Does your husband play video games or not?

I find it hard enough to deal with the tv watching, the internet surfing and now the iphone that goes into the bathroom- but if he was into video games too, I would pull my hair out and probably worse. Whenever I see other women talk about their dh playing video games it is one of the rare moments when I count my blessing!

Does your dh play them? What technology would you willing ban from your home if you could?

  • No I got lucky! He will every once and a while but only while the kids sleep and it's something we can play together.

  • We have only got computers... so, no. Not video games, just computer games.

    I'm okay with it --it gives me lots of time to putter around, write, or watch what I want on tv. When we only had a tv, I could watch what he wanted ('cause he cares, and I don't) or leave the room. Now I get the whole upstairs to myself

  • When ever he has free time, plus he plays on his work iPhone, watches tv, plays on the iPad, ive decided to choose my battles, and arguing about how he spends his free time, once the kids are in bed, was just one of those battles I wasnt going to fight.

  • Sort of but I am the one who spends like 2 hours on Donkey Kong Country! I am good but trying to get better at the game. So far no one has beaten me!

  • Yes, Dh plays video games on his days off, all day long!!! It drives me nuts, but I always think he could be doing a lot worse, so in a sense I am thankful that he does only play the video games.

  • Yep mine sure does! He loves his gaming systems. Mine doesnt use an iPhone, or anything like that. He has his computer and gaming systems and Im cool with that. He works alot of hours and if he wants down time then he can have as much as he wants. He knows I dont mind and wont mind as long as he doesnt say anything about my computer time or girl time.
