The Battle of Bedtimes: Exploring Couples with Different Sleep Habits 

Sleep “experts” have long debated whether being an early bird or a night owl helps make a person more successful or productive throughout the day, and even if the saying suggests fortune favors the early risers, that opinion may not hold up.
