It can be nice sharing a bed with your partner; what with the spooning and the cuddling when it's cold. But then there's the snoring, and the heavy breathing, and the sleep talking, and sometimes it can feel like more hassle than its worth.
If you suffer from a partner who does any of the above, then luckily recent research from the University of Leeds gives you some firm, scientific reasoning to boot your other half out of bed; because all that disturbance could actually be damaging your health, according to the Independent.
The study, which was carried out by the University in conjunction with Silentnight, discovered that 29% claim their lack of a decent night's sleep is all thanks to their partners. The findings indicated that poor inadequate sleep can increase the risk of depression, heart disease, stroke and respiratory failure.
Yeah, not ideal.
"Almost a third of Brits say they can't get a good night's sleep because they are disturbed by their partner," sleep expert Dr Nerina Ramlakhan from Silentnight said.
Oh, and it also ups the likelihood of you getting a divorce. So for the sake of your marriage, it might be worth getting that spare room set up. If earplugs and eye masks don't work first, of course.
