Well, It's not like I am newly married , married 38+years, lol.  I gotta tell ya though, his TV watching bugs the beegeebers our of me.  He works hard and gets up super early so i understand the need to relax and veg out.  but Geee.  Our kids are out of the house , he he just turned 60 in April and not depressed but just a TV addict, per my standards.  I just figured put approx.how many hours per week he watches TV.~~~~  63!!!!~~~~   He gets up at 4:30 AM, watches taped sports show every morning.  After he gets home M-F the TV is on from 5-12.  We chat during commercialsor if I need to say something, he will "PAUSE" THE SHOW! Gee, thanks.  weekends are worse.  A lot of Fridays we go to the movies, and then when he gets home, he stays up till maybe 1 or 2 am and watch TV.  Yep, I have brought up my concern before, like I said, we have been married a long time. I am not saying I want to go oit during the week, I know he is tired, but maybe a board game , something.  Yep , I suggested that too but he doesn't like the idea.  He just tells me," If "you need to talk, that's just fine, I'll mute the TV.  I just love you being in the same room with me even if you are reading, it's a comfort to me"  I know I can't change him after many years, but geeee i get sick of even hearing the TV.  He doesn't like hotel rooms withlut a TV either, even if it's in a different language!!!  He has been like this our entire marriage, so complaining won't help.

My hubby is a tv addict too. When Im home alone I like either the tv or music on to kinda keep me company, but I hardly ever really watch a whole tv show or movie all the way through. I always tell dh hes a tv addict, it makes me nuts. I would rather have more family time.

Ugh at least with tv he can pause and talk to you, is aware of current events, etc. My hubs is a gamer/comp nerd and activity on those is neither paused nor of this world. Blah!
