Help with the hubby!!!

My husband LOVES to play his video game. It's not so bad that he won't take care of our son but Every time i'm gone he plays. I will ask him to clean the house and I come home and the house is still a mess and he is sitting there playindg football games on the PS3. What can I do or am I just being a B****!!!!

  • You guys need to work together to make a "rule" about the game playing. Maybe tell him that he can set a timer and play for an hour. Then he has to do other stuff. Hopefully he sees it as a problem too and he needs to set some limits on himself (like we all do sometimes!)

  • That would piss me off too. My ex did that and I would just want to take one of the dirty plates from the sink and knock him in the head with it. I am so lucky my husband always puts the house and family before games. He stays home with the kids M,T,TR to save on child care expenses and he is so awesome about cleaning the house and only plays his games when the kids are napping or at night if he cant sleep and everyone else is asleep. I know how you feel though....

  • mine loves his games as well but never puts them first and i think he knows that if he did i would break them i agree with pp just take it and hide it or if that wont work just take the power cord or hide the games

  • I just went through this with my hubby. We talked it out, he was on it constantly he said it was a mindless way to break away from stress. I didn't nag him about it for a week and he doesn't try to justify or ignore the family over it anymore. Sometimes men just need a break too, is there something he may be going through that he needs a little escape from?
