MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Snoring, sleep talking or hogging the blankets can make sleeping with another person impossible. The National Sleep Foundation found some married couples choose to get a better night’s rest by sleeping apart.
“Sometimes it’s so loud you just laugh, you know that’s all you can do,” said Nancy Scott.
Scott tries to keep a sense of humor when it comes to her husband’s snoring.
“I tried a new set of ear plugs last night. Well, they fell out,” she said.
After too many restless nights, the Bloomington couple decided it was time to sleep in separate rooms.
Scott is far from alone. A survey from the National Sleep Foundation finds that almost one in four married couples sleep in separate beds or separate rooms.
