It does not really require one to be a marriage or relationship counsellor to know that snoring can do some major damage to a relationship. If left untreated, it can actually be the end of a relationship.
It is not rare to hear couple complain about a snoring spouse and sometimes people on the outside of the relationship may think that it is blowing things out of proportion, but it really isn’t. It may take years for a snoring partner to actually see the light and seek help for a snoring problem, but by then it may usually be too late and the relationship may be in shambles.
If you have ever slept in the same room as someone who snores you are in a better position to understand. The main problem is that people who snore somehow seem to sleep right through it. It is the non-snoring partner who is usually dealt the biggest blow by the snoring which is why an Anti-Snoring device may come in handy.
This is not to say that the person doing the snoring gets away scoot free because snoring will have its effect on their heal and body. It will just take more time to notice it and again, by the time they do they are relatively late. Snoring has been known to lead to sleep apnea when left untreated and this condition has then been linked to brightening risks of suffering from heart disease.
Heart disease is another blow that will put a strain on an already struggling relationship. This is why snoring is not to be taken lightly.
The biggest risk to a relationship ate the hands of snoring will come at the very beginning. When a partner or a spouse starts snoring, it will never be easy to tell them that they do and one will feel sorry and guilty for having to tell them that they snore.
It may take weeks or even months to tell them and every single night it goes from guilt to frustration which builds up and finally when they let loose it usually isn’t polite. This will in turn cause the partner who snores to feel cornered and they are most likely to become defensive.
It therefore becomes hard to convince them that they have a problem that they need to address and they start seeing their partner as being malicious for looking at their short comings. If this state continues, it is usually only a matter of time before the fights start about other things and eventually the relationship completely breaks down.
Sometimes it may not take a direct route and it is the sleep deprivation that gets to the snorers partner. When someone goes without sleep for a few days they do become agitated and they will then start snapping at people for the littlest of things. This will end a relationship very fast and where it doesn’t it will put a heavy strain on it.
