Try sleeping for a night in another room. If you feel a lot better the next day, then it is probably your husband's snoring that is disturbing your sleep. If not, then we need to see what is wrong with your own sleep!
As far as your husband is concerned - it is not just a matter of snoring. If he does, in fact, have sleep apnoea, then his risk of having a heart attack could be as much as 23 times the normal for age - he may be uninsurable. His risk for a car accident could be as much as 7 times normal - it may be illegal for him to be driving.
I am aware of at least 2 cases where people fell asleep behind the wheel and were successfully sued for many millions.
The point is that it is not "just" snoring. He is putting his own life at risk, and because of your own sleep disturbance, he is putting your and your children's lives at risk, because if YOU are tired, you are also in no state to be driving a car.
You are going to need to be tough with him. You will have to insist that he sees a sleep doctor, failing which either he sleeps in another room, or you sleep in another room. Or else make sure that he has a very good life insurance policy!
