Is Sleeping With Your S.O. Bad For Your Health?

Unless you've adopted a Lucy-and-Ricky sleeping arrangement (two twin beds with a nightstand in-between), chances are, you are snuggling up to your S.O. in the sack every night. Well, believe it or not, there are benefits that come with having a bunkmate that don't include the obvious (wink, wink!).
To dig deeper under the covers of this topic, Wall Street Journal contributor Heidi Mitchell tapped a neurologist from the Johns Hopkins Center for Sleep. "Today, we know that a person's touch can release the hormone oxytocin (the 'love hormone'), which in turn can help you sleep more soundly," explains Mitchell. But, this is not always the case, as we're sure one too many sleepless nights can prove. Add factors like having to deal with a thrasher, snore king (or queen), or conflicting temperature differences, and you may be better off sleeping solo if you want to get a good night's rest.
While we're not sure sleeping preferences will ever be enough to break a relationship, a look at the video below might help you figure out the best method for your sleeping madness. (Huffington Post)
