Which side are you on?
More than one in ten couples have rows over who sleeps on which side of the bed – and women usually win. Battles over who should sleep nearest the door in case of intruders are most common. Other bust-ups happen over who sleeps nearest the radiator. Researchers for Premier Inn questioned 2,000 adults and found that 80 per cent have slept on the same side since their relationship started.
But 22 per cent said they slept on a different side with their ex-partner. Around one in 20 men are not happy with the side they sleep on. “The ‘correct’ side seems to be fundamental to a good night’s sleep,” the Daily Express quoted Claire Haigh, of Premier Inn, as saying.
