My wife and I have been married for 20 years and have three children. About a year and a half ago my wifes sister introduced her to WOW. Her time on the game has slowly progressed to the point were she comes home from work and gets on WOW almost immediatly and stays on it 4-5 hours until bed. On weekends she's on it from the time she wakes up until bed. I've taken over all domestic duties and caring for the children. She's played through our 10 yr old son's birthday, refused to go to sports events our sons are a part of. Just recently I confronted her about it. Her excuses: It relaxes me after a stressful day, I need friendships outside our marriage and work, I enjoy the challenge. It is not so much the game that she spends most of her time doing but chatting with others in her guild. Have I been denying her an outlet to have friends or am I in denial of her addiction? If so, how do I lovingly get her to see what I see.
