That is a loaded poll. Even if you answer "Never", you are admitting she snores. That's good Wade. I like it !!! You're bad brother... Bad to the bone.

My signature says she's my navigator and best friend... I'd like to keep it that way.

OK... I admit, I'm chicken.

Don't have an RV in the yard, but my DW does sneak off to another bedroom when I snore. I also get up earlier, so I go quietly to the den to let her sleep.

He's just lucky he doesn't have a RV in the driveway. Hi Hi.. I think Andy was just taking the easy way out.

I don't see everyone piling on this pole. Where are you guys, I need help.

You should have voted "scared to tell"

Wife snores and she will move to the other end of the house. I have had to abandon the house for the RV that is 150' back from the street. Our lovely across the street neighbor let her kids have a WILD party and their pool is easily 300' from the street, 400' from our house. It was so loud in the house that it woke up our old deaf dog. I had to go to work the next day, so I moved to the trailer about midnight and turned the A/C ob high fan and managed to get some sleep.

I didn't see that option Wade. Must have missed it. I move for a re-pole.

Looking at Ken's post, now there is a brave man. But he's a Texan. Sometimes Ken, it's better to take the high road and be safe. Remember the Alamo ? Or, was that the low road ?

I just cannot get over that Andy taking the easy way out. Heck of a Texan he would make.

My wife just looked over my shoulder and said, "you better not have voted yes." Wade's just stirring trouble. This is worse than talking religion and politics.

I have never had to do it because of a snoring spouse. Besides she would be more likely the one to leave because I snore very loudly, I have all my life. So badly that my parents took me to a ear nose and throat specialist when I was only 8 years old. Some times as I am falling to sleep my snoring wakes me up.

BUT, I have left the comfort of the house to hide in the motor home to escape my then 2 year old son. At that point in my past I was laid off from my job and decided to get more schooling especially since my employer was footing the bill. What I ended up doing was enrolling in a course of classes in electronics that if I had taken at regular full time would have taken 18 months, we completed them in 9 months. So to get away from the 2 year old so I could study I would tell the wife I was going to study hall and I would go out into the motor home and study. those days were tough on me, I also suffered a bout with pleurisy during that time and never missed a day of classes. Pulled a solid B+ average in the end.
