How snoring can break up a marriage;D plzzz read.


Washington, Feb.03 (ANI): Preliminary results of a scientific sleep study have shown that sleep apnea does indeed put a strain on a marriage, and that couples struggling with sleep apnea have a higher divorce rate.

Researchers at the Sleep Disorders Center at Rush University Medical Center are now conducting a scientific sleep study to find out whether curing people of snoring can help save a marriage.
Rosalind Cartwright, PhD, founder of the Sleep Disorders Center, said that studies had revealed that couples who struggle with sleep apnea have a higher record of broken marriages.

"Couples who struggle with sleep apnea have a high-divorce rate. This is a frequent problem within marriages that nobody is paying enough attention to. Can we save marriages by treating sleep apnea? It's a question we hope to answer," she said.

The Married Couples Sleep Study will be based on the evaluation of 10 couples in which the male has been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea.

As a part of the study, couples answer surveys about sleepiness, marriage satisfaction, and quality of life. They then spend the night in the sleep lab where technicians determine each partner s quality and quantity of sleep. Following two weeks of treatment, the diagnostic tests and surveys are repeated.

Dr Cartwright said that preliminary results had shown that sleep apnea does indeed put a strain on a marriage.

"Our early results are showing that the wife's sleep is indeed deprived due to the husband s noisy nights. This is not a mild problem. The lack of sleep for both partners puts a strain on the marriage and creates a hostile and tense situation," said Cartwright.

In one case, the researchers found that after a husband had undergone two weeks of a non-invasive treatment that prevents the upper airway from collapsing during sleep by allowing the lungs to function normally during sleep, his wife's quality of life measure jumped from a 1.2 to a 7.

The treatment is called continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP).

Lolol sis, astaghfirullah. I mean who'd think snoring could lead to divorce? But it's true I've read countless stories of it happening. That, or the poor hubby gets banished to the spare room. Thank God no poor bloke has been sent to sleep in the shed yet for sounding like a pneumatic drill :giggling:

I don't know but I just so happend to find this article and I dont know what the point in it was it to let us know to be aware of our snoring habits or was it to tell us that the statistics of marriage actually does break when a spouse snores. I thought it was very hilarious I definetly couldn't help myself but I couldn't resist either but to post I just had a good laugh;D

It does sound funny. But the serious side of it is, when your partner is snoring like a train thundering past, it's hard to sleep and in the long term results in extreme tiredness. Then ppl get snappy & moody and arguments start. Not just abt the snoring, but anything trivial can lead to a full scale row.

The snorer suffers too, because they actually stop breathing for a while then snort loudly when it begins again. This affects their quality of sleep too. Luckily most wives just elbow their husbands lol, or pinch their noses to stop their snoring, instead of filing for divorce.

^ It's not! :(

I remember when my husband used to snore. Sometimes I'd just nudge him and other times I'd pinch his nose and hope he doesn't notice. But I tell ya there were days when I wanted to suffocate him with a pillow. :mad:

It's like trying to sleep next to a human rattle snake. Only the rattle is in his mouth. :uhwhat

How do they expect to survive the trials and tribulations involved in a married life if they break up over each other snoring? If they can't put up with that they would've eventually divorced in my opinion.

I believe that people actually snore when their mouths are open in the sleep :hmm:
Those who snore should try to keep their mouths closed while sleeping.

MashaAllah you care about what'll happen to your future wife if u snore. The most common reason for snoring is being over weight and sleeping on your back. So keep that in check and you should be fine.

And don't worry, when I said I wanted to suffocate my husband, I was only joking.. So dun worry, it won't to that with your wife inshaAllah :giggling: I did feel like throttling my husband though.

Don't worry brother IsaAbdullah. Before sleeping, do zikrullah and just follow the sunnah way of sleeping. inshaaAllah nothing should worry you then. :)

I'm such a calm person but I have a problem while sleeping. I talk in my sleep and I talk trash in my sleep. Just wondering if this could plague me later on when I get married.

^actually it might not be a problem. Your wife might find you talking in you sleep quiet entertaining. My little boy also talks in his sleep and it just cracks me up. Just pray you don't end up saying what you wouldn't in real life though ;D

I don't snore but my main problem is that I trash-talk in my sleep things I wouldn't in real life!

Oh, let's just say that I'm glad someone is finding this entertaining.:offended:

I heard someone sleep talking before, just once. It was the FUNNIEST thing that happened in my life- I was laughing for like 15 minutes! ;D Lucky for my friend what she said was more like something of yell and not any real words.:giggling:

Sleep talking is a scary thought though. :offended:

If any of you had to choose between sleep talking and snoring, then what would you choose ?
And the situation is that you HAVE to make a choice. If you don't, then you get both.
So what would your choice be?

Sleep talking. Only I'd prefer in it I was doing zikrullah rather than talking nonsense. Then my malaykat would become a very happy malaykat, writing good deeds for from midnight up until fajr.

Don't give the 'ifs' and 'buts'. ;)
Just stick to the question.
If any of you had to choose between sleep talking and snoring -(like any normal person) then what would you choose ?
