Does Someone You Love Snore?

Or should I ask, does someone you love snore loudly right in your ear? You can find lots of stuff written about sleep apnea, and the health of the "snorer" -- but how about the lost sleep of the person trying to sleep next to the snorer? It can make or break relationships.
Snoring is defined as "breathing during with sleep with hoarse or harsh sounds as caused by the vibrating of the soft palate." It is often portrayed humorously in cartoons with an overweight man who snores so loudly that the roof of his house moves up and down with each breath, keeping the neighborhood up and the dogs howling. -- National Sleep Foundation
Maybe you just need to learn to count sheep?
