We go to sleep and wake up together 99% of the time.  If anything, I’m the one who sleeps in and he doesn’t wake me.

I let him sleep, I’d be pretty grouchy if he woke me up when I wanted to sleep in.

Haha we have an unspoken do not wake me up rule.  Sometimes he sleeps in, sometimes I sleep in, but unless it’s almost noon or we need to be somewhere, we leave each other be.

Eh BF is still asleep and I think he went to bed an hour after me. He keeps somewhat weird hours, so its good for him to sleep. I’ll wake him up eventually….

Depends.  My FI works nights so he got home at 7 AM today and is still sleeping, but he probably didn’t get much sleep at work (sometimes he can!).  If we had “plans” as in we said “hey why don’t we go do that cool thing maybe at some point” then I’d go in probably around now and say “you still wanna do that thing with the stuff” and he’ll say “yeah” and roll over to sleep for another hour lol.  He is a champ sleeper.  If he was doing what your hubby is doing today I’d probably be more apt to pounce on him 🙂  bc I know he slept well.  Maybe he’s coming down with a cold or something?

We almost always go to sleep together, but I have yet to be the one to wake up before him.  He lets me sleep in until whenever, usually 2-3 hours after he gets up, sometimes as much as 5 hrs!  Yeah, I can sleep A LOT.

We go to sleep together all the time, but he sleeps in LATE and it drives me insane. So around 9 or 9:30 I’ll start coffee and/or bacon and that’ll get him up!

He wakes me up every weekend at 6am and it’s the most annoying thing ever. He will pull my arm, feet or whatever to get me up! But this weekend having found out I’m pregnant he has left me alone, although this morning I woke up early and got up and let him sleep, though I kept thinking the entire time “Maybe he should get a bit of his own medicine”.

If I’m up first I usually grab the computer and do stuff online while in bed until he wakes up… sometimes he wakes up from the motion of me getting up from the bed, but he’s also able to fall right back asleep immediately.

He gets up very early for work (5 am), and usually he passes out about 9 or 9:30 even if it’s a weekend. So naturally he wakes up before me, but he knows better than to wake me up when I’m asleep, haha. I am not a nice person when someone wakes me up.

But if he does sleep later than me, I just let him sleep. If he’s sleeping, he probably needs it.

Even if I go to bed late I get up at early. I don’t wake him if he sleeping or really tired. I’m more apt to leave him note and go out or do chores or whatever until he wakes up.

You hit a nerve with me and my future hubby.  HE CAN SLEEP THROUGH AN EARTHQUAKE AND SLEEPS ALL MORNING!  It sometimes bothers me that I am up hours later he walks out for “breakfast” at 3pm.  

I used to try to wake him up but I realize that it’s just making him grumpy.  I let him sleep even though I would rather be cuddled with him or taking a walk in the park.

We let each other sleep in but do say good morning and the one who wants to sleep later just rolls over and goes back to sleep. We have breakfast together a lot thou. We figure we should enjoy it before we have kids.

@Irish-bride:

When I stay over at his house, he will wake up bouncy and refreshed and super excited HOURS before I want to move, and I let him know it. Seriously, he bounces on the bed until I wake up and then gets right in my face, smiles, and says, “Good morning, sugar.” Cute, but ARGH. When I am at my house and he’s at his, he sleeps forEVER and I call him and wake him up; then he gets to be the grumpy one.

It’s funny because I was actually debating whether to call him and wake him up or not; I’m at work, and he’s off on Sundays, so he should bring me some lunch…right? RIGHT. 🙂
