    Default Would you be frustrated

    My husband no matter what time it is or if I'm sleeping or not will turn on the TV in our room because he can't sleep ...It ****es me off because more often than not I get woken up of a morning because of him ....no such thing as a sleep in ....

    I'd kill anyone that did that. it's incredibly rude and inconsiderate. if you've asked him not to do this, and he persists, then he's an a$s. sorry.

    if he wants to watch tv, tell him to go watch another TV in the house.

    the other option (and I'd be recommending this strongly) is to lose the tv in the bedroom. I personally can't stand tvs in bedrooms. bedrooms are a place of rest, not for watching tv. tvs in bedrooms cause so much friction between couples I find! lose the TV and get the bedroom back for what it should be: a calm and relaxed space for rest and relaxation.

    I don't get how anyone would think this is okay. He's being incredibly selfish.

    He could watch TV in another room, or at the very least wear headphones so you aren't disturbed by the noise.

    Poor form & man-child behaviour.

    Have you asked him to stop? If you have asked him to stop and he persisted then move the TV out of your room. If he asks why you did that just explain how you will not allow yourself to be disrespected any longer by being continually woken up for such unnecessary reasons.

    the light from the TV is also disruptive when you're sleeping, especially if the room is dark.

    sorry but tvs do not belong in bedrooms.

    You poor thing, I'd be pretty cranky! Is there any reason why he can't go to the lounge room? Just because he can't sleep shouldn't mean that you can't too. I wonder what he would say if you did the same thing to him?

    I agree with others, if you've spoken to him about it but he still keeps doing it I'd be looking at moving the tv out of your room. It's unfair to keep you awake.

    If he can't sleep, don't come to bed to watch TV.

    This is exactly what I would be doing. No way would I be putting up with that. Sleep is too precious.
