Stop sleeping together seems to be the advice from Dr Stanley who set up one of the first sleep study laboratories and is based at the University of Surrey!
He told the British Science Festival that sleeping together seemd to worsen a night of sleep and that if one partner awakes there is a 50% chance the other will, too. Sleep, he says, is a crucial part of staying healthy and often ignored.
Well, he knows about this much better than I do! But we do often have clients seeking a divorce on the grounds the other refuses to sleep with them. This would be a divorce on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour. Of course they refer to sex but sleeping in separate beds is often thought of as an indication of a problem these days.
Let us be clear though; no sex by agreement and sleeping apart by agreement is--perhaps obviously--not unreasonable is it?
So, if you take the doctors advice do make sure it is with the agreement of your spouse!
