If you aren’t getting your zzzz’s…
You might land in divorce court
It’s an all too familiar scene that plays out in numerous bedrooms across Algonquin. One person is snoring, while the other spends their entire night dealing with the snorer. They spend their night elbowing and nudging and grumbling their way through anothersleepless night. At some point, in those dark, deep Algonquin morning hours, someone generally makes the trek to the couch or spare bedroom. Usually the “culprit” is completely unaware of anything that’s going on. They are oblivious to the fact their spouse is annoyed, discontent and ready to move on.
A peaceful, deep night’s sleep could save your marriage
While snoring isn’t letting you get restful sleep, it’s also damaging and taking its toll on your relationship. If you are the one snoring, you don’t full understand what your partner is going through. If you are waking a lot during the night or if you struggle with persistent snoring, your partner’s sleep is as equally compromised. Even if night after night they are the recipient of your sleep habits and they seemingly adjust to your ways, their sleep is being equally compromised.
Simply put – couples struggling with snoring and sleep apnea, have a higher rate of divorce. Both people are lacking proper sleep, resulting in an increase in conflict, tension and in the end, it puts undue stress and strain on the marriage.
