Introduce a Solution.
If they seem reluctant to do something about it, they maybe worried about what the remedy entails. They may feel self-conscious or silly wearing a snoring device in and around their mouth. There is a popular misconception that the only option is surgery or some other radical solution. Take a look at our guide to snoring treatments where you will find several natural non invasive approaches to tackle a partner's snoring.
One novel approach to prevent snoring is to buy your partner a device like the electronic snore stopper that they wear on their wrist. You could give it to them as a gift, for a birthday or some other celebration perhaps. (Boys love toys, especially electronic ones!)
If they are more receptive you can try to get them to look at the long term benefits of snoring exercises or follow other links on this site to find an appropriate way to prevent snoring for themselves.
If all else fails you can use ear plugs or a white noise generator to block out the sound. It may not be the best solution for them but if you need to get that good night sleep it maybe the only solution for you!
Good Luck and Good Sleep!
