Snorers, sleep talkers, and blanket hogs take notice – Americans are ready to rethink that ground zero of conjugal life: the shared bed.

Nearly half of Americans (48%) agree with actor Cameron Diaz that we should normalize separate bedrooms for married couples, according to a Wakefield Research survey of 2,000 Americans 18 years and older.

The actor floated the idea of distinct sleeping quarters on the Lipstick On the Rim podcast in December.

Diaz is far from being an outlier, in fact the majority of married women (52%) agree we should normalize separate bedrooms, compared to 40% of married men.

The January 2024 survey showed that younger Americans are more open to the idea of sleeping alone, with Gen Z (54%) and Millennials (55%) more likely to agree than Gen X (46%) and Boomers (43%).
