  • My husband is a gamer, I knew this before I married him. However, he always has time for me and our 2 boys, I have no complaints with his gaming hobby.

  • If it's something that has to be played online, turn the damn modem off! Maybe call your cable company and ask if there is a way to set times up so it's only turned on at certain times. Our local cable office does this. Tell him if he wants to act like a child, he will be treated like one. Start putting a password on the computer and only set times when he is "allowed" to be on there. If you don't want to go that route, leave and tell him you are tired of competing with a game so you give up. If he is worth being with, he will come to his senses.

  • I'm in a long distance relationship, and yes he plays wow. No he doesn't have time for us even being that far from here. He's 500 miles away! All I would like is a phone call a day, and I'm doing good if I get one a week! When we got together he was just begining to play and I seen it as a way for him to relieve stress, but now I see it as another woman! GRRRR! He plays EVERY hour he's not working. He gets so involved in the game, that he doesn't answer his cell. And if he does answer his cell, he says something to the effect of "I'm in the middle of a battle can I call you back in a few hours?" If you say yes, then you may or may not hear from him in the next day or so! It's gotten sooo bad that I'm considering telling him to choose the relationship or the game! Sorry to vent on your vent, but you ARE NOT alone!!

  • My husband was a gamer before we had our son. Then it's like a light went off and his priorities were changed. I think you need to sit down and have a serious conversation about the way this is making you feel. If you have expressed your feelings and opinions and he still doesn't change, I say it's time to give him a wake up call. Take your child/children and go to a friend's house or a family member's house for a few days. Tell him that you need some time to think about what you really want. Explain to him it's because of his gaming habits. It's one thing to play every now and then but it's another to emotionally abandon your family for it.  If he doesn't have a wake up call and realize his family is more important, he isn't worth it anyway.

  • I have no problem with this game, nor did my relationship end because of it. I actually enjoy playing but the only time I play is after I apply for jobs and have my daughter in bed. I refuse to play while she is awake, or until I have applied to at least 2-3 job posting a day. I use it as a treat not a hobby. I need time to relax but I can't go out and I don't have money to go out and buy whatever to rent movies and such. my account has been paid for by someone else so I might as well use it.
