    No, we have never had a tv in the bedroom, since we have been together (seperately or together). We subscribe to the theory that the bedroom is only for two things- sleeping and sex, so it’s a restful place. We do take the ipad to  bed to watch movies sometimes though.

    We recently got rid of our only other tv as well, so now we are totally tv free. I love it. We hadn’t had cable for years though, so it was an easy transition.

    Yeah we both wanted one. He likes when I watch tv while he goes to sleep because the noise helps him whereas I can’t have any noise so once I turn it off then I go to sleep.

    No, our TV is in the basement/family room. Neither one of us considered putting a tv in the bedroom. We’re really not there that much except for sleep and “other stuff”…

    somethingblue04:  I could honestly live without a tv in the bedroom, but my DH wanted one. So, we have one in there. Our compromise though is that as soon as he falls asleep, which is always before me, I turn it off. He says it helps him fall asleep, but it keeps me awake. So we have found a happy medium. 

    We don’t watch tv in our bedroom though during the day, only right before bed.

    We have one, but my FI broke it. And I don’t intend to replace it with a new one that works,

    We do, and we prefer to snuggle up in the bed to watch movies or our favorite shows. However, it’s not constantly on.

    We don’t live together yet and we both have tvs in our bedrooms. I don’t ever watch tv when I goto bed and neither does he. Mine is mainly for my son to watch his cartoons before bed and I’m pretty sure originally thats what his was for as well. His son is older now and sleeps in a different room.  We have watched a movie a hanfdul of times before bed but I end up turning it of before its over because he falls asleep before its over and I’m usually not into it. Lol

    somethingblue04:  we’re living with roommates for now, so the bedroom is our only private area.  We have a nice TV, not big but nice, and a Wii, and a DVD player.  We’re TV and movie people, so we love being able to watch in private.  Also, sometimes we watch something naked.  Because we can 🙂

    When we have an apartment of our own, we’ll put the TV in the family room.  When we have a house, we’ll have one in our room and one in the main room.

    We don’t have a tv in the bedroom. He doesn’t want one in there. I do bring my ipad to bed and watch tv on there When I want to, though generally only on the nights he works.

    Yes. The bedroom is basically his “haven” where he goes to relax and get away from the dogs when he gets off work, so having a TV in there is essential for him.

    somethingblue04:  Yep, I’m watching Sex and the City on it right now lol. We both wanted one, but we only really watch it when one of us is out; it doesn’t go on before bed for eg, that’s ‘us time’. I wouldn’t want it to dominate, if that makes sense, and it doesn’t.

    My partner and I deserve each others attention in the bedroom.  We don’t want to compete with a television.

    somethingblue04:  When he first moved in, yes we did.  I was currently living with a roommate and he didn’t want to share the TV with the roommate becuase of his Xbox, so in my room it went.  I liked having the TV in the room becuase for us it didn’t affect our sex life, our sleeping life, or any of that.  We also had different schedules so watching some movies on Netflix was nice if I was by myself for the night waiting on him to come home.  After my roommate moved out (December) it stayed there until I think March?  Because we finally got our act together and cleared out the room it was intended to be.
