when men get stressed out they have to find a way to relieve the stress. My husband also played video games and I felt alone a lot. But I didn't nag him about it cuz I wanted him to be happy. Find a way for you and him to bond without yelling at him. Like see if he want to play video games with you or maybe something more intimate might work. He will get used to doing more things with you and later find out that he enjoys hanging around you more. Its very normal for that so dont' be upset about it guys find it hard especially with a kid. Be patient and let him do it he will come around. As far as helping around the house just ask him nicely if he will do a couple of things to help you out. Most men cannot take a hint trust me I have been married for 7 years and my husband still cannot get the hint. Anyway good luck and if you love him some things are worth putting to the side and are not worth the fight.View Thread
