Message: With regard to Niddah. Can a couple have 2 mattresses on one platform- meaning the board the beds are on is one but there are 2 seperate mattresses that can be moved apart. thanx.

Reply: yes, since when one moves the other does not feel it.

Again, I sent you an email regarinf this issue. Doesn't the RAM"A paskin the beds need to be apart from each other?
Reply:  I think Aaron's point was, that it doesn't fall into the problem of the previous Rama, that says, a long chair "safsal aruch" that one feels the other one sitting, is assur. Since it is on a solid platform, one would not feel the other one.
The mattresses have to be not touching, according to the Rama. A minimum space of air suffices.
