  1. That is on them for not making dinner for the other half or to help out housework or a week holiday and even a date night.
    I’ve been gaming since I was 5 maybe 6 god knows how old I was. Met my wonderful wife in 2005 (when I was 18) bought a house and got married in 2016. We have been together for 13 years and I still game… and so does she xD but we do compromise when we can.
    Like the ads says all over the place… when the fun stops. STOP!
    Saying that I do agree it is an addiction not just Fortnight, just all type of gaming… depend on how many hours you put in a week! My wife knows I love gaming before we tied the knot! Happy gaming man right there :)
