What Is Sleep Divorce And Can It Save Your Relationship

Spread the love

For many, the term ‘Sleep Divorce’ might suggest relationship issues, but that’s not the case. ‘Sleep Divorce’ simply means that partners choose to sleep in separate rooms instead of sharing a bed. This practice is often adopted when couples experience decreased sleeping compatibility. Various factors can contribute to this decision, such as excessive snoring, restlessness or differing sleep schedules.

We all know how frustrating it can be to miss out on a good night’s sleep. Even the smallest annoyance can set you off. This lack of sleep can strain your relationship, leading to what’s known as a ‘sleep divorce.’

According to a study by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM), more than one-third of people say they occasionally or consistently sleep in different bedrooms. “We know that poor sleep can worsen your mood, and those who are sleep-deprived are more likely to argue with their partners. There may be some resentment toward the person causing the sleep disruption which can negatively impact relationships,” Dr Seema Khosla, pulmonologist and spokesperson for the AASM said.
