  • No, thank God..but I know a few women whose husbands do. My hubby would have major problems if he played them too much.

  • My DH plays Xbox360, but only on his free time, like when I'm playing on the computer, or at night when our son is in bed, or when he is the only one home. He used to play it ALL OF THE TIME but he has cut back a lot!

  • Yes only after he gets off work at night and the house is cleaned up from dinner and our daughter and our daughter is in bed. If I want his time and attention I tell him to get off his game or I will have his online service canceled as I am the one who pays for it. I have never done it but he knows I will if it starts interfering with our time and our family time.

  • Sometimes those things have problems with the wires. Tell her to check and see if one of the pins are loose in the connectors. *wink*

    I would get divorced over this. This is happening to a lot of women.
    Ask if thier vows contained, "And you shall sit by his side twiddling your thumbs for hours while your husband throws away his precious life time."
    Sometimes women have to be stronger then the men.

  • no, thank God!! i don't think he plays at all because he does not have the time. you know, he never even liked video games as a kid so maybe thats why too.

  • My husband does not play video games, but if he did, I would be trying to make myself and my company to be much more exciting than some silly game.

    Answer by NannyB. at 11:27 AM on Apr. 27, 2009

  • Nope. My husband doesn't play video games at all. He barely gets time with his family anyway, so I would be beyond pissed if he spent all of his time playing some stupid game.

  • Yes, hub and I both play video games, but it's never excessive. I find that when one person plays videos games to the point that your brother does that there are problems in the relationship
