Great article...my wife and I have an understanding. She knows thats my down time from being a very hard worker. Kids (I have two) make it even more challenging.

Great article - I have to say I have been a gamer for most all of my life and married for 10 years - I have been able to find a perfect woman that falls asleep nightly by 11pm - even on weekends - and am able to get my gaming on regularly for the most part for all of these years.

Now, there are obvious exceptions:
> Nights we are up watching TV shows from the DVR, or movies -
> We have 2 kids (4 and 2 yrs old) so, I have to make time for them, but fortunately they go to sleep by 10pm... or my son sits next to me and plays his DS, so it's a win/win there.

All that, and 4 hours of sleep or so nightly....

As a 13 year vet of the marriage game (with 3 kids), I can say that is does get better. You eventually come to an understanding and you pretty much learn the when and how of your "game time." She is NEVER gonna be interested in SPORTS GAMING. My daughters aren't either. But the ultimate gaming pill for women of all ages.....VIVA PINATA. It's the female Madden! LOL.

I'm very fortunate that my wife is an avid gamer and tech/gadget geek. So she actually encourages me to play games, and it's what we do together for 'down time' after work and on weekends.

In fact, she even has her own 360 and LCD tv w/headphones, and we game on two separate sets right next to each other :^)

For sports gaming, she actually stayed up with me till 1:30 am last night helping me scout for my NFL draft in HC 09! She loved it, and it's not unusual on a night she's restless to ask me to play football or any other game to help her go to sleep to. LOL

Lucky in Memphis,
Dan

For the majority of guys what ever it is you like, be it sports gaming or whatever, be prepared to give it up. Its not that they dislike video games in particular they just don't like your attention to be somewhere else for such a large chunk of time. Women aren't just jealous of other women they are jealous of everything.

...You forgot that when she's "ready" it's time to hit the start button and make time for the other "games"...
