My husband and i have been together for about 12 years now – living together for 9 years and married for 7 years this summer. We have been through a lot together – ten miscarriages, three children and everything in between.
Life is busy right now – life is really always busy. We have three kids – one in half time school and 2 home all the time. I run 2 businesses at home, my husband works out of the house about 50 hours a week then comes home to a freelance business that he works very part time. There is not a whole lot of down time for my husband and i to spend together.
On top of all that we are both workaholics and learnaholics.
& we both love our technology.
I have read many times before that having a television in your bedroom is bad for your relationship. Something about needing to keep the room distraction free so when you get to your room at the end of the day – things are more likely to happen (*wink). Or something like that.
There is no safe-from-technology room in our house. & especially not the bedroom. As i am typing this now im sitting on my bed in my room – watching television in my room while my husband sits beside me on his iphone and his laptop plug in, on and sitting at the side of the bed.
There is so much technology in here it is crazy. It’s kind of backwards. Confession time: we used to have two tvs in our room … yep.
Im not sure if this is bad for our relationship. I imagine if we kept up the crazy workaholic/learnaholic life for too long things will become strained but for now we are okay with at least being in the same room with each other.
What are the rules as far as technology in your bedroom? Do you think it really makes a difference?Share This Post: Tweet
