AFK needs to take a hard long look at his marriage. I doubt that this is the only area that she is so unyielding in and maybe it might be best if he cut his losses and moved on.

Without knowing all the information, one should NEVER recommend divorce. It's not something to be taken lightly or casually. This isn't high school, a marriage is more than just a boyfriend and girlfriend. You don't just tell people to cut and run on a whim.

I concur, and I'm coming at this from a female perspective. Run, don't walk. Sorry. If she's that controlling in one area, I'm sure there's more, and that's not healthy. I'm sure the controlling of WoW time is only a symptom of a larger problem in the marriage that needs to be addressed.If it's an otherwise happy marriage, and this control thing is just a fluke, then I'd advise demanding playtime equal to whatever leisure time the wife spends on her hobbies and interests, and if she HAS no hobbies or interests (I've seen this, and find it extremely pathetic), make her take up some so she has something to do with her time other than control her husband's.

I vote for marriage counseling. That way, they can get to the root of issues and find out if they're solvable or not.

Is she unyielding? Or did they already agree on some WoW playtime and he abused it? We just don't know.Maybe she is as unreasonable as the wife in the first letter we received about this seemed to be. Or maybe he is as irresponsible at home as he is at work and his WoW gaming is the scapegoat.Regardless, WoW is never the problem. It is usually a nonselfsufficient partner or an addicted gamer or some other underlying situation. If he doesn't tackle the real issue, even if he does leave her, he is bound to repeat the same mistakes in his next relationship.

Boy, the Drama Mamas love putting opinions and throats together, in a kind of shoving motion. Hm. You can't be seriously spouting "we just don't know" as often as you have through this whole article/comments without considering: Maybe he's allowed to play at work? Some jobs are a lot of sitting until someone comes up. And sometimes even, if you work for a reasonable person who understands that you can't do anything when there's nothing to do (not a Drama Mama), you can occupy yourelf!

@GeminiThat's why I said he needed to take a look at his marriage instead of yelling "DIVORCE THE B*TCH!"To paraphrase Christopher Titus, you don't get a rebate at the end of your life just because you stayed with someone that made you miserable.
