How to Save Your Marriage
This entry was posted on January 8, 2013.
Marriage is tough. Over 50% of all marriages end in divorce. And those marriages that don't end in divorce, aren't always happy.
Nearly 1 in 4 couples sleep in separate rooms because of sleep disturbances caused by the other partner. Evidence shows that couples suffer 50% more sleep disturbances when they sleep together. In fact, it is estimated that 60% of homes will have dual master bedrooms by 2015 because of this trend.
Sleeping apart can have many benefits since couples often have different tastes. One person may like the bed warm, whereas the other person may want to sleep cool. One couple may snore and the other one may toss and turn at night. It makes sense to be able to sleep in a way more suited to your taste.
However, sleeping apart isn't as glorious as it may seem. While women tend to sleep less soundly when sharing a bed, men actually sleep better when they have their partner by their side. Nighttime is also when most couples communicate their thoughts and share their daily experiences. Not to mention the lack of intimacy that can occur from sleeping apart.
So what's the answer? A lot of the disturbances that interrupt sleep can be solved by finding the right mattress. If you mattress matches your personal comfort and support levels, problems like snoring and tossing and turning are less likely to occur.
But everyone has different comfort and support levels, how do you find one that will work for both parties? You don't. Instead, getting a dual bladder with a softside waterbed mattress like the Violet 11" Mid Fill Softside Waterbed, allows each person to customize the bed to their needs.
A softside waterbed heater also allows each couple to control the temperature of their side of the bed. The contouring effect of the water keeps the spine relaxed in any position, preventing uncomfortable tossing and turning. Since allergens can not get trapped in the vinyl waterbed, the nasal cavity is less likely to swell, reducing the chance of snoring throughout the night.
So before you decide to remodel your house, remember that you can give your spouse an uninterrupted night's sleep without leaving their side.
