Sleep divorce. Yep, it's a real thing according to 'Fox and Friends.' The hosts sat down with Dr. Carol Ash, director of sleep medicine at Meridian Health, to talk about a growing trend: couples choosing to sleep in separate rooms.
'Sleep is so important. and if you're really not sleeping well together, it's going to have an impact on your relationship. It really is ... so it's a problem for many couples. I mean think about it, you get up the next day, you're cranky.'
"Fox & Friends" reports 25 percent of couples in the U.S. have opted for this so-called 'sleep divorce,' which is commonly due to sleep interruptions. As Psychology Today notes, factors preventing couples from getting good sleep include: different sleep schedules, disrupted sleep, poor sleep equipment and sleep environment, divergent sleep habits and conflicts over co-sleeping.
We've heard about this before. Last year, Dr. Roshini Raj spoke with the anchors of the 'TODAY' show about sleeping apart:
'Sleep specialists actually say sleeping by yourself is better for your sleep quality. You're not disturbed by your partner moving or making a lot of noises, so this is not necessarily a bad sign.'
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports there has even been an increase in demand for new homes to have two separate master bedrooms. So ... have a snoring partner? Maybe it's OK to kick 'em to the couch.
