Backstory: My husband and I have been together for 15 years. I'm 29, he's 31. He's always been a PC gamer and while it had always bothered me, I accepted it. He used to play TFC back in the 00's for about 4 hours, 5 times a week. That was before we had children. Diablo, StarCraft, and Left for Dead were some others since. Fast forward to the present and he is playing PubG about 7-10 hours a week. I know comparatively that may not seem like much to others, but we have an 18 month old and a moderately autistic 10 year old. These games cannot be paused. I'm absolutely exhausted and lonely. Our biggest argument is the gaming. I will admit that I am a fairly needy person due to childhood neglect. So my question is: how much gaming is fair? On weeknights we have only from 9-11pm for couple time. Weekends are random. As I said, our oldest has autism and needs constant monitoring. Husband keeps saying that it's my anxiety that's causing me to need him so much now. Even if that's true, why not give me the time I need during this period in life? It's a game. I'm a real human being... Tonight will be my third night staying in a hotel. And while I'm gone, he just continues to game.
