Couples who did not sleep enough ended up fighting with each other on an increasing frequency according to a study by the University of California. This new discovery revealed more information on how couples with sleepless nights could not deal with conflict while previous studies demonstrated how lack of sleep could impair romantic relationship. Even you sleep well most of the time, just one bad sleep will cause conflict with your partner the following day.
“Couples who fight more are less happy and less healthy. Our research helps illuminate one factor that leads couples to engage in unnecessary and harmful conflict by showing that couples experience more frequent and severe conflicts after sleepless nights.” Amie Gordon, the psychologist of University of California
If lately you’ve been fighting with your spouse more frequently, maybe it is time to check if both of you have enough sleep.
