It may sound like a funny question, but there’s nothing funny about it when you’re with a partner that snores. In fact, studies show snoring can and has ruined relationships. Snoring is a multi-factorial, serious issue. It is a sign that your airway is being partially blocked. The sound is made as the flow of air causes tissue in the back of your throat to vibrate. The sound can come through the nose, the mouth, or both. When one’s snoring gets out of control, most couples resort to sleeping in separate beds, which often has drastic effects on emotional and sexual relations.
