According to a post in dailymail, World of Warcraft has impacted more marriages than you think. This massive multiplayer online role playing game has shifted in between couples and is now known as the new marriage ender. More and more complaints are being filed by wives of these gamers who claim that their husbands spend a huge amount of time playing video games causing an end to their what once was a beautiful game-free marriage.
Dailymail quotes that this percentage of gaming addiction rather than wife addiction has risen by 5 per cent a year ago, which currently now is at 15 per cent, who cant believe their husbands would rather spend time with their game than their wives. This study was performed by Divorce Online.
The two main marriage wreckers are now known notoriously as World of Warcraft which allows their partners to create a mystical character in an online fantasy world, and Call of Duty, a game situated deep within battles and war zones.
The study which was carried out by Divorce Online’s managing director Mark Keenan stated that they began the research after noticing World of Warcraft was frequently cited by the unhappy wives. They said they expected the number to be even higher as a consequence of people staying indoors due to the recession and World of Warcraft is also known to be an escape portal into a mystical world by unsatisfying relationships.
An unhappy wife, Jessica Ellis, 24 from London quotes that ‘He was addicted to World of Warcraft but played other games now and then. The amount he was playing gradually increased until I could not take it any more.
“When it became serious he was playing up to eight hours a day. I was constantly trying to get him to cut back but he didn’t think he had a problem until I told him I wanted to leave. But by that time it was too late.”
In our current world, addiction to almost anything is possible and like all addictions, are preventable and curable. This research was carried out due to the increasing petitions of World of Warcraft being the divorce reason. If you are reading this article, lets hope you neither of you have crossed the line.
