The New York Times recently published an article listing 15 things that couples should ask each other before they plan to get married. Most of it was the usual stuff you would expect, but sandwiched between #2 (Do we have a clear idea of each other’s financial obligations and goals, and do our ideas about spending and saving mesh?) and #14 (If one of us were to be offered a career opportunity in a location far from the other’s family, are we prepared to move?) was one that jumped out at me:
7) Will there be a television in the bedroom?
Is this really a cause of so much contention? Is television in the bedroom a huge source of tension in relationships? Amidst all of the philosophical questions, that one struck me as funny. Maybe it is the strong opinions that this issue engenders that makes it so controversial.
By the way, my own answer is, HELL TO THE NO!
