- Bebeto, is it true that you haven't slept well since you got married?
- No, I have slept well since I got married. I slept well on Monday last week.
Your above sentences make sense, but would sound better in the present perfect continuous.
Whenever the verb refers to a single act whose time of occurrence is expressed in the sentence or implied, you should use the simple past.
Ex: The boy broke the window this morning.
As opposed to: The boy has just broken the window.
