  • NO. I'm lucky, The DH has no interest.. but my 15 year old makes up for it. Oh dear... I'm making a future CM-vent post for some unfortunate gal who marries him.

  • LOL I get that way sometimes but most of the time we play together once the kiddos are in bed =)

  • i used to get upset when my husband would disappear to his man cave so he can get on the xbox ....but eventually i just found ways to occupy myself when he's playing which usually only lasts up to 45 min.

  • No, he plays for a little while with our older kids after the little ones go to bed, but he has figured out the advantage of coming to bed when I do! ;)

  • No, but I think every guy has a hobby that can take too much of his time. Have you talked to him about how much time he spends on there?

  • One of the many reasons I'm getting out of my 2 yr relationship! His violence in the game has taken to being verbal abuse with me and the kids. We are leaving in less than a week!

  • I HATE the video games. I agree with you L0vingMy3Girls!! I talk about throwing it out the window, giving it to a homeless person, and smashing it with a hammer on a weekly basis!
    As for you momof3xthefun... i too feel like my marriage is gone, due to video games being one of the problems!!

  • LOL. I just bought him a new XBOX... hes gotten smart though, he only plays at night (kids are sleeping) and is now trying to get me hooked on it... but its too complex for me. LOL. What happened to just 2D a few buttons. :)
