I was reading advice on some website, and someone mentioned “going to bed and waking up together will really help” in regards to connecting with your spouse.
It got me to thinking…in every relationship I have been in, I have always gone to bed at the same time as my significant other, and we have always gotten out of bed at the same time each morning. Every night and every morning for almost two decades. And now, with a 2.5 year old, we get up together as a family with the kid (sleep in different rooms, and of course the kid goes to bed two hours before us, though).
So, is this weird? Doesn’t everyone go to bed at night and get out of bed in the morning at the same time as their partner/family? I can’t imagine going to bed at a different time than my wife, or getting out of bed at a different time than my wife/kid!
