Husband gamer?

Okay I don't mind the occasional one or two hours a day gaming, but all day every day off?? and every night when he's home from work?? I CANNOT do it :/ I hate it i hate it! I have no fucking help with our one year old, I have no fucking help with the house work. He works 8 hours a day 5 days a week. He made me quit my job so he wouldnt have to watch our kid while I worked, which my mom watched him but made my husband help (we live with my mom). He won't be social in the house, he won't have sex with me if he has a bad match (which is often) and he gets pissed when I ask him to watch our son so I can cook/shower/clean. I don't know what to do and it makes me lash out at others when I'm mad at him and I hate being so mad all the damn time. help?

Bash the gaming console in with a hammer? Run over it? Snap the games in half?

Seriously, I wouldn't put up with that shit. Dh plays video games but not like that. That's just crazy..i'm sorry. :/

My husband was like that right after our first was born. I told him if I had wanted to be a single mom, I never would have gotten married. That straightened him out. Almost 5 years later, and he's a lot better about only gaming while the kids are sleeping. And, if he decides he wants to play something in the middle of the day while they're awake, he'll ask if I mind....which, I usually don't because he's good about helping with the kids.

i told him his dad told me to put a few rounds of buckshot through it and he was seethingly pissed. I went to touch his chest, ya know try to calm him down, and my fingers permanately screwed up because of it. i think hes cheating again :/ he was doing so great recently and now BAM back to how it was before :(

Sounds like the game needs to go or he does one. We're not gamers, in our house, if we have time for gaming we have time for parenting. We're no longer teenagers.
