    My husband is Deaf and he uses a bed shaker alarm clock. It works well, but if I want to sleep in and he needs to get up early, I get woken up by his alarm. Does anyone know of another alarm clock that can wake him up and not me? Thanks!

    I remember reading “Journey into the Deaf-World” and there’s a statistic that says 9 out of 10 deaf people marry deaf. This book came out in 1996. Do you think that statistic has changed today? What's your experience, yourself and those you know?
