Bedtime routine is very important, not only for good sleep but also for a good relationship. And no, it is not only about sex. As a matter of fact, how you handle bedtime is symbolic to your relationship. Staying disconnected with your partner at bedtime can be deterimental to your marriage and before you even realize it, you start living separate lives, despite being under the same roof.
When you are managing stresses of your daily life, you often overlook some of the simple yet important rules of life – going to bed at the same time as your partner.

Facebook, Twitter and Instagram seem to be draining out all the excitement from our personal relationships. And if this was not enough, TV eats up into the remaining time.

Feel his/her presence consciously and avoid all the unnecessary noice.
