I sleep very lightly and struggle with insomnia. It is worse when I get woken after some sleep (say at 5am - I cannot get back to sleep). We go to bed late (dh likes to stay up - if I go to bed before him then he wakes me when he arrives and I cannot get back to sleep so I stay up until he goes to bed). He appears able to exisit on about 5-6 hours a night. Am I unreasonable to ask him to sleep in the spare room (or sleep there myself) occasionally when he has a really early start? I find that if we are up until 1.30 - 2 and then I get woken again at 5.30 then I can't function at work all day. However dh was not happy at the suggestion so wondered if I was BU.
YANBU, but IMO it should be you moving to the spare room just because it's you who needs the solitude. DH can't really stop you if you are the one to move. I get why he would be upset with it, but he's being unreasonable if he actually tries to stop you.
Cant even see why you would need to ask. My husband often has to be up at 4am to get to his jobs for 7am. He goes to bed at about 9pm, so there is no way I would be going to bed so early. I just sleep in the spare room rather than disturb him.
I cant see why anyone should be upset, good sleep is vital to our health.
