Couples Sleeping in Separate Bedrooms

Couples Sleeping in Separate Bedrooms

I recently read about celebrity couples who sleep in separate beds, bedrooms and even houses. It led me to wonder whether the rest of the population regularly sleeps apart from their partner. According to a 2005 Survey by the National Sleep Foundation, nearly one in four American couples sleep in separate bedrooms or beds. Can this be true?

Is this bad for your marriage/relationship? Is it better for your individual sleep? Among the celebrity couples who sleep apart: Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip sleep in separate bedrooms, and Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter sleep in their own houses! The article was published before their divorce was announced, but Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise apparently slept in separate bedrooms during their time together. See more celebrity couples who sleep apart in Celebrity Sleep: Famous Couples Who Sleep In Separate Beds from The Huffington Post.

Many of those separately-sleeping couples say that snoring is the reason they sleep apart.
