Studies show that keeping a television in the bedroom isn't healthy. For couples, a television in the bedroom can cut their sex life in half. Teenagers with TVs in their bedrooms participate in less physical activity, fewer social engagements, and often have lower grades, according to the journal Pediatrics.
Despite these findings, televisions are a popular feature in many bedrooms. Some couples find that their differing tastes in television shows often make a second TV a welcome way to avoid fighting over the remote (especially on Super Bowl weekend). Some couples also enjoy relaxing with a favorite show or movie before falling asleep.
