Snoring facts and cures for you


Deal with a Snoring Spouse

Deal with a Snoring Spouse

I did not sleep a wink last night, my husband snored the whole night through.” Does this sound familiar? How do you deal with a snoring spouse? Snoring is definitely a nuisance and can of course be a source of frustration between couples when one person snores on a regular or repeated basis.

Deal with a Snoring SpouseI have been married for 14 years, and have discovered that I snored for about 10 of those 14 years. So I do know a little about snoring creating unnecessary friction in a marriage. So this is my take on this sensitive matter: If you are the one snoring, firstly admit that you DO snore and then find a cure or market product that can work for you. If you are the other non snoring party, please accept that he or she is not doing it on purpose but DO need your support to cure the snoring.

There are natural ways to stop snoring that you could try, this includes life style changes. If you are a heavy snorer, are always sleepy during the day and/or show symptoms of sleep apnea, consult your medical practitioner immediately.

If your partner snores and you are here because you need help, you should feel comforted by the fact that you are not alone, and that there are remedies and products that can help, and which have helped other people in your similar position. Every person and every situation is of course different from the next, so I would not be so arrogant to say that I have all the answers. I can only say what work for my marriage, and what has worked for my snoring problems. If you want you can also read, How to stop snoring, for a little added information.


Communication and Respect

The one matter that I do want to emphasize though is communication between partners. I found a great article dealing with Communication between Couples, which is worth a read.

The one thing I am always conscience about as a man who snores or snored (my snoring is controlled), is how my snoring affects my wife. In the beginning years of our marriage, I will admit, I did not want to believe that I snored, it did take some convincing. Discussion

When I finally took responsibility and did something about it, it was like a revelation. I realized I could not put my wife through sleepless nights, I felt bad about it. There were indeed some night that I would rather sleep on the couch because I was worried I would snore that night, this happened when I was a bit sick with a stuffy nose.

That is the key I believe, if you can be conscience about what you do, then you are committed to cure or control your snoring. Always consider your partner, and save your relationship. Be like the cats!



It really saddens me deeply when I hear of so many marital problems because of snoring, and that, when there are so many remedies and products on the market today. Now, I will admit, I don’t know every situation, so I can not judge.

  1. I stop breathing tgouhh the night. I see every hour of the night, sometime 2 or 3 times makes for a long nigh. I have gotten used to feeling like a zombie everyday while taking care of my children. I have no insurance so can not see a doc. You seem to know a lot about this and would like to know if there is anything I can do at home to help. Like I said, I am not over weight, I do have a deviated septum if that matters at all!

    • Hi Raul
      Your deviated septum could more than likely be the cause of your snoring. Although seeing a doctor is always recommended for nasal abnormalities, I also fully understand that it may not be possible to see a doctor at present. Luckily there are some things you can try that might help. I wrote an article called, How to stop snoring, which I suggest you read because I explain what you can do when faced with nasal problems. In short; it is always suggested to use a nasal clip or nasal strip (available on this site) to open the nasal passages to help you to breath better, and they have also been clinically proven to stop snoring. Nasal sprays and decongestants can also help.

      The fact that you stop breathing at night is a concern, and I suggest you take it seriously. These products can help, but if it does not help, you really need to get a medical checkup, because your symptoms could point to something serious like sleep apnea.
      Hope this small bit of information help, please feel free to send me an email if you need more detailed information, I am always here to help.

      Kind Regards,
