@ChocolateLime:  Time for a discussion. Maybe you guys can come to an agreement about what time during the evening can be for game time?  Yes, it sounds like something you do for a child, but hey if the shoe fits?! 😉

Ugh, sorry to hear that. I could never be or be with a gamer. I cannot imagine a bigger waste of time, money, and intellect. Maybe hide his iPad when he’s at work and not tell him where it is until he acts like a decent husband for an hour or two? 🙂

@ChocolateLime:  My bf loves to game as well and I hate it. Whats worse is that I’m the one who bought the stupid system in the first place lol. Facebook him a few little naughty messages…that should get his attention! lol

I’m totally guilty of being on my iPad all the time too, but you need to have a talk with him about priorities. Let him know that you two have to work like a team to make sure everything runs smoothly. Let him know you understand playing with his iPad is his “me time”, but let him know that it can’t come before chores or other household duties.

Just talk to him about it. He probably thinks that when you’re sitting on the couch together, and he’s on his iPad, that you’re spending time together, even if you aren’t talking. If that’s not how you see it, then you need to tell him as much.

I think you need to have a talk about it.  Just as games might be annoying to a non-gamer, getting nagged for gaming as a gamer is equally, if not more, annoying.  If you can set boundaries and limits of what is acceptable, you’ll both feel less resentment.  That being said, I think it’s difficult for gamers and non-gamers to be together (I’ve dumped plenty of guys for crappy dps), so communication is even more important.

I would talk to him.  I think that’s so sad that he would rather play a game then spend time with his baby.

@ChocolateLime:  Hobbies are fine and all but him leaving you to parent the baby all alone is completely unacceptable.  Definitely time for a serious discussion.

I’d be tempted to plop the baby in his lap (unfed, unchanged) and get lost in a good book, maybe during a bubble bath, to underscore the point.

Oh I have to admit that I had the same problem before, well maybe not as much as your husband as I do a lot of house work (actually I do more than my wife). I am not a hardcore gamer, I haven’t turned my playstation3 on for more than a year now, but I like spending some time with my iphone tho. You have to talk to him before it becomes an addiction, I was nearly addicted to my mobile, but after talking to my wife and after seriously thinking about it, I decided to use my mobile less and spend more time with her. I stopped playing tho kind of games (those that are very addictive)

@ChocolateLime:  I’m more concerned that he’s not helping with the baby (by the sound of it).

@ChocolateLime:  You really need to talk with him, let him know how you feel. What saved me from being addicted was my wife and also the fact that my game crashed and lost of the data, so I couldn’t bother restarting from zero again.
