The sleep-deprived pair decided to go their separate ways every night because Sienna was struggling to nod off in the same bed due to her husband’s snoring.
“Why sleep in separate rooms? The reason we sleep in separate rooms is because I snore heavily,” George said in a video.
“And literally, Sienna is like (screaming), ‘Oh my god, can you stop, please just get up, I’m so done. That’s it, leave.’
“So we thought, ‘You know what? We’ve got five bedrooms, we might as well utilise them.’ So she sleeps in one, I sleep in another one. Everyone is happy. We get a good night’s sleep.”

The dad insisted the couple’s unconventional sleeping arrangement has made their marriage stronger than ever.
“We have a healthy relationship, we love each other very much,” George explained.
‘Better for our marriage’
“But yes, basically we sleep in separate rooms because it’s better for our marriage, it’s better for everyone to get a good night’s sleep.
“Let’s be honest, no one wants to get woken up every 10 seconds by me snoring or by her waking me up saying, ‘Get up’. You know what I mean? There’s no need, there’s no need.
“Just sleep in separate bedrooms, and it’ll be a healthy marriage for everyone.”

George addressed the couple’s sleeping arrangement a day after Sienna casually mentioned in an unrelated family holiday video they were sleeping apart — without going into any details.
“I mean, it is what it is,” he said.
“A lot of people do it and a lot of people have a happy marriage, forever and ever.
“I’ve already mentioned this many times before, it doesn’t mean everything. You know, we still have sensual times, we still have the naughty naughty … We have the fun times.
“Don’t get too emotional trolls, I know, it’s true … Get over it.”
‘Secret to our marriage’
The video has been viewed more than 430,000 times — with many sharing their own experiences with sleeping apart from their spouses in separate bedrooms.
“People who don’t sleep in separate rooms do not know what they are missing,” one said.

Another revealed: “My husband and I both sleep in separate rooms too because of the same reason. And we are happy.”
One shared: “My grandparents were married almost 70 years and never slept in the same bed, had seven kids. My grandad used to say, it’s not the sleeping that counts, it’s the awake visits.”
Another added: “My husband and I have been married 27 years. I can’t stand the snoring. We sleep apart.”
One said: “My grandparents slept in separate rooms because my grandad snored like a freight train — doesn’t mean they didn’t love each other.”
‘Works for us’
While another shared: “I sleep in a separate room to my husband. Works for us. He snores heavily too. Secret to our marriage.”
Meanwhile another detailed: “My husband and I been together for 14 years married for 10, we don’t even live in the same house — we are on the same property. We have 2.5 acres of land.
“It’s nice, he has a tiny house where him and two of our dogs sleep and I sleep in the main house but we spend all our time together, we just sleep separately. We do nap in each other’s beds sometimes depending on where we are hanging out. It works for us.”
