BEDROOM FIGHTS DECODED
noring, allowing kids to sleep in the bed and leaving the reading light on are among the many reasons why couples argue in the bedroom at least 167 times a year, a study has found. One in 10 couples in has a night-time fight at least twice a week over their partner’s “sound effects” while sleeping.
One in five lose two hours sleep every night because of noise, while 10% said they were even considering splitting up because of it. One-fifth of men admitted they woke themselves up with their own snoring or heavy breathing. Other reasons for fights include being too hot or too cold and a lack of passion on the bed.
The upside is that most of the arguments couples have in the bedroom are down to behaviours that are easy to resolve as a relationship develops.
