This Bedroom Habit Is Crucial for a Happy Relationship

It's not what you think.

"I'm sorry for what I said when I was sleep-deprived." Sound familiar? We thought so. New research out of the University of Florida reveals that a good night's sleep may be the key to a better bond with your guy.

For the study, the authors asked 68 newlywed twosomes to (individually) document their relationship satisfaction, as well as how many hours they slept every day for seven days. After analyzing the data, the researchers found that spouses who slept more than their usual amount (which was around 7.5 hours, on average) were more likely to say they were happy with their union on that specific day.
Another interesting nugget: Husbands (but unfortunately, not wives) were more likely to report overall martial satisfaction on days when they scored extra sleep—even if they also recalled having negative interactions with their spouse that day. Translation: Scoring shuteye won't make you forget that he didn't wash the dishes—but it might make him forgive you for a similar violation. The study authors say further research is needed to figure out the reasons for this difference.

While we can't say we're shocked that getting enough sleep makes you a happier partner (let's face it, literally everyone is annoying when you're zonked), these findings are yet another reminder that sufficient snoozing is essential for overall health and happiness.

Can't remember the last time you loggedmore than seven hours? These bad sleep habits could be the reason for your under-eye bags (and rocky relationship)
