Quoting Rabbit™:" I think you're just jealous that your husband wouldn't ever come stand in your defense on BG. It's really ... [snip!] ... at hand. Now scamper along back to your fantastical and perfect little bubble before I find myself a needle and pop it. "
I just want to say, I think it's hilarious when random people come into a thread to create more drama. If any one of you bothered to actually read my original post that was directed at OP - I told her that she and her son deserved better. OP was CLEARLY not ok with her SO bringing a game console to the hotel while their child was in the NICU, and he even missed the birth of their child because of it. She also provided numerous examples of his lack of concern for her because he was too busy playing video games. I cannot for the life of me understand why anyone
would stand up for this boy. If you think that it's ok for your own relationship, great. In my OPINION, that is not a healthy relationship with healthy priorities. I absolutely would not be ok with my husband missing the birth of our child
because he was too busy playing video games or "paying bills", and I am certainly not the only person in this thread who holds the same belief. I addressed the OP, and Miss Jizz decided to address ME.
And by the way, I have never claimed to have a perfect relationship, but I do have a very
good one - one in which my husband and I fall more in love every day. I am not ashamed of that, I will not apologize for it, and you cannot "pop my bubble" because there is nothing you could possibly say that would make me or my husband love each other any less. Sorry.
As I said before, if think it's appropriate to put video games before life events such as births, illnesses, etc, then great. But those are not healthy priorities. If you want to attack me for that, go ahead. I feel great knowing that I am my husbands number one priority, in any situation.
And just so you know - my husband is not going to make a profile on babygaga so he can argue with a bunch of women who think it's appropriate for their SO's to put video games before the needs of their spouse and their children. However he would like me to say this: Those of you jumping all over me for having high standards for my relationship need to realize that there are men out there who will make you their first priority, and be there for you day or night, unconditionally - regardless of their hobbies. There is nothing wrong with video games in moderation, but when they become more important than the health, happiness and well being of your family, they are no longer a hobby, they are an obsession.
Now ladies - I hope you all have a nice weekend with your families. For those of you who don't believe that I'm going to Paris - people travel the world every day. Maybe you don't travel, I don't really care. My husband and I travel frequently, and we have had plans to spend this week in Paris, celebrating Valentines Day, for months. So whether you believe it or not, I don't really care because I know I will be spending the week in France, with the love of my life, and WITHOUT a video game console. Have a great night.
