A new study finds that the happiest couples are those who sleep close together.

Very close together, as in less than an inch apart.

According to Newser:

A survey of 1,000 people found that those who kept such close parameters had an 86% chance of reporting they were satisfied in their relationship, compared to 66% for those who slept 30 inches apart or more, the Telegraph reports.

Another predictor of relationship happiness: touch. While 94% of couples who made physical contact throughout the night reported a happy relationship, just 68% of couples who kept their distance did the same.

The survey also looked into how, exactly, the couples slept together: 42% back-to-back, 31% facing the same direction, and 4% face-to-face.

The happiest positions? Well, according to the Independent, 91% of people who reported sleeping with their backs touching also reported a happy relationship, as did 91% of people who reported facing the same direction while touching (so, “spooning” would qualify).

    My husband has to be touching me while we’re sleeping. When I was younger, it was annoying. Now, I wouldn’t have it any other way!
