We often raise an eyebrow about snorers. However, we can usually only tell that a person snores if we’ve spent the night with them (whether by ourselves or as a group sleepover, perhaps) or among couples whether married or not. But once the lights are out and we drift off to dreamland, we began to despise being around our snoring partner as their snoring can keep us tossing and turning the entire night and deprive us of precious sleep.
However, let us look past the symptom and understand why people snore in the first place. It’s not just a habit that annoys people but is actually a medical condition that also needs medical help. Getting checked and treated is the least you can do for them as snoring may eventually mess with their breathing while sleeping and compromise their health in a snap.

It is the reason why relationships end before they even blossom. Even married couples face such challenges that result in divorce. While technically not really a relationship issue, snoring has ended relationships as often as personal differences, fallouts, money issues and infidelity do. If the other person is a snorer, it is often impossible for your partner or spouse to enjoy a good night’s sleep. It can make them cranky throughout the day and not look forward to sleeping time.
