I am!!! That was one of my requirements before I agreed to remarry!! Never again would I let a man take over the tv or remote!! I'm on husband #3, I have a lot of experience in these things..LOL!!

Actually, though, we almost never watch tv. He likes tv even less than I do and never turns it on at home. If I'm occasionally watching something, it's on my little 19" tv next to my computer desk. He'll sometimes peek in on what I'm watching, but loses interest soon and goes back to his computer or reading. In hotels, we sometimes will turn the tv on for a little while. He's usually the first one to turn it on and I let him fiddle with the channels for a bit, then I'll take over. I'm a take over kind of gal. Bet you could have guessed that..lol!

Never would have guessed Donna,
Although with as little tv as you two watch .. wouldn't think it was a problem.
So he doesn't mind then that you prefer to hang on to it?
Nice going :)
