How do you deal with differing sleep needs?

Asked by ccrow (8082points) November 28th, 2009

My husband tends to be an early to bed, early to rise person, where I am more of a night owl. I also need less sleep than he does. These two things combine into a recurring source of friction.

When I’m alone, I generally go to bed around 11:30PM (sometimes later), & get up about 6:30AM. He tends to need more like 9 hours, but when he announces he’s going to bed at 9:30, I am just not ready that early.
How do any of you handle this type of situation?
