Let’s Discuss – My spouse is a gamer & that’s a problem!


It’s always nice to hear from my readers. So, I decided to take the top research findings of 2012 to start a discussion.

Let’s get started with research finding #1. According to a Brigham Young University study, couples reported lower marital satisfaction when one spouse’s gaming interfered with bedtime routines. Seventy-five percent of gamers’ spouses wished their partners would put more effort into their marriages; however, when both spouses gamed, a majority reported greater satisfaction in their relationships.

So ar you, or your spouse a gamer?  How does it affect your marriage? Have you wanted to join your spouse in gaming, but he/she hasn’t taught you how to play?
