Mr Peng ALWAYS wants to go to bed before I do. Before when we didn’t have a TV in our bedroom, I’d usually stay downstairs for 2-3 hours after he went to bed, but now that we have a TV, I make it a point to go to bed whenever he wants, no excuses. I’ve found that it’s better for us and for our relationship. It felt weird to not go to bed at the same time. The only problem is now that since I require less sleep, I wake up way earlier than him, and it is kind of annoying for him (I get up, make coffee, turn on the tv downstairs, etc) whereas before, when I went to bed later than him, we’d wake up around the same time.
What about you? What are your bedhabits? What do you find works best for your relationship, especially if you both have different sleep schedules/habits?

I have to wake-up earlier for work in the morning, so I go to bed first. We’ve developed this routine where when I go to bed Mr. Calioc comes and lays with me for about 10 minutes, and then he gets up and goes back to his computer. He usually goes to bed about 2 hours after me. We do this on the weekend too because I’m afraid that if I stay up late on the weekends it will be too difficult for me to get to bed during the week. Sometimes he will turn off the computer and go to bed when I do, but only if he’s had a hard day or isn’t feeling well.

Almost always we go to bed at the same time. Sometimes he wants to stay up so we compromise by watching a show in bed together on our computers then fall asleep togehter. I always get up earlier than him, like you, and it bother’s him sometimes, but I couldn’t fix that by staying up later than him – he’d probably out last me anyway 🙂

I’m a night owl so I’m usually always up at least 2 or 3 hours later than my SO. So when he’s ready to go to bed I go with him and we watch tv. When he falls asleep I usually get up and read or watch tv in the living room or get online. I wish I had a more normal sleeping schedule but it’s almost impossible for me to go to sleep before 3 in the morning.

We make it a point to go to bed at the same time. Sometimes I stay up later than him and it’s suprisingly lonely when I go to bed and he’s already asleep. Its our time to reconnect after the day, to cuddle and chat.

We almost always go to bed at the same time and make a point of it. FH has to get up way before I do but I still try to go to bed at the same time he does. It’s my favorite time of the day. It’s our time to talk and reconnect and etc….

We usually go to bed at the same time, although sometimes if I have a lot of work or one of us isn’t tired, we don’t. I hate it when that happens, it always feels like something is wrong. Plus, if we don’t go to bed at the same time, the chances of other nocturnal activities occurring are significantly lessened. So going to bed at the same time is pretty important for us!

We go to bed at the same time. I will lay in bed and read or watch TV if I can’t sleep the same goes for him. But he wakes up an hour or so before I do. And most of the time he lays there and cuddles with me or gets up and takes care of all our "kids"

We try to bed at the same time. We are both major believers of no TVs or computers in bedrooms, so occassionally one of us will stay up later then the other. If that does happen, the person who is staying up later always makes a point to tuck the one going to bed in.

We stay in a good routine…we have our nightly shows that we watch, almost always make dinner together, and head to bed at the same time.
I think it brings us closer, being on the same schedule. =)

We always go to bed at the same time – my rule not his. But PrettyKitty, I like that idea of tucking eachother in! Maybe that’s a good compromise when I’m exhausted and he wants to watch the end of the basketball game. 🙂

We always go bed together. In the event one of us is not tired we still go to bed and watch tv in the bedroom. It is about having the comfront of knowing that we are next to each other.

It used to be that he’d be in bed early for one of his classes the next morning, and I’d be the one sitting up reading or playing on his laptop (but always in bed next to him). Now he’s the one staying up all night doing business stuff, and I crash before him!
It’s actually really cute – he takes my glasses off when I fall asleep before I intend to

We almost always go to bed at the same time and wake up at the same time, too. If I’m really tired, I’ll offer that he can stay up later, but he never does (unless I have a cold and go to bed at 7 or something). Like the others, we compromise and I’ll doze off on the couch if he wants to stay up late.
We have an easier time falling asleep together, and it’s been really good for us both.

During the week are bed/sleep habits are similar – go to bed at the same time and get up around the same time. But on the weekends, he likes to sleep in longer than I do, but if I get out of bed he wakes up so I try to lay in bed quietly so he can sleep in longer, but sometimes it’s too much and I’ll try to sneak away to watch tv in the other room, but he always wakes up 🙂
