    We both have our own alarm clock. I use an actual alarm clock (wake up to music, can’t stand the buzzer!) and he uses his cell phone on his side for his alarm clock. (He wakes about an hour later than me)  I don’t think he and I could share. I’d have to set it for him after I got up every morning…that wouldn’t work. Plus, we both like waking to different sounds (me-music and him a typical alarm buzzer). 🙂

    Ours is on my side.  We have an alarm that lets you set two separate times, which is a must for us since I get up at 6:15 and he gets up at 8:30.  Since I wake up at the fist quiet beep and he can let it go off for 10 minutes without hearing it, it’s a no brainer to have it on my side.  Plus, I’m gone by the time he gets up, so he doesn’t have to reach over me or anything.

    We each have our own alarm clocks, each on our own side (well, I use my cell phone). He gets up earlier than me AND he snoozes for like 30 min, so if he were reaching over me every 7 minutes to snooze, I might kill him. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with having 2, especially if you both wake up at different times.

    We have one but it is on our dresser so it is not on either side but it has two settings one for me and one for him.

    I voted that we have our own clocks (kind of)… I have my alarm clock which is the main clock. If my hubby needs to keep track of time, he uses his cell phone alarm so he doesn’t have to touch mine. Even when he is just checking to see what time it is, he will pick up his phone before rolling over to view my clock.

    It’s on his side – he wakes up earlier than me, takes a shower and then wakes me up (he takes longer showers in the morning and likes to have breakfast). I do have my own alarm clock though, but I only use it when I need to wake up earlier than him.

    For the first couple of months living together, we had one on each side.  Until recently we used the one on his side but it can have several alarms so we had mine and then his.  Now that I get up super early I use my phone so I don’t wake him up.

    We have one and it is on his side.  He has to leave before I do, so he gets up, showers, and then wakes me up.  I prefer him waking me up to dealing with the alarm clock, anyway.

    We have one, and it sits between us because we have a bookshelf headboard so we can do that 🙂

    He does wake-up earlier than me, though, and he usually comes in a half hour later to make me up (even though I hear the alarm go off). I’m not a morning person.

    Once we get a new bed, we’ll obviously be putting the alarm on his side.

    We have an iHome alarm clock that allows us to dock our iPod and set two different alarms. It’s on my side because if I’m not the one to turn the alarm off, I’ll often fall back asleep, but having the two alarms is nice.

    @sapphirebride – we have the same thing! it works for us. He sets his for about an hour before mine, and I don’t even HEAR it. He does his thing and I wake up when my alarm goes off, and don’t have to reach over him b/c he’s already dressed and out of bed.

    We have one alarm clock, but it has duo alarms.  It is on his side, as he is the one that gets up earlier and then that way when he leaves, I have to get out of bed to turn it off which makes it a little easier to get up for good!!

    my husband sets his alarm for an hour 0before I want to get up.  The radio goes off for 10 minutes before he gets up (argh) and goes to the gym.  I get up on my own with my phone alarm while he’s gone (which is much better for me)  I snooze twice and then stretch for about 3 minutes before I can actually get up.  My routine totally changes my attitude about the day–its important!
