We just recently moved and they share a room. I had to throw out one of their twin beds during the move, but we had an extra queen mattress. So I have them both in one queen until I can score a good deal on some bunk beds.
They personally like sharing a bed. Sometimes they argue and put the teddy bear in between one another ;) They are 4 and 5 year old boys by the way.
ETA- Sweet! My first featured post. I was wondering why my post got so many replies! Thanks for ALL your input ladies!
mine do too, but with me and their dad, we have a family bed

Sounds like me...loves her big brother, lol
His room is also far from my room and I'll worry all night lol because I won't be able to hear them
.... We make up for it one a week though.... We set up the air mattress in the living room, make a fort and have a movie/"sleepover" night and she is stuck to his hip lol
They learn to adapt lol. My oldest kicks and squirms around, the youngest stays straight as a stick all night.
I couldn't have my kids share.... One is almost 11 and the other just turned 3.... My DD (3) always wants to sleep in DS (10) room but I'm afraid he'll roll over on to her lol... Plus he wiggles and kicks.
My boys do too, mainly because my youngest always gets into bed with his brother in the middle of the night. Honestly though the only problem is that my youngest is a weed eater, he can't sit still so it causes my oldest son to get uncomfortable and have a bad nights rest, so as long as the bed is big enough with enough space you should be fine.

Ds 8 will go into his brothers room 14 when he has a nightmare. Because mommy kicks and punches. I've given both boys bloody lips in my sleep and broke df's nose once. I have severe night terrors
