Default Couples, do you have a TV in your bedroom?

This is not really a serious philosophical thread, just more of a curiosity question.

We had a discussion in our office the other day (yes, when the season is slow, we communicate with each other a lot ) about having a TV in the bedroom. Out of all people in my office who are either married or in a living together situation, I ended up the only one who doesn't have a TV in the bedroom.

My husband doesn't want it there, he likes that it's always quite and dark in our bedroom with no TV noise or light inside. He feels that it's a more relaxing atmosphere, which is conducive to all other activities that he likes to do in that room. To me, it doesn't really matter one way or the other, although I did notice that without the television in the bedroom I have more peaceful sleep.

What about you guys?

NO.

The bedroom is for two things, and tv watching isn't one of them

I have a TV in my bedroom, I like to fall asleep watching TV. My SO doesn't, for all the reasons your husband cites. When we move in together he doesn't want one, but will concede if it's important to me.

I think I'll go sans.... at least at first. I DO sleep very well at his house.

Yes, there is a television in the bedroom. When I want to go to sleep, I just turn it off.

Sleep experts report that if you want a better night's sleep you should never have a tv in your bedroom. Just FYI

We did but that would be on her end. I seldom watch tv in any room and none regularly except for the seahawks and the news.
