    I think it caused my divorce...not really, but it probably contributed to it!

    I think indeed, snoring has been a factor in a divorce.
    However, I believe if you truly love the person. There are things you can do, and buy to aid with this very real problem.
    Although, it's only a problem for the listner, as the snorer is blissfuly unaware of the very importance of a good nights sleep.
    For the snorer is enjoying just that.

    should snoring break  up a relationship.. it should not,
    but a little consideration would surely help.
    i usually take my pillow and move to the other room. when my husband use to snore constantlly, like an old truck..

    No! If you truly love someone then this is just something about them that you accept, if you don't then it can become really rather irritating!!!
    Saying that I'm a very good sleeper so it's only on the odd bad night that I would notice.
    One good tip is to roll them onto their side if they are snoring bad, my Gran. does this with my Grandad too -it does work!

    It's such a strange thought and it's almost comical how snoring actually creates friction in a relationship but I know, it's not funny, it's awful. Try the breath right strips. Snoring is mostly a fixable problem.

    If snoring is enough to break up a relationship, I would say it wasn't much of one to begin with.
    An open line of communication and some experiments with different remedies would be my first course of action.

    It would if the snoring was taking place during sex.

    I experienced this issue, and it can be a pain. My boyfriend took it upon himself to find a way to position himself where he wasn't snoring. Before he did that, I was unsure as to if I could stay with him, it makes you mad when you cannot sleep. So my answer is yes. It can break up a relationship if measures aren't taken to silence the slumber thunder,

    WHAT. if this is enough to break up a marriage, you should never have been married in the first place.

    My wife just said yes. She has been telling me that she is gonna make me sleep in another room and I think that I should sometimes because she nudges me all night and keeps me up just as much as my snoring keeps her up. But I don't think she'll leave me because of it. At least I hope not.....

    I think that if you really love a person you should be able to find a way to ignore/ get used to the snoring. If snoring breaks up a relationship then clearly they never really had a strong relationship.

    Absolutely.  When you're sleep deprived and all you can can hear is someone else sleeping peacefully for hours on end while you lay quietly trying not to wake them . . . you could grow to hate a person.

    You know what, I snore! Me and my boyfriend don't make a fuss about it. We both snore so we totally understand what it's like to sleep in the same bed with each other. I don't think that what one does in his or her sleep should matter when it comes to the relationship.

    If the relationship is that fragile, that snoring would end it, then it's probably better off that way... LOL

    Snoring certainly can break up a relationship, but it shouldn't if a couple makes every effort to work it out.   Serious snorers and those with sleep apnea ruin a partner's sleep. Most advertised cures help only slightly, if at all for this group. CPAP machines are not well tolerated by a lot of people who say they are claustrophobic. Suggestions such as sewing a tennis ball in the back of pajamas to prevent back sleeping, weight loss, and not drinking alcoholic drinks around bedtime
    are helpful hints for moderate snorers. Seperate bedrooms combined with wearing earplugs is the only solution for others.  Open communication, respect, and loving affection are key to saving these relationships. Otherwise, the resentment can drive them apart.

    One really good quick fix is wearing earplugs! I know how irritating snoring is, but I just never have the heart to kick the person out of the room because of it. smile

    That's just crazy-Divorce??Although My husband drives me crazy with his snoring.over the last 20 years-He would snore so loud I couldn't fall asleep-I did the whole respectful thing -(Covering his head with a pillow or waking him) lol-just kidding -moving to the other end of the house- but the house was so quiet-I could still hear him snore- He would fall asleep sitting in the dr's office-for 2 seconds-and I would move away from him-lol-cause he would snore loudly (embarassing) in public. Finally he went and had a sleep study done-quick and simple-and turns out he has Sleep Apena- Now he has a little quiet machine that silents that snoring and he sleeps better-feels more refreshed in the morning**and I have to say**I also feel better in the morning. Those breathe right strips did nothing for him.
    Earplugs don't work for all -not when the snoring is like a freight train rolling past your bedroom window--
    Divorce? That is just Crazy!

    In most cases snoring doesn't cause relationship break ups. You just have to get use to sleeping in separate beds. I think?

    Snoring should or should not break up a relationship becuase its just a characteristic about yourself that your man should learn to deal with . If he cant handle your for who you are then mabye he isint the one . snoring is just something that your born with .

    I have known some people with this bad, bad snoring problem that are still married because they LOVE each other...and I know a couple that ended a marriage before it ever started because of snoring.
    I personally would not leave my love for this reason because they obviously have a medical condition that needs to be addressed the same way I wouldnt leave my love for any other medical condition.
    However my final answer would have to be YES....snoring can break up a relationship if it's not true love but I don't believe that it SHOULD be a reason.

    No No No, Snoring should not break up a relationship. it only happen when one is unconscious ( thats sleeping) it is not deliberate so one should try and cope with it.

    Snoring should deffinatly not break up a relationship. As snoring is caused by the muscles in the back of the throat and base of the tongue relaxing and then vibrating due to terbulance caused by breathing.

    its like saying your relationship broke down because your partner relaxed and breathed whilst they slept

    Lol. If snoring were a key reason for relationships not working out, the divorce rate would be ten times what is!  No...I believe that, if a relationship is truly based on love, the couple will learn to work around such things as snoring.  By the way...Everybody snores.

    hi

    I feel snoring cant be a reason for breaking up a relationship. It can be a cause that may or may not lead to a conflict. But such a silly reason cannot be considered good enough to break a valued relationship.

    I know some people that have broken up due to snoring being out of control.

    I myself, am a loud snorer. I've snored since I was a little kid actually, and would be embarrassed to do any late night activities with my friends (like spend the night) because how loud my snoring was. My true friends always invited me over for a sleep over!

    My boyfriend tells me all the time that my snoring is very loud. He says that he'll push me to make me stop snoring for a little bit and sometimes even tickles my back. He says it helps when it gets louder. The funny thing though, is that he says he's unable to sleep now when I'm not there with him. I guess my snoring has become a comfortable thing for him rather than totally annoying.
