relationship with your child. It worked for both of my kids. Eventually they wanted to sleep in their own bed, because of the themes they could have such as Cars Bed, Winnie the Pooh, etc. Provide him reward chart for being a big boy too. Find something he really likes and encourage positive behaviors. Trust me once he figures out that he does not always get his way but there is a compromise for now that will please all, your love life will be better. You don't want that wedge so soon, could be disasterous. Let me know how it goes. Happily married for 21 years now!

My daughter who is 2 does the same thing. I think it's the age. Separation anxiety. It's totally normal. You'll just have to be creative with hubby :S
