 Men More Likely to Suffer From Sleeplessness Due to Partners' Snoring
Men are far more likely to complain that their sleep is disturbed by their partner's snoring than women, according to a new research.

The study of 14,000 couples found that 30 per cent of men complained that they were kept awake by their partner's snoring or coughing compared to just 20 per cent of women, reports the Daily Mail.


Snoring happens when the soft tissue at the back of the throat rattles when someone breathes in and out.

This latest study found that women tended to have more trouble nodding off and often woke up several times during the night.

Almost a quarter - 24 per cent - claimed they struggled to nod off three nights a week compared to just 18 per cent of men.

A further 26 per cent of women said they had "poor" sleep quality compared to 20 per cent of men.
