Who falls asleep first? You or your spouse/so?

I can't fall asleep until I know everyone else in the house is asleep and settled. It started when we had kids. LOL

  • My husband usually falls asleep before me which sucks because he snores and it takes me longer to fall asleep and sometimes I go to the couch. LOL

  • I fall asleep first. He purposefully waits for me to go to sleep before he does, he knows I fall asleep much faster when he's awake - not sure why.

  • OMG, He falls asleep the minute his head hits the pillow. Wish I could do that. He hears nothing that goes on, not even a violent rain storm. It's like he leaves his body when he sleeps.

  • He falls asleep almost instantly. It's so annoying because half the time I lay there for a good 30 minutes before I fall asleep.

  • We always go to bed at the same time yet DH always falls asleep before me. My mind wanders and he knows how to shut his off, which is a talent I do not have!

  • My husband falls asleep in like 3 minutes. Then when I roll over he will say "Are you ok?? or "i love you" and if I answer (thinking surely he isn't asleep) he says something totally off the wall and I know he is asleep lol
