London: A new research has found that the average married adult loses around 730 hours sleep a year because of their partner’s snoring and fidgeting.

According to a study, women are more likely to be kept awake by snoring while the biggest bugbear for men is fidgeting, reports a daily.

Of 3,000 people polled, 40 per cent complained that their partner hogged the bed while 30 per cent said they fought over the duvet.

The study also found that 47 per cent of people fear their sex life would go downhill if they didn’t share a bed with their partner.

The research was conducted for pudding makers Lovetub.

“Sharing a bed isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. But it seems we’ll put up with lost sleep out of fear that we’ll miss out on those intimate moments,” a spokeswoman said.
