Dear Crucial Skills,
My husband spends an average of five hours a day playing video games and surfing the internet. I have attempted to confront him about the amount of time he spends on the internet and the effect it is having on our marriage, our children, and on himself. His response to my comments is, “I know I have a problem, but it’s a problem I’m not ready to deal with yet.”
How can I best address this issue without resorting to divorce or separation? I am tired of trying to “deal with it” until he is ready.
