النوم في غرف منفصلة قد ينقذ علاقتك الزوجية

A man snoring

Hello and welcome to BBC Xtra English!

Today Abigail and Louay talk about snoring.

Snoring might not seem to be a serious problem for some people but to others it can mean no sleep at night.

Many couples who sleep together in the same bed can be badly affected by snoring and this can cause their relationship to suffer.

Some couples have even divorced or separated because of this issue, whilst other people who could not get a good night's sleep have suffered from depression, reduced productivity and even driving accidents.

Sleep specialist Dr Neil Stanley told the BBC that if someone cannot get sleep because of their partner, they should talk with each other about sleeping in separate rooms.

Dr Stanley runs a sleep laboratory at the University of Surrey here in the UK that studies the sleeping patterns of people.

He says that although couples think they sleep better together, many actually sleep better when they sleep separately.

He also told the BBC that historically, couples would sleep in separate rooms anyway, and it is only because of the industrial revolution that people began sleeping together because they had less space in their houses and were forced to share their beds.

What do you think of what Dr Stanley said to the BBC? Do you think that sleeping in separate rooms is a suitable solution? Why? Write to us in English!

For me I actually don't like snoring, I would like to say that the main cause of snoring may be exhaust and being tired, My advice for people who snore most of time to sleep on their side not back or abdomen.
Bilal, Gaza, Palestine

Well, I think the solution of Dr.Neil is temporary which will lead to a cold marital relationship in the long run, so I think it's better to consult a specialist to solve it medically,as well as snoring has not a terrible impact on marital relationship only, but also it it adversely affects the various organs of the body, causing lethargy, general weakness, as a result of the lack of an adequate supply of oxygen to the body.
