Bed sharing 'unhealthy'

11th September 2009

Sleep expert Dr Neil Stanley says that couples should consider sleeping apart for the good of their health and relationship.

He told the British Science Festival how bed sharing can cause rows over snoring and duvet-hogging and robs precious sleep. One study found that, on average, couples suffered 50% more sleep disturbances if they shared a bed.

Dr Stanley, who sleeps separately from his wife, says couples were never meant to share beds and that the modern tradition of the marital bed only began with the industrial revolution when people moving to overcrowded towns found themselves short of living space.
