Did you know that one out of every four couples sleep in separate beds? That’s according to the National Sleep Foundation. Our Shine viewers confirmed that sleeping apart is not uncommon. In fact, when we polled our Shine Facebook family the number of couples who sleep separately was even greater than the national statistic.

Deb from Iowa writes, “Separate and love it”.
