Sigma from my view point there are two issues here.

#1 The physical size of the TV, distance for viewing, etc. issues. Much of this is personal and you can measure your room. I also would throw into this bucket screen height. Some of us wear bifocals - more specifically progressive lenses. Depending on the height above your seating, this may create an unexpected issue. (I would look at viewing in a store at the seating distance and angle - yes I would look silly sitting on the floor, but it is worth it to be sure before mounting to the wall.)

#2 This board is Home Theater. A TV that large will dominate the room whether it is on or off. It appears to me the room previously was dominated by the fireplace. Mrs. xSSMBB probably is likely reacting to the change of the room from whatever it was before to a Home Theater or Sportsbar (absent crowds & other ambiance.) If you are happy with the new room character fine. Others will not prefer the new arrangement.
