A new study conducted as part of the Edinburgh International Science Festival has claimed that the distance between couples as they sleep has a direct impact on their relationship's health.
It revealed that 86% of partners who snoozed less than an inch apart were more content with their relationship compared with 66% of those separated more than 30 inches apart.
According to the survey looking at responses from 1,000 people, touching was also really important, with couples reporting being happier than those who had a "no touching rule" while sleeping.
It even delved into the most popular positions, with almost half of dreamers lying back to back, and nearly a third facing the same way, leaving 4% facing one another.
Things have got a lot more complex since the simple battle of who sleeps closest to the door or who gets a better view of the TV.
Sleeping the right way and in the right spot just got way more crucial...
