More Couples Aren't Sleeping Together, but Lost Love Isn't Always Why

More and more couples are starting to sleep separately -- but that doesn't necessarily mean they're unhappy.

A housing developer even told WFTX that more homes have two master bedrooms.

"About 15-20 percent of our buyers are interested in the dual master-suite concept," said home builder Gary Aubuchon.

A sex therapist says couples sleeping alone doesn't always mean that the relationship is on the rocks, either.

"If your partner's sleep is being interrupted consistently, that could lead to some resentment in the relationship," said sex therapist Alicia Allen.

She said that health reasons, such as snoring or acid reflux, are the main reason she sees couples sleeping apart.
