Not many Japanese couples sleep in separate beds for small houses or apartments. Again it's not because of any marital problems they have, they believe it's good for them.
A company called Bright Side conducted a study on why Japanese married couples choose to sleep separately. They got to know about their subjects and it made many of them like them. Then see the reasons-
Their sleep schedule is different
The first reason Japanese couples decide to go to bed separately is their different work schedules. Perhaps the husband or wife has to go to work early in the morning or return late at night, so they take care not to wake the neighbor or disturb his sleep. It can lead to incomplete sleep for anyone. So they spend the night in separate rooms so that both of them can have an uninterrupted and healthy sleep.
Children sleep with mother:
Japanese mothers sleep with their children and this is considered very important, so the father has to decide whether he wants to share the same bed or move to another room. Science has proven that babies sleep better with their mothers. It helps the baby maintain a stable temperature and heart rate and at the same time it reduces the chances of sudden infant death syndrome. Also, it contributes to the child gaining better self-esteem, becoming independent faster and doing well in school.
To them sleeping separately means peace
While many couples in our country who start sleeping alone might think that their relationship is deteriorating or breaking up, the Japanese see it differently. They value their sleep a lot and they don't want any disturbance while sleeping. This means they don't want their partner's snoring, erratic sleeping position, tossing and turning, restlessness to affect the other's sleep. Although many of them do not have the opportunity to sleep in different rooms, they still wish that they can get their beauty sleep.
Couples with a history of sleeping apart:
Japanese small size cots, beds or pillows suggest that they have a long history of sleeping alone. Even today, there are families who still use this type of bedding, especially because it does not take up a lot of space and is easy to store in the house.
So are you thinking of sleeping separately from your partner?
Do you think this type of practice could be better for your relationship?
