My Husband and I decided not to have a tv in the bedroom because we wanted it to be a relaxed place, quiet, and for intimacy and no tv’s. How many other spouses out there chose not to have a tv in the bedroom and why?

Yes, but we dont use it. It’s only there because we upgraded our living room tv and didnt have a better place to put it.

When you’re in college, you don’t have much choice. After we moved into our townhouse, I decided that the TV wasn’t going in the bedroom, Fiance fell asleep with it on far too often. I also banned other electronics with noises and lights, but that doesn’t work very well with EVERYTHING having LEDs on it these days. The heater, vacuum, and power strip put off so much light it’s not even funny.

No tv in our bedroom. I never had a tv in my room growing up either. It’s a quiet space to relax and sleep. A tv would just keep me up all night, LOL! The only time I wish I had a tv in our room is when I’m sick, but now I have an iPad with Netflix and various tv apps on it, so problem solved!

@MuchGreater: No TV in our bedroom for the same reason, it’s our sanctuary. We’re not big TV people anyway and rarely watch it. We mainly only watch movies. And hate commercials, so love DVR. Edit: We do watch movies in our bedroom on our awesome gaming computer monitor, it’s huge with great sound that my son hooked up for us.

We have one, but we rarely use it. We watch TV in the living room much more often. Still, it’s nice to have to occasionally use to cuddle up and watch a movie.

Yes, and the only reason is because there’s no where else to put our 2nd one. I personally don’t believe in TVs in the bedroom so when we move there will not be one in there.

We have talked about it but I would like to keep it ‘our bedroom’ and not a place to go lay around and be lazy. If we want to watch TV we can go to the living room.

No, I don’t have room in my bedroom! Plus I don’t have cable. Although I will from time to time watch movies/TV shows on my laptop or tablet in my room, just not on a TV!

One of our biggest arguments when we first moved in together was the TV in the bedroom (I actually wrote a post similar to this a long time ago – ha!)..he always grew up with one, snacked in bed, basically depended on it. I don’t view our bedroom as an entertainment place. It’s our sanctuary! I know DH misses it but I think he appreciates TV more now

We do, DH likes to fall asleep with it on. We have two DVRs and the one in the bedroom is “mine” so all my garbage tv gets recorded up there 😉

– Yes, be we don’t really use it. Fi will watch tv before bed sometimes, but very rarely. The most we watch on it is a movie before bed.

We did have one in our bedroom but it wasn’t hooked up to our tv service. So you could only watch DVD’s on it. I finally gave it to my mom to put in her kitchen. (It was super small.) Because we never used it. So, no we don’t.

No, I’ve had one at other points in life and so has my husband but we decided not to have one in our bedroom. I feel that I sleep better without one, plus I think we talk and listen more to each other when there are no distractions which we like.

We do. We’re movie people and love to just lay there and cuddle watching movies, especially on lazy rainy days 🙂 We can’t do that in the family room since our couch isn’t very comfortable!
