Nope! My husband is the most understanding & sweet guy on the planet. He’s told me to wake him up if I ever needed ANYTHING at anytime! That includes just to chat about christmas or if I’m not feeling well and need some comforting. Now I don’t abuse this by any means because he does need his rest but I love knowing my sweetheart cares about me even more then sleeping lol.

@Pamelor55: Not usually annoyed as long as I don’t keep him up more than a few minutes. I have really bad nightmares very often… apparently this is a disorder or something, I don’t know, but I’m pretty plagued by them. He’s very sweet when I cling onto him after waking up from one and wanna tell him about it.
He’d be very mildly annoyed if I just woke him up on purpose for something semi-trivial though. I don’t think he’d make a problem from it but he wouldn’t love it.

My SO would definitely be annoyed. I would never wake him up out of his sleep for something that was not important. I woulnever annoyed if he woke me up to talk about issues that could wait until I woke up.

I think my SO would be annoyed if it was something that could wait. I would be too though!
My SO is an extremely light sleeper and has trouble falling asleep as is, so I feel like it’d be a little inconsiderate to wake him up just to chat.

I think DH would mostly be confused. He’d probably spend a while trying to figure out if there was actually a reason for me to have woken him up. I’d guess he’d then ask if we could wait til morning. He’s far more rational than me, though. If it were me getting woken up, I’d be pissed. There’s no reason to not respect someone’s sleep schedule!

I have insomnia, so I hate it if fiance wakes me up – I go to be about an hour earlier than him, and it’s very unusual for me to fall asleep before he comes to bed. If I am asleep and something wakes me, it might be another hour before I can sleep again. So if fiance wakes me up to talk about trivial crap, I’m usually pretty furious with him.
If it’s something he urgently needed to talk about, then I can kind of understand (I’d prefer to wait until morning, though), but if it’s just to chat or something, I’ll be pretty pissed.

I wouldn’t just be annoyed, i’d be pissed if my husband did that too me. Most people already don’t get enough sleep/don’t sleep well. Fit your conversations into the other 16 hours of the day when he’s awake!

He would be annoyed if it wasnt an emergency and he also wouldnt pay me much attention and the same goes for me. I would be like, “You woke me up for this?!?”

He’d be annoyed if it wasn’t something really important or sex.

He’d be annoyed if I woke him up to ask him about something small like what color curtains we should put in the guest bedroom, but if I really needed to talk about something that was bothering me, or if it was an emergency or sex, he wouldn’t care. He has a hard time going back to sleep.

My husband already has a difficult time falling or staying asleep. He’d be really angry at me if I woke him up just to chat. I tend to stay up later than he does. Actually, he’s sleeping right now while I’m on the Bee. If there’s something I want him to know that’s not important, I’ll send him an email to read tomorrow.

@Pamelor55: Did you really do that? What were you thinking?! Why?! No I don’t believe it! You didn’t really. Did you? I refuse to believe!
In answer to your question, no, my SO woud not be annoyed. He’d be livid. And probably confused as to why I had suddenly lost my mind along with my manners.

He wouldn’t be annoyed, but I wouldn’t do it. I’d wait until morning to have that conversation.

To talk about things we need to do he’d be annoyed. Although I would be annoyed if he did the same to me. He gets very grumpy if he’s woken up because he has a hard time falling back to sleep.

Him? Even if he seemed 100% awake, no telling what he’d remember if anything. A “seriously you have to get up” … like family in the hospital and he’d get up and be normal.
Me… I’d likely just growl at you and go back to snoring. Waking me up enough to say “love you, going out for x, brb”… is fine, and I’ll remember it later after I wake up and realize he’s not there. Otherwise you better start off by explaining the emergency measures that need taken to stay alive “House on fire, open the window!” or “Flood! We have to get upstairs!”. I’d get up for family in the hospital too, but I’d be groggy and on semi-emergency autopilot.
PS, I wouldn’t mind being woken up for sex either, but make it quick so I can go back to sleep. 🙂
