emerging literature provides evidence for the association between romantic
relationship quality and sleep, an important factor in health and well-being.
However, we still know very little about the specific relationship processes
that affect sleep behavior. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine
how self-disclosure and significant relational process linked to relationship,
relationship satisfaction, and health, is associated with sleep behavior.
Daily variation in self-disclosure predicted sleep outcomes for wives, but not
for husbands. On days when wives self-disclosed more to their spouses than
their average level, their subjective sleep quality and sleep efficiency that
night improved. Furthermore, daily self-disclosure buffered the effect of high
negative mood on sleep latency for wives, but not husbands. In contrast, higher
average levels of self-disclosure predicted less waking during the night for
husbands, but not for wives.
association between self-disclosure and sleep is one mechanism by which daily
relationship functioning may influence health and well-being. Gender may play a
role in how self-disclosure is associated with sleep.

sexual relationship. They must also respond to each other'ssleep patterns, food preferences,
