we have op­po­site sleep pat­terns

Woman (UK) - - Ask The Experts -

Q My hus­band has al­ways been a night owl, while I’m up with the sun. This has be­gun to re­ally spoil our re­la­tion­ship now he’s re­tired and I’m still at work. I have to be up at 7am on week­days, and week­end lie-ins throw me off kil­ter. He stays up late on his com­puter and sleeps some­times till noon. Of­ten, when he comes to bed he wakes me and then I can’t get back to sleep. Many times I’ve asked him to try and have rou­tines more in line with mine – af­ter all, I’m the one bring­ing in a wage. He says he’ll try but he can’t get to sleep if he comes to bed any ear­lier, and it doesn’t seem to bother him I have to sit around half the day on week­ends so we can do stuff to­gether. Am I be­ing un­rea­son­able?

It takes effort to al­ter sleep rou­tines, but it can be done
