My fiancé wears breathe right strips and tries to avoid sleeping on his back (or I give a little nudge if he is. He breathes much better on his side). For nights it’s really bad I use foam earplugs.

He could try breathe right strips. They help me when I have a stuffed nose during a cold.

Yeah nose strips should help, and push him on his side!

planningaway:  As PPs have mentioned, sleep study to check for sleep apnea, firstly.  If he is overweight, it can also cause snoring. 

My Fiance snores, and so I’ve just gotten used to wearing ear plugs every night.  If he sleeps on his back, it’s much worse, so sometimes I just have to lightly tap his arm so that he readjusts.  We sleep with a fan on as well, which helps block some of the noise.

planningaway:  omg i feel your pain.. For the first 4 years, my now husband did not snore and he waited to unleash his sleep apnea on me after he already reeled me in. 3.5 years later, i feel like he tricked me hahaha. If i dont fall asleep before him i toss and turn and have to kick him or poke his shoulder a few times and he never realizes hes doing it. Its not some regular snoring either.. its like a full f5 tornado in our bedroom and our bed is like sleeping on top of a dryer on spin cycle with all the vibrations haha.. if that wasnt enough, i hit the jackpot of sleeping arrangements with my pitbull who sleeps in bed with us. She snores in unison with her daddy making it a symphony of snoring and shes always cold so she needs to be like on top of one of us at all times so you will wake up to snoring with no feeling in a leg or arm. Its been really lovely fml. Lol

Yes, have a sleep study done. A partner’s snoring is not funny if it keeps you up night after night. I would definitely pursue medical options before the walk up the aisle!

MissJulianna:  I thought I had it bad. I felt my Fiance didn’t sleep for the first month we slept in the same bed because he knew there was no way I’d be ok with that noise. I remember commenting on how he didn’t snore.LOL

Husband has sleep apnea and snored like a chainsaw until he got a CPAP this summer.  I love not sleeping with ear plugs now!

planningaway:  Maybe have him sleep up a little more?  Or on his side.  My husband snores as well, but if I’m asleep before he does it, it doesn’t bother me.  Usually it just ends up with me punching him at some point in the night.

My fiancé snores so loud. Earplugs help if you can sleep with them in, and the odd nudge seems to temporarily stop it for me. I remember googling how to stop him from snoring a while ago and I came across a comment on an article from a woman who was a young and recent widow saying she would give anything to feel her husband curled up next to her in bed. It made me so sad and put the whole snoring thing in perspective for me.

My husband and I don’t sleep in the same bed. Between his snoring, the dogs (this is our fault, but the one was there before he was), and the dogs snoring I get no sleep. I’m a very very light sleeper as it is and when I don’t get enough sleep I am not pleasant. So now we start out in bed together, then I’ll sneak upstairs when he falls asleep or if something wakes me up. It’s weird, but it really has saved our marriage. I think one of us would be dead otherwise. Vacations are a little bit better because there’s not the dogs, but he still snores. Sometimes then I’ll take an Ambien or something to help keep me asleep.
