I was actually surprised by this survey. I didn't realize that so many couples in America sleep separately. According to Quora, "This may be due to a variety of reasons such as snoring, different sleep schedules, or physical discomfort. In fact, a survey conducted by the National Sleep Foundation found that 25% of couples sleep in separate beds or rooms." A new survey out, by eachnight,  has ranked sleep habits (Couples Sleeping Together) in each state.

So let's look at some of the new data that has been released when it comes to couples' sleeping habits in America. The good news for New Jersey is that we are NOT the worst state when it comes to couples sleeping together, but we are in the Top 10. New York is ranked as the state with the worst sleeping habits for couples. "New York takes the lead as the state where couples have the most difficulty sharing a bed at 563 searches per 100k – 14% higher than the US average." New Jersey was ranked 8th in America "New Jersey residents are plagued with sleepless nights the eighth most, with 517.3 average monthly searches per 100k residents."
