I found this site today and started reading the forums. I noticed that most posts are women talking about men but at my place it is the other way around: My wife is the addict (in my eyes).
Its not only men playing there are women to and they can make it even harder than me.
My wife is playing WoW for 2 years now. We are married for almost 11 years now. We have 2 kids: 17 and 15. I have tried the following:
Crying, screaming, silence, walk away. At last I took of my wedding ring (03:30 AM) and placed it next to her keyboard. Than I told her we had 2 options: Counselling or a lawyer. She agreed to get counselling. We had 1 session and some deals where set:
1. She can play on Wednesday and Friday evening
2. I should not complain, sigh if she plays on that days.
Well that lasted for 2 whole weeks. Yesterday (Tuesday) she decided she wanted to play. I left the room, went upstairs and started reading a book, angry. Just after 10 o'clock she came up and asked me if I was mad at her. I told her yes. Than she asked me to come down. I denied. I stayed and finished my book.
This morning we did not speak. I kissed her goodbye and left for work. I am at the point where I don't really care any more. She is in denial and I can't get through. I was hoping the first session would open her eyes a bit but I was wrong (again). Maybe we have another change next Monday when we have another session but I don't know if she will be home when I get there. She is blaming me. I restrain her, she needs time alone (she is a housewife and I work 50 hours a week), she has all kind of reasons why she should play and she tells me I should shut up. I am really desperate. Should I block the WoW ports on the firewall? I know we will have a hell of a fight over it and I don't think I can take it.
