For those wondering what the secret to a happy marriage is, it may very well be a good night’s sleep.
If you struggle with nonstop snoring or if you wake up multiple times during the night, you already know the effect your sleep disorder has on you. What you may not recognize is the toll is it taking on your partner, even if he/she doesn’t show it.
Aside for the numerous health problems caused by sleep disorders, it is shown that couples who have to deal with snoring and/or sleep apnea experience a higher divorce rate. This is no surprise since not getting enough sleep can cause increased conflict, stress and tension in a marriage. These unhealthy frustrations may even go beyond the bedroom and affect your relations with others (e.g. friends, family, coworkers). Lacking proper sleep can trigger a myriad of emotions, intensify new problems, create new ones, and again, lead to depression. There is no denying how vital sleep is to every aspect of your life!
