    The way to solve that is to go with the coldest temp, because the other person can always put more layers on LOL, and I say that because I’m usually the cold blooded one in the house, being from Michigan!

  • juliepersinger August 26, 2008  

    No, we don’t. I’m usually hot and don’t want to be. Greg is fine being hot.

  • Jenn August 26, 2008  

    hardly ever…I love it when Heath is out of town and the temp is mine to control! I am always cold….even in winter but I hate to sweat…poor Heath has to deal with that odd mix all the time!

  • JudiFree.com August 26, 2008  

    yes yes yes. I like it at 72, he likes it at 70. I like the fan off, he likes it on.

    I live with a blanket on at my house.

  • Vic August 26, 2008  

    I have to say we do. We keep it set on 69 year round. Even though I will have to say we are trying to adjust to higher temperatures but we have not been very successful

  • jodyduncan August 26, 2008  

    Karen is having hot flashes lately sothat has benefited my hot nature. We usually keep the house around 72*. Ladies, you can always get more blankets or a long sleeve. How is a man supposed to cool off if he is hot, even while sleeping naked on top of the sheets? Come on, girls. LOL

  • melissa1970 August 26, 2008  

    We’re 73 degrees year round and no one complains. I’m not sure how we escaped that battle…but trust me, we have many others!

  • Jared Woodard August 26, 2008  

    Were a “Below Freezing” couple,but our electric bill isnt a big fan of that :S. We keep it at 72

  • Jenni Catron August 26, 2008  

    @Jenn – I’m with you. Love it when the thermostat is all mine to control.

    @Judi – I live with a blanket or sweatshirt at all times!

  • Heidi August 26, 2008  

    I love it cold, (hot flashes) so my husband doesn’t complain to much..

  • janowen August 26, 2008  

    we do okay in the summer, but in the winter i am always cold. in the car we always disagree as well.

    same story….i’m always cold and he’s always hot

  • sarah o August 26, 2008  

    i like it cooler…my hubby likes it warmer. this summer the temp has been set between 71-73 and its very comfy 🙂

  • tam August 26, 2008  

    i have like, ZERO blood pressure, so i am always cold.

    nuff said.

  • Michelle Wegner August 27, 2008  

    Never. My daughter came yelling out of her room this morning that the house was freezing. No one is ever happy. ever. Pretty funny

  • Melissa August 27, 2008  

    We actually do agree. We leave it at 69 or 70 all year. I am not a nice person when I am hot, so we keep it on the cooler side.

  • Ladybird August 27, 2008  

    Since I have been pregnant, he lets me set it on whatever I want! LOL! That is why we wake up with frost on the windows! But normally, I let him set it, because I like to cover up with blankets anyway….I am more cozy that way.

  • Pam August 27, 2008  

    Ash’s mom and dad do NOT agree! I like it COLD he, not so much. Ash wears a hoody when she comes home to visit! 🙂

    Jenni – I love reading your blog everyday! -Ashley has encouraged me to comment several times – on this issue I can definitely relate!

  • jdellis August 27, 2008  

    This is a very sensitive subject in our home. My wife would live on the surface of the sun if that was possible. I tend to lean the other direction.

    In the end I gave up controlling interest of the thermostat to acquire controlling interest of the remote control. I’m still not sure it was a good trade.

  • Jenni Catron August 27, 2008  

    Yeah Pam – so glad you finally commented!!

    @jdellis – I think I could join your wife on the surface of the sun 🙂 I need to work that deal with my husband. Currently he controls the theromostat AND the remote control!!

  • mandythompson August 27, 2008  

    we currently don’t have a thermostat in our apartment… and our bodies have adjusted to a wider range of temperatures! but, for the most part, drew likes it to be much cooler than i do.

    i think that’s normal for men & women, though.

  • Andy Borgmann August 28, 2008  

    This isn’t just a “marital” issue – as my roommate (dude) likes the thermostat so cold when he sleeps – I am talking like 68. I am freezing the whole time. I try to close the vents in my room, but it doesn’t seem to help.

    Does this make me the woman in our relationship?

    Like Tam above, I too have horrendously low blood pressure.

  • rachbeav August 28, 2008  

    We disagree but I just live with it and wear fuzzy slippers at all times and thick socks to bed because my feet are always cold. Talk about sex appeal gone awry but that’s the price he pays for living in the frozen tundra. Thankfully our van has separate controls so he can be 62 while I’m 78 on my side. 🙂

    Like others said, I got my ‘revenge’ while I was pregnant. I would sleep in a tank top on top of the covers with the thermostat on 68 while JB was buried in covers.

  • alex August 29, 2008  

    Jen & I have come to a mutual agreement on the number 74 – it just works for us.
