Forget marriage counseling – get more sleep: Study shows how a lack of shut-eye can crush our relationships

Sleeping more than seven hours a night can help solve a couple’s marriage problems, experts say. 

Researchers analyzed couples response to stressful situations and compared it to the number of hours of sleep they got the night before.  

Couples who had less than seven hours of sleep were more likely to start a fight with their significant other and would have higher levels of an inflammatory response in their blood. 

These inflammatory responses have also been linked to heart disease, arthritis and other chronic illnesses. 

Experts recommend for couples to get more sleep if they are having marriage or health problems to improve their well-being.
