  • Probably because his attentions on it and not on you... try getting into a game with him... it might help. Maybe he plays to much and you just feel bored.

  • my hubby doesn't play video games but i had a boyfriend that i lived with a while back who did and it drove me nuts because i was busting my ass and he was playing video games day in and day out. I think that if my hubby would i would destroy the games.

  • My husband is totally addicted to VG's. I hate it more then anything. He ignores everything and wastes his time playing. He puts off doing the things he's suppose to do and then he when he finally gets to it, he's running around all stressed yelling at everyone like it's our fault he's late. I get so angry sometimes, I've yelled at him to get his Axx up and help. Only that's never helped and only made matters worse. I'm fine with him playing if he wants to relax for an hour or two but all day and sometimes all night is just stupid and immature. He and I have had soo many fights over it and he admits he has an addiction and that he knows he overdoes it. But I don't know how to get him to stop and I do love him so leaving him isn't something I want to do. I think he needs counseling, but he'd never go.

    I'm sorry, I know this probably doesn't help but your not alone.

  • theaterlover i see the reason you hate the video games. i'm starting to think i have it good after your answer cause mine helps outs and he's good about doing it at a proper time. i think i feel like i get left out cause he rarely asks me to play with him. like he rather be doing that then just sit with me yet i go on cafe mom. i just really don't know. just wondered if i was alone in this. so far i am.

  • Just one more reason we do not allow video games in our house.
