Ha! Fantastic piece! I'm a 9-year veteran of the blessed institution myself, so this resonates. I was cagey enough at the outset to establish gaming as a non-negotiable activity, which helped a lot. However, keeping that agreement going takes lots of work. I too have found that framing it as "de-fragging" time works very well, as does being willing to carry on small-talk while playing. Kids need not be a deterrent--you just have to train them right. My daughter knows daddy games, and she just colors during that time :-).

Great piece, and well written.

I got married on May 15, 2008 and things really haven't changed. I suspect that if we ever decide to have kids things will change a lot, but for right now I still game alomst ever night.

Christian! Great article! I have been married for 1.5 yrs (plus a son and daughter) and have employed all of your 'Survival Keys'. I am glad someone has addressed the sports gamer obsession vs. real married life.

My gaming time has suffered tremendously. But I do have the opportunity every now and then. I rlly can't expect any major change here unless my son continues his infatuation with videogames! I hope so!

Again, great article!
