    Most of the time we do but if one of us wants to stay up and watch something it’s no biggie. As far as alone time goes, I work 9-5 everyday and he works longer shifts less often so I’m home alone until 9:30 a couple of nights a week. It’s a good amount of alone time.

    No..he works 11pm to 7am..so he sleeps during the day 5 days a week.  And on his days off he usually goes to bed earlier than me.

    Depends on his work schedule. I am strictly 8-5 so I’m in bed by midnight at the latest. This week he’s shooting nights so he’s going to bed at 7am, just when I’m getting ready to leave the house. I hate when things shoot nights because I feel like I don’t get a restful night of sleep without the FI next to me.

    No, he stays up much later than me because he finds it difficult to sleep and it is SO ANNOYING.  I wish he would just go to bed!  He also sleeps in much later.  He works from home, so he can make his own schedule.  Yes, I’m jealous of that, but it also drives me nuts.

    my FI LOOOOOVES his sleep and claims he needs a minimum 8 hours or else it’s just a rotten day lol.  What a dork.  Just wait til we have kids!!!  Last year he was working shift work so our sleep schedules were waaaaaaaaaaaaaay different… However if he was working days, I’d usually go and get into bed at the same time as him bc I like to have a few minutes to snuggle and kiss and say our I love yous and whatnot.  But then he’ll roll over and promptly fall asleep and I’ll spend an hour or two reading or on my laptop.  I like my alone time, but I’m also a night owl

    We have the same work and sleep schedule. Sometimes when I want to get in bed and read before bed he gets in bed too and I wish he wouldn’t 🙂

    It depends. We usually lay down together but I’m usually more tired than FH so he will come lay down until I fall asleep and then he will get back up and go watch TV or pay a video game.

    Absolutely. I don’t usually fall asleep as fast as he does (I envy his trait to just…. sleep so much) but we always go to bed at the same time.

    When we can always.  But we both work the odd night from time to time and then we don’t.  If I’m not tired but he is I just read a book or do emails or watch tv in bed or something.  I like being next to him.  Pathetic, eh?

    He likes for us to go to bed at the same time, and I prefer it that way too. It doesn’t always happen. Sometimes I have a hard time falling asleep and need to get up for a while. He’s always out like a light in minutes.

    Nope, he works tues-fri 12-10pm, and then wed-sat 9-7pm alternating weeks, so there’s lots of times he’s not even home when I go to bed before he’s even home from work, or if I’m up when he gets home he’s not ready for bed.  And I have lots of weeknights and every other saturday alone by default so I don’t really ever have to try to get alone time from him.

    Usually we do. Sometimes he stays up 30-60 min later if he’s working and sometimes I sleep in 30-60 min later but I’d say 90% of our sleeping is done together.
