  • My husband did the same thing for a long time. ( years) Until one night i got pissed off enough and took a hammer to his computer mid raid. Lets just say i get my way now and he gets off when i say its time LOL .. Good luck it is a addiction.

  • Did he play games before you got married? If so then did you think he would change? People dont usually change and I know when you date they show a diff side of themselves blah blah. I would tell him that you need some attention sometimes. Maybe make a deal of spending say from 8pm-10pm together as a couple?

  • I hear this alot on CM about WoW. These men really need to choose the game or their life. I'm sorry you have to deal with this.

  • I am so glad my husband hates computer games, video games and the like. We don't even own any. Only thing he is addicted to is facebook, but then I'm addicted to Cafemom so it evens out.

  • I saw one mom say she started playing WoW herself so she would know exactly when it was appropriate for him to stop and do something. I suppose thats an option. But really he just needs to respect you and his responsibilites as a husband and father over the game.

  • How about you just go to college and focus your time on that and your children? That way you can leave and be independent soon enough?
    Gosh its dumb that any woman would have to leave over a game. ridiculous.
