Seperate rooms (couples)

I suggested to my partner that we could have seperate rooms when we live together. I mean I snore extremely loudly… I asked him to record the sound, it was awful… I have even woke myself up from how bad it gets… and he has trouble sleeping as it is. I don’t feel we have to suffer its pointless. I don’t want to wear anything on my nose to prevent it…

We have separate bedrooms and don’t wake each other up. Its so much better as we have different resttimes.

I’ve bought things that go on your nose to stop snoring. They help my husband to make his snoring quieter, but they don’t help my snoring. I don’t snore every night, but when I do it’s loud and he can’t sleep. My husband snored really loud too until we got him this little clip. Much better now.

I don’t know how common it is but it doesn’t seem weird. What you do in your own house is your business and your choice. My own sister told me that her and her husband slept in different rooms. You are always going to have people who think it’s weird or funny but you’re an adult and it’s an adult decision and if it’s right for you than who cares what anyone else thinks?

There are sleep clinics, I don’t know if they “cure” snoring.

When I was around 24 I was living in mental health semi-independent living. Basically, an agency bought 4 houses in the same general area and stuck anywhere from two to four clients inside and we lived pretty much on our own except for weekly meetings with an assigned counselor. I had to share a room most of the time. In this particular house I shared a room with a guy who we both worked at the same placed. He snored: loudly. In fact I’ve never lived with anyone who snored so loud. He would go to bed at 10:00 pm and I usually stayed up until 11:00 pm but I would go in the room and fall asleep for maybe 10 or 15 minutes and he would start snoring. It would wake me up and be impossible to sleep through so I resigned myself to sleeping on the couch in the living room every night. And I could still hear him down the hall snoring!

I think he actually went to a sleep clinic but it didn’t help.

My Father snores loudly!

If I love the person, I don’t mind their snoring and I can sleep through it. If I don’t love them, I hate it and it keeps me up.

It’s the latest trend called a “sleep divorce.” I sleep in a different room from my partner too.

It’s a good thing you don’t share a room.

I can relate to it. My husband snores at night and I have no problem sleeping with this sound. In fact, the sound of my husband’s snoring helped me falling asleep.

I didn’t live with my ex. But sometimes I would sleep over and hit the couch cause I couldn’t stand it.

I sleep in same bed as my husband. When we visited my mom and had two twin single beds he insisted I squeeze in one bed with him lol! :laughing:

He snores also and I don’t mind. I find it soothing. He says I snore too, so the score is even :laughing:

It doesn’t seem too bad. I don’t see why you would feel any less close.

I’ve noticed that guys snore a lot louder when they are in the mental hospital. I’ve been woken up myself because I was snoring too loud.

Mr. Star snores like a chainsaw, and I can’t sleep without that noise anymore. It took a lot of getting used to, though.

I don’t do homeopathic stuff,but I worked at GNC and tried this stuff called SnoreStop once. I was desperate because I snore really obnoxiously. My roommates made fun of me a lot.

It comes in a spray and tablets. I used the tablets. Shockingly, it worked, because my roommates said I stopped snoring and asked what I was doing differently. Even after stopping the tablets I didn’t snore for a while.

Need to get some again. My husband and kids say I sound like some big dude is in bed.

My boyfriend’s moms bf is the LOUDEST SNORER EVER!!! I have NO IDEA how she gets any sleep when he stays over. My bf snores too but its quiet and if he rolls on his side he stops so i usually just nudge him and tell him to roll over and he does.

You’d be surprised what people will put up with for love.
