HUSBAND UPSET BECAUSE WIFE GIVING BIRTH & HE CANNOT PLAY GAME

My husband plays an online game called World of Warcraft (WoW) and he was upset that our upcoming newborn’s delivery is conflicting with his raid schedule.

I’ve never felt so hurt.

I’ve allowed him to play the game for as long as we’ve been in our 8 year relationship. It’s only the past 3 years that he’s come to bed extremely late.

He talks about the game all the time and I let him indulge in his info-dumping.

I’m set to go to the hospital on Monday as I might be close to delivering our first child. He said that his raid with his guild is on Tuesday and Thursday and he’s fighting the final boss of mythic and this might be his only chance to do it. The baby might be delivered next week.

I don’t know how I feel about this or how to process this. I’m so afraid he will choose the game over us.

Netizens’ comments

  • Dafuq? As a former WoW junkie I can say that this is the exact point where he needs to seek help for his addiction. Seriously, when you hit parenthood if you want to play games they need a pause button. So you can go back to it when things have been taken care of.
  • You need to talk to him about the fact that for the next six months, he won’t have time or energy to touch that computer. How does he plan to integrate fatherhood into his schedule?
  • This was how my first marriage ended. My husband chose raiding over attending the celebration my family held for me when I completed my masters degree.
    I am so sorry you’re going through this. Video game addiction is very real, and very painful for those of us struggling with a family member deep in the depths of it, especially because it’s frequently unrecognized.
    I hear my ex husband no longer plays. I sincerely hope your husband can recognize that this is out of control and become the partner and father you and your child deserve.
