June 11, 2013 8:41:26 AM PDT
It's a problem that millions of American couples face but do not talk about in public. Millions of Americans say they have developed issues in their relationships because of the struggle over sleeping next to each other.

According to recent reports, a quarter of married couples say they sleep in separate beds just to get a good night sleep.

Even ABC'S senior medical contributor, Dr. Jennifer Ashton, has reported having sleeping problems in her marriage, and underwent testing with her husband.

They underwent tests measuring brain activity while they slept, but the results showed that Dr. Ashton didn't sleep much better when she left the bedroom than if she stayed and her husband snored. Her husband Rob, on the other hand, got an extra twenty minutes of deep sleep with his wife by his side.

So, vote in our poll.... Are you part of a couple, but sleeping separately?
