Oh those darn video games! I say that semi-joking, but in all seriousness, since before my husband and I were married, video games played a part (both good and bad) in our relationship. We’ve had our highs and lows, but my husband was able to see the impact his hobby had on us. I was fortunate that he wasn’t completely addicted, but he struggled to prioritize. But we both worked together and communicated and that helped more than anything.
