So here's the thing i just finished reading another convo about a women complaining how her significant other always plays xbox and doesn't help with anything including the baby!! I would have commented on that string but it wasn't allowing any other comments! I did read a bunch of the other posts though, and im sorry i jsut have to say I DONT GET IT!! My husband plays xbox too, sometimes for hours, but on his own time, NOT when it interferes with time with his daughter and me!! He never plays when she's awake, usually his play time happens after she's down for the night or when he's home alone. And if he's home alone he almost always makes sure to get dishes or laundry or something else done so i can't say anything when i get home!! When he started to play the xbox every night, i made rules and he agreed!!!! Tues, Thurs and one night on the weekend!! No im not a crazy demanding wife, but why would i want to sit alone every night while he played xbox, I just dont understand why so many women are like "oh my husband wont help, he just plays on the computer" heeeeeeelllllllllllllllllllllloooooooooooooo just tell them whats what! They have a baby and a family and YOU, and these things are waaaaaay more important then any computer game!! They will only treat you how you let them!! Maybe if they don't see the important things going on outside his XBOX its time for you to reconsider what kind of man he is!!
