After eighteen years my wife left her entire family and her life to move to Pennsylvania to be with a man she met online while playing Final Fantasy. We fought for several months last year over her addiction to the game. When she left me two weeks ago she said that I destroyed her last year. Why is it that her playing the game eighty to a hundred hours a week was okay, but my confronting her destroyed her. Now I am dealing with my seventeen year old son and his game playing. I refuse to sit idly by and watch it destroy him too. For the last year the only thing his mother and he ever talked about was Final Fantasy. I do not believe that it has the control on him that it did and does on her. Any advice on how to deal with his game playing would be greatly appreciated. It is really sad that she has been gone for two weeks and the only time she has called him is to tell him she got there and was working on setting up her computer to play the game. He has only played FF a couple of times since she left. She was there both times.
