Disagreement over the TV is the one topic where my husband and I CAN NOT see eye to eye. We have argued about this for over 7 years (since we started dating) - and we have never figured out how to compromise on this issue or come to any real conclusion as to how to deal with it.
I wish we didn’t have one (or had it in the closet and just pulled it out for movies, etc…), primarily because of the immorality displayed. It really desensitizes us to evil. I also really lack the discipline to limit how much I watch. I just get sucked in by it. My husband doesn’t see the tv as any big deal. He would see no problem with the tv being on most of the day- just playing in the background - And he really doesn’t watch that much tv - some sports and 1-3 shows a week.
I really want my husband and I to get to point where we argee on this topic (really I just want him to agree with me :o ) . Especially for the sake of our baby and any other kids we may have. We can’t keep on arguing for another 7 years!
Does anyone else disagree with their spouse about the television? What do you do about it?
Do you have limits on the TV and how often it is on (for yourself and/or your children)? What are the limits?
If you don’t have a TV in your home - how did you come to this decision?
