Different biological clocks

I'm a night person stuck in a day job and married to a morning person. Ideally my clock would have me stay up really late and then sleep in as late as I wanted to. But I have children who have to be gotten to school and an 8 to 5 job. But on weekends I sleep in at least a little bit or I turn into a zombie. And he knows more or less (well 75% anyway) to let me sleep if I don't have some place I need to be. When we retire it will be interesting though. He'll be wanting to be up and doing things and I'll be wanting to sleep in and stay up late at night. This will all take some adjusting, no doubt. So how do you deal with living with a person who's biological clock is different from yours?

For the most part, it isn't a problem. I'm normally in bed before he is, and on the weekends I'm up before he is. He likes to sleep in on the weekends and I don't blame him. So I normally get up, fix coffee, and get started with my day. I've just learned that unless we are going on a trip or something, we won't be doing much before noon on the weekends. I have never been one to sleep late, and if I do on the rare occassion it means I'm realllyyy tired. lol Although, he doesn't sleep as late on teh weekends as he used to when we first moved in together, so maybe I'm rubbing off on him hahaha and he doesn't stay up as late as he used to either, hmmm, maybe it's his age kicking in LOL

maybe your biological clocks are growing toward each other a bit... :-)
