Saying “divorce” sounds like the worst possible scenario for a couple. But there’s actually a kind of divorce that’s super trendy right now and might actually be good for your relationship. It’s a “sleep divorce,” and it basically means that you and your partner sleep separately. More bed for me? Yes, please!
According to a 2010 study by the National Sleep Foundation, about 25% of married couples sleep separately. It’s not that uncommon, and there’s a good reason people do it. We all need a certain amount of sleep to get through our days, and sometimes sleeping in the same bed with someone every night disrupts that!
If you have to urge to sleep separately from your husband or wife, there’s nothing wrong with that (as long as you both agree). Go through a little sleep separation and the rest will fall into place! Just make sure you’re spending time together during the day if you’re not getting your night snuggles in.
