SWEET DREAMS TEXT
No Sweet Dreams for Couple at Bedtime
DEAR DR. ELLIS:
I’m married. Every night my husband «tells» me when it’s time for us to retire for the night.
This can be anytime from 9:30 to 11:30 p.m.
If I tell him that I’m ready for bed he gets upset. If he’s ready to get into bed, and I want to
finish a book I’m reading, he gets upset.
According to him, married men and women should go to bed «together,» period! It is always on
his timetable. Needless to say, we have gone to bed angry many times.
How do we figure it out without getting angry and resenting each other?
