- To our GMA cover story. - Yeah. Getting a good night's sleep can be a distant dream sometimes, but now some couples are sleeping in separate bedrooms. An influencer on TikTok taking up the debate. But is it the secret to a happy relationship? We'll take a look. - Little story time on why my husband and I sleep in different rooms. HOST: Sleep is sacred. And when sleeping with her husband Jake wasn't cutting it anymore-- - I like silence and he likes white noise machine. HOST: TikTok influencer, Taylor Paul, kicked him out-- - This is my room. HOST: --to the bedroom next door. - Lots of space here, as you can see. - Before we made the change, it was kind of hard for us to get sleep. - I like it really, really cold and she likes it really warm and stuffy, and I just cannot sleep. The other reason is that I do do a lot of sleepwalking and sleep talking. So it was a good solution for both of us. HOST: While there's no hard data, it's been estimated that one in four couples sleep separately. - I think it's still a little taboo to talk about sleeping in separate rooms or in separate beds, because we have this idea that if couples are not sharing a bedroom that there must be something terribly wrong with their relationship. HOST: When Taylor posted about it on TikTok-- - It blew up. And it was shocking, because I didn't think it was like something, I guess, interesting or that intriguing, but it has been. But I also think it might be a taboo conversation. Because then people, I think, go straight to like, oh, how's your marriage? - I think it's great that this couple is talking about their alternative bedroom situation, because it opens the door for other couples who might need to have separate bedrooms, or those that already do, to kind of come out of the shadows. HOST: The couple, who has two children, say their marriage is great and that trading in traditional relationship dynamics for better sleep has been worth it. - Sleep deprivation also can have a negative effect on relationships and just life in general. And so we found that we were really well rested. And we also just prioritized, like, our time together. - So there you have it. - Yeah, well we've-- my wife and I have been doing this for years with our crazy schedules and all this stuff. But now we've got the in-laws in town, so now-- - Oh. - --we're stuck in the same room. We still love each other. [LAUGHTER] - Stuck In the same-- - My husband sleeps through everything, so he wouldn't wake up even with the alarm going off.
