    Um, there are a few things I could say about that guy.
    1. Why is he playing WOW. He's married and has a job...

    He should be playing something else. *cough* Maybe if he had done that 30 minutes a day, his marriage would've lasted a few more months.

    I played WoW for a couple years. It was fun till I got to the high levels and it become so repetitive and boring that I had to quit. Raids seriously take a few hours, and to me they became insanely dull. I'm never doing another MMORPG ever again.

    WOW just seems dumb to me, it is like a drug. Also why play a video game and just have to spend hours doing something repetetive when you could be out meeting some ladies!

    I just don't see anything appealing for me with regard to MMORPGs, but I do see the appeal in video games, and have for the past 27 years (I'm almost 30).

    I didn't feel bad for either one of them though. It just made me laugh.

    I tried WoW for the sake of my one of my roomates, she's deep into this stuff. I got bored within a week...luckily there was a 30 day free trial.

    I can see how it would take up your life, it takes forever to do anything in that game.

    Personally I think that her comments are totally understandable.

    It's kind of her fault too. She can't keep her husband from playing computer games?

    There are women out there who make their husbands sit when they pee. That toilet seat isn't going to put itself down... not unless you buy one that does it. Then about 30% of marital disputes wouldn't really be disputes anymore. And what is marriage without arguing?

    If they had kids I could feel bad. Since they don't, I'll just laugh.

    To be fair, if you have a bunch of friends in real life and play WoW with them online, it can be a lot of fun. After awhile though it gets incredibly repetitive and you gradually have to spend more and more time on certain areas. Dungeons and Raids take up hours at a time, and if one person leaves, you can seriously screw up the mission of the other players. I just got tired of it and left.

    I might lol...nah!

    I play WoW a lot but only because I'm trying to keep from spending money by going out all the time. Trying to get the damn credit card paid off and done with.

    I don't get withdrawal or anything when I don't play lol.

    She is ridiculous. She knew that the game was set up to exploit people to invest more time and money into it, but bought it for her husband anyway. Way to go Nostradamus.

    Yeah, I kinda thought about that as well. If his gaming was such a problem for their marriage, she could have encrypted the computer so he couldn't get on, or cut off the internet connection, or throw the bloody computer out the window.

    She wasn't his mother, they were married for crying out loud. :huh:

    I don't get some of you criticizing her? I mean look at these quotes.

    "He would get home from work at 6:00, start playing at 6:30, and he'd play until three a.m. Weekends were worse -- it was from morning straight through until the middle of the night,"

    Jocelyn had been friends with her ex-husband Peter since the age of 13
    , but it took only nine months for her marriage to collapse.

    Jocelyn recalled one particular incident that was typical of Peter's habits. "I had set aside 30 minutes for us to watch a television show together, and he couldn't. He was stuck on a raid, and completely failed to understand why I was upset," she said.

    Peter's domestic duties also suffered. He stopped paying bills, she says, and refused to do his share of the housework.

    I mean this wasn't a case of her hating on videos games, it was a man devoting every waking hour, that wasn't spent at work, to playing a computer game and ignoring his wife and responsibilities as a partner in their marriage. Not to mention his financial responsibilities.

    And I was giving things she could have done besides divorcing him. She simply didn't pussyfoot around and wrote him off.

    But in the end, he was the dumbass for letting a video game run his life, although the title of the thread lead me to think that a divorce happened in WoW

    The only good thing to come out of WoW is the Leeroy Jenkins video. That was hilarious.

    Well she could have done those things, but he failed to see why him spending all his time on the game was a bad thing, and at the end of the day he was (supposedly) an adult, not her child. If he wasn't willing to put aside a videogame for the sake of his marriage than maybe they really didn't belong together in the first place.

    You're right she could have thrown it away, but that still would have been him being a useless tool and choosing a video game over his life. I bet the guy would have started playing at Cyber shops or something.

    Kind of a sad story really.
