Have you ever lived with somebody whose sleep schedule was opposite to yours?

Asked by Jeruba (52202points) October 21st, 2020

If so, how did you make it work?

In particular, how did you make it work in a marital or partnership relationship?

Or did you?

For years I worked nights and wife worked days and we never had any problems, just split responsibility with kids, supper, cleaning, Little League, Brownies, etc. If she wasn’t off I would do it, if I was dragged out she would do it. Marriage has to be a two way street.

My Ex would come up to read in bed about a half hour after me, just when I was ready to turn off the lights. He got up before me and that was usually the best hour of sleep I got.Mornings weren’t a problem (at least not for me) but the night time was kind of a pain.

My wife requires a solid 8 hours of sleep every night, and is usually in bed by 10. I on the other hand am usually up and about til 2 or 3 in the morning. The house is big. So with the bedroom door closed the tv can blare in the living room and she can’t hear a thing. Prior to the pandemic, I would usually be up before her and make her coffee then wake her for her morning ritual before work. Nowadays I nap at damned near any hour and love it.
