Half a century ago people would’ve never believed that video games could be a reason for divorce. But times are different, people have changed, and now there are enough stories about it. Some couples have claimed that the reason for the downfall of the marriage is one spouse’s addiction to games.
One might think that the addiction to video games is entirely harmless. That is compared to other worse addictions. But it is worth noting that even video game addiction has been categorized as an impulse control disorder.
As harmless as the intention is, video gamers do run the risk of divorce given certain circumstances. You may be surprised to hear that it is not the time spent playing video games that is the problem. But the fact that the addicted gamer spouse will often replace real human interaction with video games. Thus distancing themselves from the other spouse causing the marriage to fall apart. A marriage is meant for two people. When one doesn’t contribute enough, problems do occur.
Studies have also shown another interesting result. Note the words “one spouse’s” in the first paragraph of this article. The couples who play video games together do not seem to have the problems mentioned above in their lives. After all, this could be the answer to all the gamer spouses out there. Involving your spouse in playing video games could help save your marriage.
