Does any body else live with a DEAF husband! ugh

This loving wonderful husband of mine has the TV volume up so loud that I can't even think straight. It's a constant battle of me asking him to lower the tv and him getting angry because he likes/needs it loud. He's only 32 and has no hearing problem that I know of! What is with him?!

  • My SO is the same way!! When he is not visiting, I keep the television volume down to a comfortable level, but when he's here, he has it up really loud. I ask him all the time, "Are you deaf or something??"

  • My husband is like that. But he only just turned 26. He's actually been told it would be good for him to get hearing aids because he is literally that close to being deaf. Lightning strikes screw things up bad.

  • OMG my DH is the same way! My parents are living with us and we have 2 young children. I'm always afraid he's going to wake somebody up. He BLASTS the tv so much that I can hear it downstairs. It can be past midnight and he still has it up loud. We have a constant battle on the volume. I turn on the CC so I don't have to put the volume on too loud.
