The Doctors meet Jamie and Jeff, a happy and in love couple who share the secret to their great marriage – a sleep divorce! Jamie and Jeff sleep in separate bedrooms. Jeff is a snorer and Jamie is a light sleeper. Jamie shares that she was horrified the first night she spent with Jeff and after hearing his snoring thought, “I don’t know if I can do this, it might be a deal breaker.” Jeff says that a tired Jamie is “the devil.”
When Jamie got pregnant with their daughter Jeff went to a doctor to try and cure his snoring. He was diagnosed with sleep apnea but after one try, Jeff refuses to use the CPAP machine. Jeff quit smoking and got surgery on his nose, but the problem persisted.
Jeff and Jamie share that while Jamie was recovering from giving birth they started doing a military-like sleep arrangement where they took a shift every 5 hours. They highly recommend it to new parents.
OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry asks how this affects their intimacy and Jeff says they are actually more conscious about it. Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon speaks positively of the arrangement saying “In a way, this arrangement opens up other times, not just night time, when you’re getting intimate.” Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra adds, "If you’re fatigued and annoyed, you’re not getting intimate anyway!"
Dr. Mike Varshavski does take problem with Jeff not actually treating his sleep apnea. He shares that there is hope for the future for new, smaller, CPAP machines to come to market and urges Jeff to keep looking into other options.
The Doctors asked their social media followers if they sleep in separate beds from their significant other/spouse. 18% said they do, while 82% said they do not. Maybe this happy couple can change some minds.
