Does it matter if you can't sleep together? Snoring can have bad effect on married couples. How can one have a peaceful sleep when the person lying next to you has kept you up all night sounding like a broken-down tractor engine trying to rev up.

hi zandi unfortunately i snore. lol yap i don't like it but i can't do anything about it. i tried to ask if there's some kind of medicine for that but didn't find any. luckily, i have a very understanding husband who loves me no matter how noisy i am when i sleep. it does not bother him that i snore. during the first few months of our marriage i would asked him how worst it was and he would kid saying it sounded like an angry bee. well i'm guessing it's worst than that. now 6 years of marriage my husband is telling me that when i don't snore he can't sleep anymore. i hope my husband won't get tired of listening to me =:)

I guess your husband has grown out of it and just accept it as some kind of melody in the still night.

My parents slept apart for at least 20 years because of the same situation. It wasn't all the time, but more so in the summer heat. LOL, the problem then became mine, because the extra room was right next to mine.... I think it depends on the couple and what they expect whether this is a problem.

At least your parents have compromised and accepted sleeping apart. So whats your remedy, as it has become your problem now. Try putting cotton bud in your ears this might help lol.

I think it's better for a couple to sleep together. As sometimes you can hug each other while sleeping. Also each other can cover the sheet if one doesn't have it. At the beginning I also found my husband's snore bothered my sleeping. He said when he was noisy, then I could wake him up. I have never done so. Later I get used to it. Today without his snore, I can't fall asleep:)

Is snoring a disease? I think most people snore when they are tired or those overweight. Thank you for responding.

I cant sleep without my spouse on my chest or arms. Very rarely she snores, that too mildly. During my childhood I used to get perturbed by the snoring of my drunken maternal uncle.
