Is snoring an issue in your relationship?

I am curious, do you or your partner snore, and if so does it cause a problem for either of you in the sleeping department?

It's funny, all my life growing up and living in a small house, both my parents snored and it drove me UP THE WALL! Some nights it would literally drive me to tears. Now, all these years later, I'm with a man who also snores. And I find it oddly comforting. Sometimes it will actually make me laugh out loud, and other times I just smile to myself and fall asleep.

We both snore on rare occasions - we're both OK with being roused, then we're able to change positions and solve the problem.

My former partner snored like a freight train; we compromised by having me always fall asleep first--if she went to bed first, I awakened her when I was ready for bed and kept made her stay up til I fell asleep

I've never had a partner that snored. Although I am a -light sleeper-. I've shared rooms with people who were snorers and I cannot sleep whatsoever. I would !!!!definitely!!!! break it off with someone who snored, no question about it. Or we would have to get separate rooms if we lived together.

My partner snores, but only occasionally. I usually disrupt him a little and he rolls over and stops.

I do the same!
He only snores when he is really tired but I just give him a nudge and he rolls over.

I don't snore in my sleep, but I mumble or talk in my sleep. It never really bugged my ex.

My Man can wake the dead when he snores. He does that thing where he stops breathing. Scary. He refuses to get help for it (sleep apnea can lead to heart attacks, but he claims he doesn't do it. He's asleep, how does he know? I even took a video of him doing it, and he won't budge. *sigh*

It's sometimes more than just a nuisance. It can be medically dangerous.

Older men are really difficult to deal with sometimes.

We only snore when we're sick. Thank god! Our room mate on the other hand....oh man. We've been very tempted om many many an occasion to put him out on the front lawn while he sleeps lol

My girlfriend has a sort of girly snore. It's not loud enough to bother me, it's just kinda cute.

Neither of us snore. On occasion when I am semi awake, if I breath just right, I can snore a little bit. But I can alter my breathing and stop it.

My husband snores really softly. Most women would probably not be bothered by it but I'm a speshul snowflake sleeper. It doesn't work to nudge him awake or make him roll over. He'll be asleep again in seconds before I have the slightest chance to fall asleep myself. We sleep in separate rooms now.

My boy and I sleep in separate rooms, partly because his snoring would wake me / keep me awake when we used to sleep together. It still sometimes bothers me when we share a bed, but that's usually just on weekends, so it's not as bad as before.

Snoring isn't an issue but I apparently grind my teeth really horribly and it drives my boyfriend crazy. I have a nightguard I'm supposed to wear but I don't like it all the time, so it's a bit of an issue.

LOL! That is what I do. I dont care once I am asleep. It will not wake me, but if i am trying to fall asleep it will drive me bonkers.

I think my boyfriend only snores when he's in my bed cause it's too small. It gets annoying.

I could not have put it better if I tried. Hated snoring before, but my man's snoring just makes me feel loved.

My husband snores lightly only when he is really really tired due to a serious lack of sleep and Im told I snore lightly on nights that I have a little too much to drink lol. embarrassing. 99% of the time tho, neither of us do- thank god!

Sometimes we both snore lightly, but it's usually not a problem for either of us.

Everyone snores on occasion. Luckily, neither of us does it often enough or loud enough for it to be bothersome.

It embarrasses me something awful, but it really does make her laugh.

I found out a few days ago that my new boyfriend snores. I fell asleep with my head on his chest and almost had a heart attack when he started snoring.

My husband snores. At first it bothered me since I'm such a light sleeper. Then he joined the military and was gone for long periods of time. I found that I couldn't sleep without the sound of his snores I ended up getting a dog while he was gone and found that she also snores! So she helps me sleep when he isn't home.

You can hear my husband snore when you are outside in the driveway. He sounds like a freight train. He has sleep apnea, but can not sleep at all with the machine they gave him. Go Figure! The snoring is getting better with the new mattress though.

My husband snores sometimes. It used to keep me up sometimes, but now I'm totally used to it.

The CPAP is really hard to get used to. There are special pillows for your head, which make using the machine easier, and the CPAP is a lifesaver, but it can take about 10 days or so to get used to it.

I made the mistake of showing one to My Man and now he won't get help for his apnea. *sigh*
