Is Sleeping Apart The New Norm?

By Sharon Dalzell @Dalzells_Beds

The trend for couples sleeping apart appears to show no sign of abating. According to a recent Sleep Council survey, some 15% of people said that they sleep apart. And it’s not just for the occasional night. Sleep Divorce is on the rise!

Couples sleep apart more now than they did a decade ago. In fact, the number of people sleeping separately to their partner has more than doubled in the past ten years.

The Sleep Council’s report found that of those couples that are choosing to sleep alone, 38% have slept apart for more than five years.

Why Do Couples Sleep Apart

Is Sleeping Apart Good For Couples?

Couples sleep apart for a number of reasons – snoring, body heat, weight, and different sleeping patterns are all common reasons. Partner disturbance is one of the main major contributing factors to the rise in sleep divorces.

By far, the most common reason for partner disturbance is snoring. Snoring is a common complaint, but it can be particularly disruptive if it’s the reason why one person is not getting a good night’s sleep.

Half the population snore at some time in their life, with more men snoring than women, so it’s no wonder that couples choose to sleep in separate beds. In fact, the Sleep Council’s research found that more than half of those who chose to sleep in a separate bed to their partner said it had improved their sleep ‘a lot’.

Whether it’s choosing to sleep in a separate bed or an entirely different room, many couples are now choosing to sleep apart to help them sleep better.

Dual Zone Beds

Choose Sleep

It’s now widely accepted that sleep plays a crucial role in our health. Making sure sleep is your number one priority is more important than any concerns you may have about sleeping separately to your partner.

Couples’ focus should be on getting a good quality night’s sleep rather than worrying about sleeping in separate beds or separate bedrooms, which could be the ideal situation for some couples.
