The title speaks for itself. My DH and I have very different ideas about bedtime. We both need to be up around 6am, but he can function off of 4-5 hours of sleep and be fine and I need 7-8. He always kind of sulks when I say I’m going to bed at the end of the night and he always comes to bed later. He never purposefully makes me feel bad, but I know that quality time is his love language and he would really want me to stay up later to spend more time during the week together.
So bees, I’m not sure if this will make me feel better or worse… but I can’t be the only adult that needs 7-8 hours of sleep to be a productive human being?!?! I need to know if I should feel bad or not when I head to bed around 9:45-10:15!!

We start to say we’ll go to bed soon around 930-10, but usually dont get in bed until 11. We have the alarm set for 7, but sometimes don’t get out of bed till 8.

We both wake up at 6am, and go to bed around 10:30-11. Sometimes a bit later if we feel like watching the 11:00 news. DH is the one who prefers to go to bed earlier, but I have always come to bed at the same time because I like sleeping.
On weekends, he wakes up at 6am still even if we’ve gone to bed at 12 or later, and I sleep until I wake up naturally (usually 7:30-8am)

Last night I went to bed at 6 and slept until my alarm woke me up at 6. It was a long day and I was tired.

I usually go to bed between 10 and 11:30 and get up between 6:30 and 7:15. My husband is a total night owl so he occasionally pouts when I go to bed, too. I sometimes make him come to bed with me so we can snuggle – I wear a sleep mask so the light doesn’t bother me.

Usually, we both go to bed together around 12-12:30 and we wake up at 7am at the lastest. Sometimes one of us will go to bed earlier or fall asleep on the couch watching TV. We’re both night owls and unless it’s been a grueling day, we are rarely asleep before 11pm.

I get up at 5:45am. I head upstairs between 9-9:30 depending on how tired I am. I’m asleep by 10. Im a teacher so I need all the energy I can get 🙂
but i do stay up later 1-2 nights a week to hang with DH. I can handle one night of less sleep and still be functional. Maybe try that? 1-2 nights stay up a bit later?

I’m so with you! Both FI and I like to go to bed around 10. Of course, there are nights that we go to bed at midnight, but that’s not too often. We work from home so there’s no rush in the morning but we wake up around 6-7. Looove waking up with the sunrise! I used to be one of those who could get away with only 4-5 hours of sleep but i think I’d probably go a bit mental if I were to do it now. I’m not a heavy sleeper normally and combined with drinking a full glass of water before bed every night means I’m up 1-2 times per night. My FI wouldn’t be able to function without adequate sleep.

I go to bed between 10-11 and get up at 7:30. FI goes to bed at same time and gets up at 6.
I couldn’t do what he does, I require way more sleep than him!

FI needs 7-8 hours of sleep or else he gets cranky, but I can do less and be fine. We’re both night owls and if I’m reading a good book or get caught up on web surfing, I may not go to bed until 1 or 2am but I instinctively wake up at 6:30am. Although I’m usually not out of bed until 7am.
FI works from home and is awake by 8am, but he’ll lay in bed and watch the news for an hour or so before he heads over to his office down the hallway. 😉

I’m in bed and passed out by 12:30 AM. I would love to go to bed around 10:30 PM, but FI doesn’t get home from work until 11:00 PM. If I want to see him for more than 5 minutes on work days, I have to stay up. I actually start cooking dinner at 9:00 or 10:00 PM on the nights he is working and stay up to have dinner and watch whatever our current show is with him. Depending on the day, I have to get up between 6 AM and 7:30 AM. It does really catch up with me from time to time, and I’ve been completely wiped out and exhausted this week.

FutureMrsGG: I am in the exact same boat!! We both have to get up at 6:30am. If I go to bed after 10:30 I feel sluggish and mehhh the next day. My FI can stay up till midnight easily and still get up no problem. I used to try and stay up with him but now I usually go to bed before him!

I am in bed by 8:30 at the latest and asleep by 9pm. My alarm goes off at 4:45. DH doesn’t have to get up until 7:30 so he usually stays up later than me. He used to sulk because he liked to cuddle on the couch, but Im a much nicer person when I get a full 8 hours of sleep 😉 Funny…he had an early meeting this past week and had to get up at 6 instead of 7:30….he was complaining all day about how tired he was, and of course I said “HA! I get up even early than that every day!” So I think he sees it from my side now!
