I am having a hard time with my husband and his use of time. He will wake up in the morning and play his video games for 1 -3 hours. Then again at night for a couple of hours. He does ask me at night if he can play for a little bit.
He says that it is a good way for him to vent and relax after work. It gives him some time to himself. I agree that it is okay that he needs some time to himself. The problem is that I get frustrated because I feel like he just plays games all the time and could all day if I didn't get upset or bug him to help me with something. I try to be easy to work with but I get so frustrated.
So does anyone have any ideas on how you can get you husband motivated to help around the house more? Does anyone else have problem getting a balance of spouse playing games and helping around the house? Do they grow out of video game mode?
If you have any suggestions or ideas on what you have done I would love to hear about it.
