Snoring is putting many sex lives to sleep: When do we just give up sharing a bed and snooze separately?
Think his snoring is just annoying? It could actually be hazardous to your health. New research by the British Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Association has found that the health of the partner of the snorer suffers as a result of being disturbed regularly throughout the night, according to the Daily Mail. So what should we do—sleep in separate beds? Rooms?
we started looking further into this and asking around the Mom•Logic office, we discovered that just about half the Moms wake up separately from their husbands already. Whether it's because of snoring or a bed too crowded with kids, chances are someone's waking up on the couch, in the guest room, or curled up in a kiddie bed.
"Sleeping apart definitely puts a damper on your sex life," says Mom•Logic senior writer/producer Julie Taylor, co-author of How to Be a Dominant Diva. "If you are not physically close night after night, you're likely to grow apart sexually and emotionally, too."
If you frequently sleep apart from your husband, try Taylor's tips:
60-minute snuggle: Does your hubby snore? If earplugs just aren't cutting it, make an effort to snuggle together at least an hour a night. "Just because you don't sleep together doesn't mean you can't spend time in bed together," she says. "Fit in some intimate time at least once a day."
