I prefer the cold bed. My wife prefers the bed made while i don't care one way or another. A made bed is for presentation purposes. To some, it means clean, organized, on top of it, ect.. Others prefer to sleep in a made bed. My wife's bed hardly looks like it has been slept in while mine is ripped up, tossed around, completely destroyed every morning. I spent years making it to make her happy, as well as the kids bed every morning. I no longer do, means nothing.
