Married and sleeping alone?  You’re not alone
Married and sleeping alone? You’re not alone

A new study finds that 30-percent of married people choose to sleep in separate beds.  The report from Ryerson University says the most common reasons people gave for sleeping separately were: snoring, issues with kids, and incompatible sleep schedules.

Study author, Dr. Colleen Carney, says that separate sleeping arrangements don’t necessarily signal trouble in the relationship. Carney says if you’re doing it for practical reasons then it’s probably a good idea that will keep both of you well-rested and less likely to be cranky, but that you should be worried if you’re sleeping separarely to avoid turmoil.
