    More couples are sleeping in separate beds — and waking up happier

    8 hrs ago
    The idea of "separate bedrooms" — or at least separate beds — may carry a big social stigma, but it turns out it's way more common than you might think. A recent survey has found that as many as 30 percent to 40 percent of couples sleep in separate beds — and may sleep more deeply and wake up happier than couples who share a bed. "People will say they sleep better [together], but when we actually monitor their brains we see that their brain is not getting into deeper stages of sleep because they’re continuously being woken up by movement or sound," says Colleen Carney, a sleep researcher at Ryerson University in Toronto. "It creates a lot of problems." If your partner's a snorer or a spontaneous jerker of legs, you probably know what she's talking about. [Source]

    WHY?

    I guess that's not such a bad thing. Some are just very light sleepers compared to their spouse, so a separate bed or bedroom can be very helpful in getting the sleep needed to function better throughout the day. :D And it's not like anything is preventing them from sharing their bed when they feel like it, if ya get what I mean.

    I am a light sleeper and I saw this on the news the other day. Yeap, if he snores loudly, constantly moves around, then sorry, we will have to sleep in separate beds. My sleep is important to me and if he doesn't understand that, hit the road. Regardless of what happens, my health comes first before ANY man.

    That's my point. You would have to know this before marriage

    Sleeping habits can change over time because of one's job, career, family, stress, etc; and even if you did find it out, what's that mean? You shouldn't marry because they toss and turn in their sleep? Or because you knew their sleeping habit before your marriage, you're absolutely obligated to share the same bed?:10500:
