Because I have school and work, I don't see her much during the week. We don't live together. So I try to play as much as I can while keeping up with school, then if she works on the weekend then thats more Halo time for me.
I usually play at night after wife and kid are asleep.
This. If I'm gonna play with friends online for an evening, I schedule that at least a few days in advance, and if I'm gonna play in person with people, that gets scheduled a month+ in advance. --- i7-2600k @ 4.8 Ghz | 2x MSI 7970 Lightning @ 1200/1800 | 8 GB DDR3-1600 RAM Currently Playing: Halo 4, Sleeping Dogs || GT: The Ownage
Any good relationship is founded on the fact you love each other, not love what you hope they could be. If you entered a relationship when your partner had full knowledge gaming was your primary hobby, there shouldn't really be a problem. If your altering your own lifestyle to appeal to your partner there's something wrong, unless she too is altering her own life to appeal to you. --- If you have a problem with potheads, throw your computer out the window right now. Why should you be able leech off the creativity of those you condemn?
My Wife doesn't mind I play Videogames as long as I do it while she's busy doing something, like watching her "Novelas", playing Facebook games and just being on her laptop in general, and don't do it so often as to ignore her or my obligations, lol. She plays xbox too but FPS she says are too complicated and hard to control. My 3 kids on the other hand is a lot trickier as they all hurdle around the TV when they see me start the XBOX. I usually play after they go to bed or when they doing their homework or playing their Wii. As long as they are all busy or asleep, It's Halo time! :D --- GT=Tito2283 - "Stop it!

Wife and kid here. I play mostly at night, after 9. I also try to fit some time in on the weekends. Should have some more time since winter is coming and outside hobbies and yard work are winding down.
