A Sleep Divorce Could Make Your Relationship Stronger

If your partner is keeping you awake, it may be time to sleep in another bed.

That doesn’t mean you don’t love each other, it just means you need sleep. And bonus!: it could make your relationship stronger.

A new survey shows about 31-percent would like a “sleep divorce” in their relationship. That matches a National Sleep Foundation survey that reported almost1 in 4 American couples sleep in separate bedrooms or beds.

Carson Dalyis a high profile champion of the practice. He and his wife started sleeping apart when she was pregnant and he got sleep apnea. He says "We don't want to sleep apart, but we have now and I think secretly, we're like, 'This is kind of cool,' because you get command of the whole room."

The first step in getting your boo to accept the arrangement is by having an honest talk… in a very loving way. Then schedule time together before heading to bed, and always makes sure you let your partner know how appreciated they are.
