How can I get my husband to see that his video gaming is ruining our relationship?
I'm 23 years old and a mother of 4. My husband who is 24 and is a game addict. We have been together since we were 16. I also play video games but I'm not constantly wanting to play nor do I constantly play. I know my responsibilities come first. I've spoken to him over and over it doesn't seem to work or influence him, but I know he cares and loves us. I don't want the answers saying "oh just leave him it will never work out" I will ignore those. I love him so much and he's a great man, I just wish he didn't play games so much. The past week he has stayed up until 7 am playing on the computer. He also plays the xbox. He's lost many jobs because he stays up late and comes up with an excuse to call off. He always says he knows he has to take care of his family but his gaming seems to be more important sometimes. I've tried staying with family to make him see that I can't stand the constant gaming, he changes for a couple months then its right back to how it was. Thanks for any advice.
