The team found that couples synchronize their sleep patterns when sleeping together.
This synchronization, which is not linked to the fact that partners disturb each other during the night, is positively associated with relationship depth. In order words, the higher participants rated the significance of their relationship to their life, the stronger the synchronization with their partner. Interestingly, researchers found an increased limb movement in couples who share the bed. However, these movements do not disrupt sleep architecture, which remains unaltered.

"One could say that while your body is a bit unrulier when sleeping with somebody, your brain is not," said Drews. Although results are promising, some questions remain to be answered. "The first thing that is important to be assessed in the future is whether the partner-effects we found (promoted REM sleep during co-sleep) are also present in a more diverse sample (elderly, or if one partner suffers from a disease)," the authors wrote in the paper published in the open-access journal Frontiers. The research furthers our understanding of sleep in couples and its potential implication for mental health, they added.
