More Americans are choosing to sleep in separate beds from their partners. According to the National Sleep Foundation, one-quarter of American couples sleep in separate bedrooms. Between snoring, apnea, and disruptions from kids or pets, there is a growing belief that sleeping alone may be a good alternative to cuddling up with your partner in order to get the best sleep possible. Some couples have even claimed that having separate beds have saved them from divorce. So if sleeping in separate quarters leads to more rest, why arent more couples adapting this type of lifestyle? Experts say that most believe that admitting to sleeping separately may leave the couple feeling shameful and fearful of what other people may think of their relationship.
