* In ''Film/HMPulhamEsq'' poor Harry is doing this on his honeymoon. While this is an EnforcedTrope, of course, it helps reinforce how Harry has chosen safe, rather dull Kay over his exciting girlfriend [[TomboyishName Marvin]].

* This was never mandatory in French cinema, so in ''Film/TheEarringsOfMadameDe'' it obviously emphasizes that while Andre and Louise remain friendly, their marriage is now completely sexless and passionless.

* One of the latest straight playings (in the puritan way) is the 90's Disney/MickeyMouse cartoon ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyT_Xc8DVng Hansel and Gretel]]'', where Mickey and Minnie don't sleep in the same bed, even though there's only one bed and this means Mickey must sleep in an armchair.

* Strangely enough, this shows up in a few ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' games. Almost all the games require you to get a "Big Bed" to get married. For you and your spouse, right? No -- for your spouse and ''your child.'' You still sleep in your own tiny bed. While it's pressed close the others, it's still separate. Where does the kid come from, then? (Other games avert this, however.)
** In at least one, you need a new bed which is a crib for the child, and you and your wife just share the single bed you start with. Guess you're both pretty sedate sleepers.

* Rare modern (2009) example: In ''VisualNovel/{{Clannad}} After Story'', Nagisa and Tomoya sleep on different futons. After getting married. Because placing two futons together [[SarcasmMode is really hard to do]]. Though maybe this isn't as surprising considering they have a ''literal'' NoHuggingNoKissing {{Chast|ity Couple}}e Relationship, where they never go beyond holding hands [[spoiler: at least onscreen, anyway. Obviously they go farther than that, since Nagisa eventually gets pregnant. In fact it's outright mentioned in conversation that they've slept together.]] But other than that Nagisa and Tomoya's relationship is distinctly portrayed as physically chaste.]]

Once upon a time, back in TheThirties and TheForties, there was a thing called UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode. Created in 1930 and strictly enforced after 1934, it had a lot of censorship rules foisted on American filmmakers by the MoralGuardians (In actually, the Hayes Office was created by the studios themselves. In part, because the studios feared that actual government censorship would be the result of failing to rein things in). One of the "don'ts" that weren't to be shown in films under any circumstances was "Any licentious or suggestive nudity." Further down, in what was described as the "be careful" section, was "Man and woman in bed together."
