I don't like to say this but don't listen to Lisa's advice on this one. Your story about playing WoW rather than looking for a job tells us that you have a problem that can't be solved by a present. Robin's advice about agreeing to a strict playtime routine is the only way I think you are going to manage it.I feel for you though. My wife stopped playing after our 2nd kid was born and has never returned I quit for all of WOTLK and have returned in Cata. I have tried to stick to a schedule. This means I can't raid 3-4 nights a week with my guild. Instead once a week go with the core raiders alts on an alt run, and fill in on occasions. This means I'm not likely to down rag anytime soon, but we can get through the rest of FLs (or previously BWD or BOT) in an evening. Ocassionally I log on an stay up too late running heroics, but generally I am fairly good balancing it. It takes a lot of work though. Were I single without kids I can easily see myself on most weeks nights and during the days on weekends, wanting to raid hardcore. In the end real life is more important, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try to enjoy the pleasures that WoW brings as well. If you can maintain the balance.
