Sleeping with your partner is good for your health6/5/2012
For all that we put up with when sleeping with someone (in this instance, we mean literally) -- the snoring, the tossing and turning, the blanket hogging -- it turns out the very act has its own benefit: You're likely to live longer and be in better health. New research shows that people in long-term, stable relationships tend to sleep better than singles, which is important for good health. One reason might be that the safety and security of shared sleep with a partner may lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol, and boost oxytocin (the "love" hormone), which eases anxiety. To that end, researchers recommend finding compromises if partners have different sleep patterns.
