We all know we need more sleep. I normally get around six to seven hours of sleep. New research shows that I really need to keep that around seven hours or more a night for a happy marriage?

I have a happy marriage, so maybe getting close to seven hours give or take is accurate? I know sleep affects our all around health but can it really play a part in relationships too?

According to Wydailynews:

Psychologists have found that having seven or eight hours sleep a night means partners are less likely to focus on the negative aspects of their relationship and more inclined to think about the bigger picture.

Researchers at Florida State University say sleep also helps to restore function in the prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain that manages self control, which is thought to improve our perception of relationships.
