You have a couple of options.
The lower berth in the family room is 40" wide, which is the same width as a twin mattress. If you and your husband are small enough that you could share a twin bed, you could probably share the lower berth while the other adult takes the upper berth.
The lower chid berth is 4'9" long, so if you are short in stature and don't mind sleeping curled up a bit, you could take the lower child berth. That's a tight squeeze, though, even if you're 5'2".
Additionally, if you choose either option and one of you doesn't get much sleep, it's easy enough for someone to return to the room to catch a nap during the day. You'll miss some scenery, but it might save your marriage.
