    Cheaper to buy for the studio and can have smaller set for the bedroom???

    They only have to buy it once. Maybe it is because the bedrooms seem to be small.

    There was a time when even a married couple could not be televised sharing a bed.  All the old TV shows had couples in twin beds.

    Probably so they can have the whole bed in the shot.

    I've never witnessed actors in their beds.

    Oh.  I don't know if that is true or why it would be.

    What size beds do most couple in real life occupy though? Regular (about 5-6ft wide) or the "royal" sizes?

    5 × 7 is a queen. A regular double bed is 4.5 × 6.

    Smaller set equals cheaper to build.

    There was a time that just showing a couple in their separate beds fully clothed was pushing it.  
    It was the time when decency still existed in the movies and on TV, in America anyway.
