OK, he sopunds like a painn in the neck, but this isn't quite technically a human rights abuse. Apparently you feel unable to stand up to him, and so do your two large sons. If he's been used to bullying everyone and getting away with it, he will assume this is ultimately OK for you. Try to talk him into marriage counselling, and otherwise, stand up for yourselves, by majority vote, if necessary. And but a second TV, so he can watch what he likes ALONE, while the rest of you behave normally and watch what you want
