    We don’t. Neither of us has any interest in having a TV in the bedroom.

    I wouldn’t stand for a tv in our bedroom.  There is no way I could sleep w/it there.  DH considered it but I strongly vetoed it so he’s fine.  We just have 1 tv and it’s in the living room.  We can snuggle in our guest bed to watch tv on DH’s computer if we want.

    I voted other.  I currently have a TV in my room and it’s nice when I’m sick which is often.  He and I could live without a tv in our rooms or in our room when we’re married.  It doesn’t matter a whole lot to me either way.

    I prefer not to have one.  However, we live in a one bedroom condo.  I feel like the key to a happy relationship is two tvs.  🙂  Once we move to a bigger house, the tv will have to go.

    Before living together, we both had TVs in our bedrooms. Once we moved in together, we didn’t put one in the bedroom. I thought we would both want a tv in the bedroom but we don’t. Now, I’m glad we don’t have one.

    I wouldn’t mind having one in the bedroom, but DH is deadset against it, so we don’t.

    If we only had one TV and had to choose between keeping it in the bedroom or the den, I’d choose den. But we have multple TVs so it isn’t an issue.

    I always had a TV in my bedroom until we moved in together. We didn’t put one in our room and I was surprised to find that I love it! It’s nice because we get to wind down and just spend time together at night, read, etc. We can always snuggle on the couch in the living room to watch movies if we want to!

    I was opposed to it, but when we didn’t have one, then we would fall asleep in the living room all the time. Now, we can fall asleep in bed, I can mute or not, and turn it off in the middle of the night without having to get up and go into the bedroom. It works for us

    We have two TVs, one in the living room, and a smaller one in our bedroom. Fiance was used to having a tv in his bedroom and falling asleep with it on; I HATE waking up with the TV still on so we compromise and he always turns it off before his head hits the pillow. Normally we only watch the TV for 30 minutes or so, to relax, and then hit the hay. Sometimes hell put it onsleep` mode to make sure that it shuts off. 

    I have girlfriends who dont allow their SOs to have tvs in the bedroom. Personally, I dont find it to be a big deal, as long as its not on when…. cough… you know…and as long as its not all we do. We do have our good chats and sometimes its just nice to sit in each others company 🙂

    We’re both anti-TV in the bedroom. For us it’s a place for rest and relaxation. Also, we definitely won’t allow our (future) children to have TVs in their bedrooms, so it wouldn’t seem right if we had one in ours.

    We only ever had a TV in our bedroom for a few months while DHs friend lived with us. Ever since then, we dont have one. Studies have shown that having a TV in the bedroom can reduce the amount you have sex. No thank you!

    We like the tv in our bedroom. We just use it for the news or a short tv show before bed at night. It is great when one of us is sick, too.

    I had a TV in my bedroom the entire time I lived at home. If I didn’t, I never would have been able to watch anything. The TV in the family room was usually occupied by my brother playing video games, and my parents had the TV in the den. FH hasn’t even owned a TV in 4 years.

    Ever since I’ve moved out though, I haven’t had a TV in the bedroom. Sometimes I wish I had one because I’d like to watch TV in bed, but I doubt we’ll be putting one in.
