He's always been a gamer. Fine, whatever, but he comes home from work, gives our daughter a hug and a couple minutes of his time (all but ignoring me), and gets on the computer to play. I'm lucky if I get him off of there in time for dinner, and then he's right back on. I do bedtime EVERY night, all naps and baths. I teach a childbirth education class and every time I leave for it, he's playing and every time I come home he's playing, leaving our daughter to fend for herself. I asked him to make a point to telling me hello and giving me a kiss when he comes home and I have to ask for it still.
I got upset this morning and he just kept playing for another 30 minutes. We got literally 15 minutes of his time before he had to go to work, and we were all up 3 hrs before he had to go. He apologized for making me upset and I said that I want him to be sorry for not spending tme with us, not for making me upset. CONT

I don't know about them not changing. It took my husband nearly 10 years of us being together and him doing them same thing to finally grow up and see what he had in front of him. Granted we had a huge unrelated fight Jan. of this year that has brought us closer. But I had told him some stuff that made him understand what I was wanting from him and what he was doing that was causing harm to the relationship. Of course it could be that I just gave up and started to do my own thing and then when he wanted to spend time I didn't so now he wants it all the time, cuz he knows that I'm not going to be there when He wants my attention. See what I am saying? He would ignore me and the kids until he wanted to have something to do with us and I was all to willing to go along. Until I stopped, is when he changed.
