Solution To Snoring Partner and Sleep Deprivation
Fighting in the night, sleeping apart, decreased sexual relations—these are just a few of the symptoms of a relationship being torn apart by snoring.
If you snore or sleep with a snorer, you know how tough it can be on your relationship. Here are some insights into why snoring is the number one medical cause of divorce in the U.S.
Sleep Deprivation Snoring
Snoring disrupts the sleep cycle of both snorers and their bed partners. When sleep is continually interrupted, one suffers from sleep deprivation, the effects of which could sour any relationship, including:
Sleep deprivation alone is enough to wreck a relationship, but snoring also creates the emotional issues covered below.
Sharing a bed for sleep promotes a greater feeling of intimacy between couples. But per statistics, however, an estimated four out of ten women whose partners snore move to another room to sleep. When you are separated from your partner during sleep, the special bond of intimacy between you is weakened.
Guilt and Resentment
People don’t snore on purpose. Nonetheless, their bedpartners, suffering from chronically interrupted sleep, often develop feelings of resentment toward them. In turn, snorers may feel guilty about the trouble they’re causing their loved one. The result is an ongoing vicious cycle that muddies the feelings of love between couples.
Why Do People Snore?
Snoring is caused by a partial obstruction in the passageway between one’s throat and nose or mouth during sleep. During sleep, the throat muscles relax and narrow this passageway. When air travels over the partial obstruction, the soft tissues vibrate and the harsh sounds of snoring occur.
Snoring is also a common indicator of sleep apnea, a serious medical condition in which one stops breathing for a brief time during sleep. If you snore, see your doctor arrange a sleep apnea test.
