Not an online gamer, but a gamer

My story: my hubby and I will have been married for 5 years in May. We have two children who are both under 3 years. I knew he enjoyed video games before we got married, but didn't realize how bad it was. This week, he moved his electronics out of the house and into another building.... Hes been in the other building since 10am (other than 1hr for diner), it's currently 1:30am... He is in school for computer programming and was working on homework at least part of that time (I know because I checked).... He's addicted to sims, civilizations, flight simulators and the occasional xbox game.. The last 3 nights he's came home after the boys were already asleep, he doesn't play with them anymore. He mostly ignores me. I'm a Christian, so. Divorce is not an option. He has stopped before, for like a week. Ever since we first got married, I've asked him to not play more than a couple hours/day I realize he needs something to destress... Anyway... This is more of a vent than anything.... I've gotten to the point where I don't know what to do anymore, and I'm tired of him hurting our children....

I should also say, he has had

I should also say, he has had no job for 2 years... He just goes to school. He says that anything under $15/hr is to little to work for because he is not entry level. Therefore he wont get a job... I'd I get a job, I think it'll just enable him to stay at home and do nothing even more..

I am sorry that you feel so alone in your relationship. You are certainly not alone with this problem

Our welcome advice to spouses is here

I recommend you keep coming back to read the stories of other spouses.

We cannot change the gamer. We recommend you look after yourself and the kids and try to detach from his choices.

Hugs to you xx
