My husband and I, both being huge gamers, saw marriage less as “Game over” and more of “Player two has arrived.”

@Hyperventilate:  +1, I love having my player 2 and my husband always says how lucky he is to have found a gamer girl.

@soonmrswhite: 4-6 hours is nothing, my husband and I have entire gaming weekends (I get all the house chores done before he gets home).

@soonmrswhite:  great idea! And it’s hilarious. I saw this and almost spit out my coffee lol. We have to schedule tv time…he gets 30 minutes and then I get 30 minutes. Its pretty much ridiculous lol. He would play all day if I let him.

I am not a huge fan of things like this. It just plays into the whole “woman wants to get married, has to drag her husband to the altar” thing. Also, is he supposed to be drunk?

 

Maybe I just don’t get it, or find it funny.

@sarals24:  I think it’s one of those “to each their own” type things.  I personally could never marry someone that wasn’t a gamer, but obviously not everyone feels that way.

Love it. Although not sure of the ‘game over’ part.

@housebee:  I mean, I think I would get it more if it were a hobby that both of you shared, and you were both playing, or something. But since the wife is literally dragging the husband…IDK, I just find it a little degrading.

@soonmrswhite: We’ll just have to agree to disagree on what’s funny and what’s not. I’m not offended by it, but I think it is a bit of an outdated joke (Like I said with the whole ball and chain thing.) But if your fiance likes it, then you’ve found something you both like.

My husband and I both play games all day long. When he has a free day off, we literally spend the entire day gaming. Not even exaggerating in the slightest. Our dishes still get done, our dinner still gets made, our leaves still get raked, our laundry gets done. To each their own.

@soonmrswhite:  I think it’s different if you have kids, because like you said, you are setting an example.  I think it’s far too easy for children to develop bad habits if they start playing something like CoD or HALO early, so much swearing in those games.  Fortunately, we’re older (33 and 38) and never having kids, so we can be total slackers on the weekend lol.

@sarals24:  I guess it’s just perspective, I always feel bad for the guy in those toppers (due to my personal experience in relationships with non-gamers), while other people may see it as degrading to the bride.  However, if the people in that relationship find it funny/amusing, I think it’s great that they can laugh at their differences.  It’s just about what works for each couple.

Ahaha, I saw this a while back. My fiance is not only a die-hard gamer but, as I’m sure is the same with a lot of you, a huge CoD fan. We often play together, and more often I drag him away from his game, haha. That’s what I saw it more as; ‘let’s get this wedding over with, we can play later!

I already have a cake topper in mind, but being a baker, I wouldn’t oppose to whipping up a grooms cake and sticking this on top for him and his buddies to laugh over.
