Is sleeping in separate beds good for your relationship?

Nearly one in four couples sleep in separate bedrooms or beds, according to a 2015 survey by the National Sleep Foundation. A 2013 study from Toronto’s Ryerson University puts that number at 30-40 percent. For many, sleeping in separate beds is a practical decision, made with the goal of both partners having a good night’s sleep.
“A good night’s sleep is important: when we have too little, we are likely to awake in a bad mood and be more emotional,” claims Dr. Amanda Zayde, a licensed clinical attachment-based psychologist in New  York  City  quoted  in  the  Huffington Post.
Adding, “people have become used to having their own space, and they don’t necessarily want to relinquish it as they enter into a relationship. Most couples who elect to sleep separately find it to be positive for the relationship.”
Author of the Ryerson University survey Colleen Carney said, “I think the idea of ‘sleep divorce’ is an unfair term. People can have very good and satisfying relationships sleeping apart,” she added.
