    ---would you give up using your computer when the two of you are together, if he/she requested it, with the reason being that it is taking quality time from the relationship.

    Yes I would. Just another reason to stay divorced...:)

    Yes - but I would then ask that he not watch sports on TV in return.

    Compromise and moderate, yes. Completely give up something I enjoy? No. I would never expect that of him, if he would expect it he's not the right guy for me!

    Absolutely. I'd also give it up for the kids. I spend less time on it than I would if I didn't have kids already, when they're up and scooting around, I log off.

    If my man was here I certainly wouldn't be on the frigging computer, I'll tell you that. :cool:

    I'm thinking we would find much more entertaining things to do...........................:redface:

    I'm usually on the laptop in my recliner, my wife on the couch beside me watching TV.

    I can't stand her television programs, she can't stand mine. So by unwritten rule the person who has the remote forfeits the rights to the computer.
