My husband used to wear like a head band type thing. Apparently it keeps your chin and mouth shut.

I definitely think a visit to the Doctor is a good idea.
My husband snored - really loudly too. He also had an annoying habit of constantly clearing his throat, so between the two there was. no. rest.
Like you, I'm an insomniac too. Conditions have to be optimal for me to get any sleep at all. With HIM around it was darn near impossible
I hauled him off to the GP and lodged an official complaint. The Doctor said he suspected a long term nasal infection and prescribed a course of antibiotics with 5 repeats, which my husband still takes. He also suggested a nasal rinse (We used a brand called 'Flo') and hubby started a rigorous routine of using listerine every morning and evening.
Well, the result has been incredible. He still snores sporadically, but SO much quieter than before and only for part of the night, not constantly. The throat-clearing has been greatly reduced also.
Maybe some of these are things your hubby could try? I certainly noticed the difference. Hubby is still blissfully unaware, of course

My dh went and had a sleep study done as his snoring was so bad despite trying all the mouthguards/nasal strips etc available. I sleep with earplugs & use to retreat to the spare bed regularly until ds arrived and we lost the spare room.
Dh was a case of 'unknown' though, no issues with tonsils, adnoids, sleep apnea, not weight related etc. They agreed he snores something terrible but no actual physical reason why could be established. He was fitted with a specialised mouthguard and whilst it doesn't stop it 100%, the change was instant and so relieving. I can actually sleep through him now 95% of the time
I had read somewhere at the time that diet can affect snoring, especially caffeine but I had no chance of convincing him to look further into that side of things

My DP snores a lot but I mostly sleep through it. I installed a sleep talk app recently to see if either of us talk in our sleep, and all it recorded was several bouts of DP snoring! I was amazed how often he snores as I never get woken up by it!

YES!! terribly! I am a very very light sleeper and also sometimes have trouble going to sleep. He never really snored when we were younger but has gotten gradually worse. I think some of it is weight gain as he has changed jobs and is now in front of a computer instead of doing alot of physical work!
He refuses to go to the doctor which frustrates me even more. Its gotten to the point i now have my own room!! That is where i sleep 95 percent of the time.(i can still hear him some nights!) But it works for us at the moment

Does anyone's husband snore?? How do you deal with it?
Yes! It used to be so bad. Things that have helped:
Weight loss - he's not over weight but as soon as he starts to gain, his snoring gets worse.
Sleeping on his side - he has this wedge thing that he wears on his back to stop him rolling over. I've seen similar thing in a tennis ball shirt.
Mouth guard - fitted by dentist
Swift poke to the ribs if all the above fails.
ETA: DH had a sleep study done and the above were recommendations from the dr (the rib poke was my suggestion )

Gah I could have written your post OP! I'm also an insomniac at times but thankfully sleeping like a baby at the moment (UTD). He's got a cold so kicked up a notch at the mo. Finally kicked him to the couch last night to get 6.5 hours. We're going to try tonight with wave sounds to mask his darth vaderish snore! Maybe try that?!
