Question from Sarah - Lodging for courtiers and spouses

Did married courtiers sleep separately from their spouses whilst at court? If so, when did they ever have carnal knowledge of each other?

Some times courtiers were lodged at the court and sometime they took houses near the court. Married courtiers were not always at court together, many male coertiers were at court while their wives were at home and they saw one another infrequently and often required special permission from the monarch to leave court and so to answer the second part of your question, when ever they could.
