From a practical standpoint, separate beds can benefit quality of sleep, reports USA Today.
Jill Lankler, a New York clinical psychologist and life coach, says while that number seems high given the stigma that may still exist around separate beds, she’s seen more couples open to trying it.
“People are losing sleep. They are waking each other up, and there is this resentment that begins to build in a relationship,” she said. “If you don’t address that, obviously your relationship is going to suffer, your work suffers. It’s this cascade.”
