"My husband swears he is not addicted to computer gaming, yet, he is online practically every night. We have been together for a little over two years, married now for 10 months. He has stayed up till 6 in the morning sometimes gaming. He chats with people in the game. It makes me feel so alone. How can I stand his laughing at the online chatting he is doing? He told me last night, after we had another battle about his gaming, that "you knew I was a gamer when you married me and I will not give it up". I tried to be calm. I feel like my heart is breaking, how could he love me, but want to be online instead of spending time with me. I love my husband and want our marriage to work, but I am scared now. I feel like I am alone in the house and he is online gaming. He says the online games are only good if they are multiple online players for him to play with. He wants me to play online too, thinking that if I became interested in the game that would stop my Nagging. How can I do this when I feel so resentful of the game? It is like it is his mistress. We have been trying to have a baby. I tried to explain to him that he would have to spend quality time with a child if he wants to be a good dad. His response was "our kid is going to be a gamer too". I could have become more upset, but I told him that maybe our child might like doing other things instead. I want to become a mother. At this point, I am afraid that I will be a single parent. Not by choice, but by his neglect of family. He is in denial of his obsessive online playing. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I wish I could be thankful. I just feel so sad."
