COD Gaming-Help! I'm afraid I will hurt our relationship!
For mamas with SOs who are gamers, how has your family come to an agreement about how much gaming is appropriate? This has been a disagreement between my SO and I for awhile, but especially since the birth of our five-month old son. The current trend is that he will get home from work around 4:40, and every other day will play COD. On the days he plays he will come home and say, "hi." Eat an apple and then go play. He doesn't get off for dinner (I bring it in to him). Then he gets off around 10:00 to go to bed, while I am stuck staying up with ds and getting up throughout the night.
We originally had agreed that he would not play on the weekends, which he only sticks to if we actually go out and do something, but if we stay at home he jumps on the Xbox. Whenever I talk to him about it and how I feel (that he should spend more time with his family than he does playing his bachelor "friends" whom he has never actually met), he says that it is not a normal relationship for people to spend all their time together. I do agree that people need their space and separate activities....but is it "normal" to only spend every other night with your family? Help me out mamas, do you think that my expectations are out of line? I am afraid that this disagreement will become a major wedge in our relationship if we don't work it out.
