In our most recent survey, carried out by YouGov, a massive 93% of UK women in relationships have said that their partner snores at some point. Snoring is often laughed off as a bit of a joke; but 75% of women with snoring partners admitted that the problem has some sort of effect on their life or relationship.
Of the 75% of women that say their partner’s snoring has impacted on their life:
- 26% say they have gone to bed first in order to get to sleep before their snoring partner
- 87% say that they have shook, nudged or kicked their partner to silence them
- More than 3 out of 10 (31%) admitted sleeping in a separate bedrooms in order to get a good nights sleep
- 9% even admit that they have considered putting a pillow over their snoring partner’s face while they sleep
Snoring can cause many problems not because it disturbs the snorer, but because it disturbs their partner.
- 59% of women say a disturbed night’s sleep leaves them feeling irritable
- 33% say it leaves them emotionally sensitive
- 24% saying they feel resentful towards the person that has disturbed them
Looking at these statistics, it is no wonder that snoring can cause so many relationship issues. Despite this, only 13% of women with a snoring partner said they or their partner had ever purchased a snoring relief product. This means that there are a lot of partners across the UK being disturbed, and a lot of relationships left to suffer.
