You’ve probably tried to de-code the meaning of what your partner does while he or she is awake, but did you know that how the two of you sleep can provide some insight into your relationship? Now scientists believe that even during sleep, “body language” can reveal how happy a couple is.

As reported by Science Daily, a study at the University of Hertfordshire led by Professor Richard Wiseman revealed that how close couples sleep to one another indicates the state of their relationship. The study involved a survey of 1000 participants who were asked to describe their preferred sleeping position, and also to rate the quality of their relationship.

Professor Wiseman commented:

“One of the most important differences involved touching, with 94% of couples who spent the night in contact with one another happy with their relationship, compared to just 68% of those that didn’t touch.”

Interesting stuff, right?
