Sleeping in on weekends?

Bignuf Bignuf
As I get older I find I REALLY want to sleep in on weekends. When I was younger I was "up at the crack of dawn" ready to take on the day.

If one of you is younger and one is older, does your "sleep in" style...or lack thereof, cause an issue? Does one want to "lounge in bed" and the other "not"?

I know this too can effect romance, if one partner is awake a bit later..wakes up "ready to have some fun" and when they turn over, the other partner is "long gone".

Your take?

My partner enjoys sleeping in where I am more of a morning person and get a lot done in the morning. If I wake her up with morning wood, however, she is generally very good about taking care of business, so to speak. We don't bother each other about our sleeping habits too much, they really aren't worth creating a fuss over unless there is a real disconnect for no reason at all.

I fear that sleep schedules may become an issue for my man and me, particularly on the weekends. He's an actor and writer, working right now with his production company on a new show, so he often works through the night with his co-writers and then sleeps during the day. I, on the other hand, naturally wake up no later than 7 am every morning (regardless of how much sleep I've had). It's non-issue during the work week because I come home from the office and we're both awake and ready to have fun. When I go down to his place for weekends (3 states away), it can get frustrating to be awake at 9am and wanting to go somewhere/do something. He says I'm allowed to wake him up, but I know he also has trouble sleeping and I don't want to be that evil person.

My best friend married the director of the same production company, and polar-opposite sleep schedules has been a big debate between them. She's a teacher and was home all summer, so their schedule was for her to wake up at 4am when he was coming home from the studio, spend a few hours together then, and then she got out of bed and let him sleep through the afternoon.

If I don't get back on a proper schedule, I think I'm gonna directly ask my guy to keep me on his schedule. He's always up early and in bed at a decent hour. Meanwhile, I'm up until 4am and either sleeping only 2-4 hours or sleeping through the entire day. During the school year, I enjoyed sleeping in on weekends, definitely.

I sleep in every day if I can, weekend or not. It's very common to find me in bed til noon on a weekend if I don't work that day

My husband is definitely a morning person where I'm not so much. If he goes to bed really late and it's dark and gloomy outside he'll sleep til about 9, but if anything makes noise anytime after 6 am he's up and awake. We try to compromise on the sleeping in. On days that he works that I don't he doesn't care how late I sleep in. On days that neither of us work I try to get him to sleep (or at least stay in bed) until at least 9 because I like knowing that he's still there while I'm sleeping.

I can't sleep past noon. I feel REALLY guilty about wasting my day like that.

I gotta be up between 8a-10:30a or it ruins my whole day.

She sleeps whenever, just like a kitteh. Seriously, I have to look for a tail sometimes!

Yeah, it can be an issue, but I think sleep is also really important, and can gear you up for the rest of the day/week, etc.

I didn't hear the alarm go off this morning when my guy went to work. I woke up an hour later in a shocked whats going on kind of state. During the week I wake up when he wakes up at 6:45 am for work. On weekends we usually sleep in till 9 or 10. Than wake up and proceed with our weekend.

We both like to sleep in a little on weekends. It usually depends on when we were able to get to bed.

He likes to sleep in on weekends, but I take those hours as a chance to get some "me" time in- which is REALLY important.
SO it's not always a bad thing.
Plus, he's rather well rested after he sleeps in, which means more energy.... ya know what I mean.

I find that since I was a teenager, I've wanted to sleep late. I've never just woken up at the crack of dawn from restfulness, even if I went to bed early.
my wife is more a of a morning person on the weekends. she's 25 years older than me. she doesn't generally need as much sleep as me.

I love sleeping in on my weekends. I may hardly sleep until noon but it's nice to sleep even a hour or two later then normal and then just lay around in bed for a little while.

My partner and I love sleeping in! I, however, like to be up by 11 most days. He can sleep until dinner time.

I'm older than my guy and he always want to get up early on the weekends but I like to sleep in. I let him get up and do what he wants and I get my sleep.

I've graduated into adulthood and even on weekends, I'm usually up by 9. I know that's not super early by a lot of people's standards, but seeing as how I'm up at 6 on weekdays, sleeping in til 9 is heavenly.
however, if we've been at a party and don't get home til 5am, I will happily sleep til 1 or 2.
it's all relative.
