DH refuses to go to bed at the same time, then wakes me up!

Usually this wouldn't bother me.  But the last few weekends he is staying up until 3 or 4 in the morning, then comes to bed and is so overtired that he snores like a train locomotive throughout the house, waking me.

Last night it was after 4 am when he went to bed. His snoring started waking me up at 5:30 and I finally gave up, and got up at 6:30am. I am sick with the flu and feel like beating the doo doo out of him! I want to go back to bed!

I have asked him (in a calm adult conversational manner)to go to bed at a better hour, he just never does. Would you try and deal with it? Or would you tell him off and throw a fit at this point?

What would you do?

    Always try to remain calm. Remind him that you're only asking because it is having a negative affect on you. Or maybe he can crash on the couch and you can wake him to move to the bedroom when you wake up :)

    I sleep with earplugs in. My DH works full time and goes to school full time. So he's up doing homework intul the wee hours of the morning. He was waking me up when he came to bed, but then I got the earplugs and I don't even hear him come into the room.

    I would sleep in the spare bedroom or the couch if that happened to me.

    It's just not worth a fight to me. My DH has always done first I tried talking calmly....then freaking out....all it did was cause problems.

    Now I just don't care.......when he comes to bed and starts snoring...I gently tap him and tell him to roll over on his side.........and he stops snoring.

    It's not worth a big blow out.

    What does the time he goes to bed have to do with his snoring? If he goes to bed the same time as you, then you wouldnt get any sleep. no?

    My dh snores regularly:( I usually go to another room. But it's tough, having to get up wakes me up, so I rarely fall asleep again.
