Does your spouse’s snore shiver you awake in the middle of the night? Is your bed partner pregnant and inadvertently encroaching on your side of the bed? Well, you might want to consider a sleep divorce. Don’t worry—it’s not as severe as it sounds. It’s a sleeping arrangement that involves the two of you going to bed on separate mattresses or in different bedrooms—all for the sake of deep slumber and preserving happiness in your marriage. Here’s a guide for going your separate ways while staying together.
Communication is Key
When it comes to filing for sleep divorce, “the talk” seems like a daunting topic to broach. But it’s really all about swapping “you” for “we.” For example, don’t say, “Your tossing and turning keep me up at night.” Instead, tell your spouse, “We have different sleep styles.” This simple modification in language can make all the difference in establishing an earnest tone as opposed to an apathetic one. After all, seeking a new sleeping arrangement isn’t about airing out grievances to place blame. Sleep divorce is all about prioritizing quality of sleep for both of you—and ultimately, prioritizing your marriage.
