Sharing the Covers: Every Couple's Guide to Better Sleep” by behavioral sleep specialist and clinical psychologist Wendy Troxel dives into the issues that might come up for couples sleeping together, from snoring to sleep disorders, and how partners can manage these issues - including how to ask for a “sleep divorce.”
