It gets annoying after the honeymoon phase lol. My Darling Husband only snores loud when he’s had a few too many drinks, which doesn’t happen often. He uses the breath right nose strips and usually quiets down if I roll him on his side.

Has he seen a doctor to rule out a deviated septum or sleep apnea?  Could be a medical condition that should be addressed.

Darling Husband only snores occasionally, normally when he’s got bad allergies and is having a hard time sleeping as a result. If I can’t sleep through it, I roll him over. 

Now my parents are a different story. My dad is a horrible, loud, nonstop snorer. Growing up, my dad used the nose strips and my mom slept with ear plugs in. Now they sleep in different rooms. And my mom still wears earplugs, because they share a wall and she can still hear it.

I’ve just gotten use to it. The snoring has become more like white noise than anything. Lol

RPSGT here. If he’s tired during the day, or has morning headaches, moodiness etc. It’s worth getting checked out. Tbh even loud snoring is something I would mention to the doc but obviously I’m biased.

My SO snores too, worse when he’s sick or has been drinking.  It’s tolerable most of the time but when it’s bad I put on my wireless headphones with some classical and drift back off.  Not a deal breaker.  But we don’t live togther yet!

Ditto on the earplugs. Mack’s Snore Blockers are a godsend.

My SO snores too and I am a really light sleeper so it drives me a little crazy. Rolling him into his side does help. He also had a special pillow that is a foam wedge. It props him up a little and it decreases the snoring significantly. They also make devices for your mouth that pull your lower jaw slightly forward and that will stop snoring entirely if the other quick fixes don’t work and your sleep is affected. I agree with PPs that it is also worth mentioning to the doctor to ensure he doesn’t have a medical condition such as sleep apnea.

My solution is to go to sleep first. Darling Husband can sound like a basket of bricks sliding down a concrete wall on jackhammers, and sometimes beating him to bed is the best move. He doesn’t always snore that loudly and it’s worse when he sleeps on his back, so it’s not an every night thing, but yeah, getting to sleep first helps a lot.
