While we used to think of only our grandparents as sleeping in separate rooms more and more couples in their 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s are sleeping in separate rooms and not because they no longer love each other or their marriage is doomed. They are choosing to do so because they simply aren’t sleeping well together.
A recent survey conducting through Ryerson’s Sleep and Depression Laboratory showed that 30-40 percent of couples sleep in different beds due to better quality sleep. At times when sharing the same quarters studies show that the movement of your partner, noises such a snoring, and having different sleep schedules can force ones brain out of deep sleep frequently throughout the night. While you still may be getting the right quantity of sleep, the concern now is that they quality of sleep you are getting isn’t sufficient to ones health.
