My wife and I don't go to bed at the same time. I usually stay up much later. This is good because she needs the tv on to fall asleep and I cant have it on to sleep. So she falls asleep with it on and when I ready t go to bed I can come in and turn it off.

we do, most of the time. we love to go to bed at the same time, but we can not do it all the time. once one is already tired and the one has still something to do, one has to rest ahead of the other. sometimes my wife goes to bed early as i am still working. she stays at home doing most of the chores while i usually arrives home at 10pm.

Since I work retail, I work odd hours so we don't get to do many things together... There are times I get off from work around 9 or 10 at night... Since we don't get to do family thing together as often as we'd like to, we try to keep things things together as much as we can... Going to bed is one things we do... When I work late, girls, my girl friend & my daughter, wait up till I come home, we tuck in my daughter together, then we go to bed at the same time... If one of us is not tired, we try to make compromises, one day, we'll goto bed, the next we'll try to stay up together for little bit...

Not usually. If she is tired I tell her to go ahead and go to bed. I don't sleep well at night so if I'm not tired I will stay up longer until I am tired then go to bed. She usually is in bed before I am all the time unless she has things she must do that are pressing then she's in bed after I am.

We do! It is a comforting part of our relationship, and one that I enjoy. We might not both fall asleep at the same time, but the cuddle time is appreciated by both. For me, if my husband falls asleep before I do, I use the time to catch up on to do lists, or crochet projects that I have laying around, or time to catch up on my shows that I have taped to watch sometime. It is a part of my life that I would not change!

Usually. We are just boyfriends and girlfriends now and we still live with our own family so we cannot really sleep together so much. But on weekends, I go to their house and sleepover them. Most of the time, we go to bed at the same time. I now can't remember when was the time we don't go to bed at the same time. Maybe it was a time when I am really tired. But at the time, my girlfriend is also in the room just fixing something, but still not technically in the bed.
