When snoring threatens to ruin your marriage

It is one of life’s eternal questions; how to stop snoring? Albeit generally seen as a laughable, somewhat comic affliction, the spouses and sleeping partners of individuals who snore heavily seem less than amused. It is no wonder then that snoring cures sell like hotcakes the world over.

Is your marriage suffering because you or your partner snore and keep the other awake at night? Sleep deprivation is no laughing matter and when constant fatigue is coupled with resentment for the snorer it can lead to serious marital problems than can easily spill over into other areas of the relationship and corrode the foundation thereof. While your partner lies fast asleep and blissfully unaware of the racket they are causing, you are rolling around, mulling over snoring solutions and generally having a miserable time of it. One can understand why more and more couples are choosing to sleep apart in order to save their marriages and relationships.

Did you know that the sharing of the marital bed is a relatively modern convention? Well, it is. Married couples infrequently slept in the same bed up until the advent of the Industrial Revolution during the 1800s. During this time, more and more farming families were moving to the city to get their slice of the steam power pie and as a consequence living space in cities came at a premium. Large families had to squeeze into tiny living quarters and this is ultimately how it came about that married couples began to sleep in the same bed. Up until this point most couples slept apart without batting an eyelid.

Think about it this way – if you have tried every possible snoring solution and you or your partner is still keeping the other one awake at night, is it really worth it to keep sleeping in the same bed purely for the sake of sticking to convention? Of course not. Discuss the matter privately and see if you can find a golden mean that will allow both parties to sleep peacefully until you find the snoring cure that works.
