After writing this week about the link between marriage and better sleep, I heard from several skeptical readers who were the long-suffering bed partners of snorers.
"I'm happily married, but never get a good night's sleep because of the noise!" wrote Lisa.
"Are you kidding me?" Caroline wrote. "My husband snores louder than a lawnmower, and I kick him harder than Beckham with a soccer ball. We both slept much better when single."
It's true that sleeping with a snorer can take a toll on your health. People who sleep next to snorers report high levels of fatigue and sleepiness and may even be at higher risk for hearing loss.
