How Important Is Sleep Position to Your Relationship?

How you and your partner sleep together speaks volumes about your relationship. At least that is what the author of a newly released study told the Daily Mail in February (2015).

She went on to explain various positions and what each of them say about relationships. Our question is whether sleep position truly affects relationships. The jury is still out on that, especially since Sweet’s study is by... Read More

Sharing a bed with an infant, also known as co-sleeping, is a controversial practice in Western cultures. Yet thousands of parents engage in it regularly.

Those against co-sleeping are quick to point out that it could prove deadly. There is no definitive science that proves co-sleeping to be either good or bad. However, common sense and practical experience indicates that sharing a bed with an infant... Read More

Just Make Your Bed Already …

There was a day when a person would never leave the bedroom until the bed was made up properly. How things have changed.

Many things can cause couples to choose separate sleeping arrangements after years of marriage. For example, one partner... Read More
