So I have been married for a little over a year now to my husband. Throughout our relationship he has always been a gamer, but over the last few weeks and months I am starting to be more and more concerned about his gaming habits. He has been spending less and less time with me and spending the that time gaming instead. I have tried to have several conversations about how I am feeling and that I need him to show me more love and affection but it seems to jsut go in one ear and out the other because I don't see any improvement. A few days ago he told me that he wants more freedom and that he doesn't want to feel judged for the choices he makes. He wants to drink more and smoke if he so chooses and he told me he was done with God, which is a huge deal for me because I am very religious and dont want to see my husband go down a bad path. I don't know if these kind of things are commonly associated with gaming addiction but I don't know how to deal with it. His parents think he is addicted and that the only way he will change is if I give him ultimatum. Either its me or the games and freedom he wants. I am fully prepared to give him this ultimatum and follow through no matter what he decides. I believe that he will tell me he doesnt want me to leave and will stop for awhile but theres no saying when he will start again and if he will get addicted again. I just dont know what ot do if he doesn't stop and things dont get better because I cannot live this way. Its not fair to me or him because I feel like I get so upset that I deprive him of love when he does make time for it. Anyways, thoughts?
