How long do you sleep at night?

Posting for traffic, how long do you sleep at night?
I’m studying full time for a degree and managing a part time job whilst often caring for my elderly father. I need around 10 hours each night but my DP complains it’s too much?!
Baffles me how some manage on 6 hours of less!

My ideal is 9. I usually get between 7 and 9. If I'm not out then I aim to go to bed at 10pm and up at 7am. I can't function well on less than 7, I can't think straight and my work suffers as well as my relationship as I feel less emotionally regulated. When I get 9 my work is of a much higher quality and I am a better mother and wife.

I don’t understand how an adult can get 10 hours a night! My alarm goes off at 6.15 on work days which means to fit 10 hours in I’d have to be asleep by 8.15pm … my 6 year old doesn’t usually go to bed until 7.45/8! I don’t think even he gets 10 hours …
I get between 6.5 and 7 hours usually. Asleep by around 11/11.30. My body would prefer a bit more, if I get into bed early and go off by 10.30 I feel better in the morning! But it’s very difficult to do that and have anything resembling an evening!

Really? I could sleep 10 hours a night without it impacting on my husband, if I went to bed at 9 and woke at 7. I don't do anything productive after 9pm, I just watch telly or read nonsense on my phone.

Usually around 7- 8 hours. I haven’t had unbroken sleep for about 3 years though. I often wake up in the early hours only for it to take me about an hour to fall back to sleep again (currently 6 months pregnant so that explains it!) Despite broken sleep, I rarely wake up feeling tired or groggy, so my body is obviously ok with it!

I couldn't sleep for 10 hours no matter how tired I was.
I'd be a bit pissed off if dp did this tbh. I'd think he was being lazy and trying to get out of doing childcare/ housework!
I really need 8 hours but usually only get 6 1/2 according to Fitbit
