You might lose if you don’t snooze

Rather than be like the 60s and 70s sitcoms where married couples slept in separate twin beds, some couples are getting divorced because of sleep issues like snoring.

A recent survey from a mattress company found 31 percent of married Americans wished they could file for a sleep divorce.

Houston divorce attorney Robert Clark said couples should work on solutions like with a counselor or a doctor.

"I've had a couple of clients that say they just can't live together and they can't sleep together because their spouse is snoring so loud it's just keeping them from getting sleep," said Clark. "They're looking for a way to just get through their day and not be sleep deprived the entire day.”

Other sleep issues include PTSD, restless leg syndrome and even shift work.

"It's mainly the other spouse is sleep deprived and they've looked for solutions and they can't find one," said Clark.

He said divorce should be the last choice.

According to the National Sleep Foundation, 12 percent of married couples sleep in separate beds.

Dual master bedrooms are becoming a hot new amenity in luxury homes.
