Relationships require a lot of adjustments and compromises and this especially holds true in the bedroom. Sleeping habits of ones partner like snoring, insomnia etc can adversely effect ones relationship and now there are numbers to back this up.
According to a UK survey, one in six couples sleep in separate beds, and half of those sleep in separate rooms. The survey also revealed that this has an adverse effect on the relationship as sleeping apart reduces intimacy and harms their sex life.
The study,was conducted by mattress company Ergoflex, involved 2,010 men and women aged 18 and over in cohabitating relationships from across the UK.
“We’ve seen a pretty impressive rise in searches for single memory foam mattresses on-site over the past few months, and thought it was either down to people wanting smaller beds – or something was happening with couples across the nation,” said a spokesman for Ergoflex UK, according to the Daily Mail.
“Our results suggest the latter, and it seems that many couples in the UK are opting to sleep apart,” he said. “None seem to mind either and actually claim to like it, despite many saying it’s had a negative impact on their relationship.”
“Whatever the reason for sleeping apart, it seems that many simply see it as the easiest way to get a sound night’s sleep; which certainly makes sense in our book,” he concluded. “Sleeping apart can help you get the quality rest you need, no doubt putting you in a better mood with your partner during the day.”
