My wife is an MMO addict. I knew it before we were married, but I never saw how bad it was. Currently she spends between 6 and 12+ hours playing her game a day. We have 3 young kids and I have a full time job with plenty of overtime. While she does keep the kids fed and when prompted does keep the house from turning into a disaster area, I am not satisfied with how much time she spends playing online not including time just spent on the game forums and such. Now I need some help. Is spending 40-60 hours playing a game per week unreasonable even if you maintain most of your outside responsibilities? Is there any reasonable way for me to help this situation without being the bad guy? Does anyone have any personal examples that could be helpful? Are there any useful resources for this? (Yes I can google, but something that has helped someone else would be preferred to rolling the dice.) I know there are people out there who get fired from work or drop out of school because of their addiction, and although this is not one of those examples it is still frustrating. I would be much happier if my wife had goals and ambitions outside of her game which she actually strived for. Any input is appreciated! Thanks guys!
