How Your Partner’s Snoring Can Be Solved

Don’t let snoring destroy your relationship when everything about your partner is all you ever dreamed of in someone. Work together to put your snoring spouse or partner to bed. Use this moment to strengthen your bond and connection. Take comfort in knowing you’re not alone. Be patient and sensitive; your partner is likely feeling vulnerable and embarrassed.


Discuss with your partner how the snoring is straining the relationship before you can’t take it any longer and ship your partner to the guest bedroom or the couch. Don’t let snoring make you lose your sexual intimacy. Avoid feeling lonely and isolated at night because your partner is sleeping in the next room.

The time to act is now.

Here are 3 things you can do about your partner’s snoring problem:

  1. Choose the right time to talk to each other: avoid discussing your partner’s snoring in the middle of the night or in the early morning when you’re tired and moody from not sleeping the night before.
  2. Remember it’s not intentional: although you may feel like a victim, always remember your snoring spouse is not keeping you awake at night intentionally.
  3. The time to act is now: encourage your partner to seek professional help to stop the snoring. Suggest visiting a sleep center to help determine the cause for the snoring. Don’t combat your partner’s snoring alone with the use of ear plugs or going to sleep earlier. Work together to stop the snoring. And if you’re the one doing the snoring don’t minimize your partner’s complaints.

If either you or your partner’s snoring is affecting your relationship, don’t ignore it, cure it today! Visit a sleep center to get a diagnosis through a sleep study, or look for anti snoring devices and sleep aids to help you and your partner both sleep a little easier every night
