Lisa99 - has he tried using a headlamp for reading or have you considered an eye mask to block out the light?


DH likes to fall asleep watching TV in bed. I will use ear plugs and an eye mask if the TV irritates me. It really helps.

We're not even in the same room, but the living room and bedroom are side by side. I'm a much later bird than she is. When she goes to bed she covers her eyes, but if I want to watch TV I use the wireless headphones. $79 is a lot cheaper than a divorce.

Seems to me the one doing the annoying habits should be the one to fix them. The other person is just trying to sleep, and wearing things and trying to adjust your sleeping habits is a lot harder than adjusting your awake habits. Heck, if it was me keeping her awake I'd choose to be the one sleeping in the other room. Just seems equitable to me.
