You're probably right that it's representative of something bigger, though.
I meant to say that some time ago she was annoyed with you because you spent too much time playing video games.

How ridiculous! I enjoy playing with my phone but I know not to do that when I am spending time with my husband. He isn't afraid to demand that I put my phone away when I forget.

My wife and I finally had the go round about her phone this weekend. She's not into gaming on it, but once you take time out for necessities like sleeping and work, she quite literally can't go 10 minutes without checking Facebook. The only exception to that is when we are having sex, but as soon as we are done, she is right back on it.

To the bolded above, for myself and I suspect many others, the whole "when I forget" is where the problem is. It is not a good feeling at all to know that something else can make our spouses forget us. Knowing that, given the choice, our spouses would rather spend time on their phone than with us. Sure, the phone can be taken away, deactivated, parental controls put on it, but in a partnership of equals, one should not have to treat the other like a child. They are grown adults who make their own decisions, and it is hurtful when they decide that their phone is more important.

Re: I Seriously Want to Smash Her Stupid Phone

I'll admit, I've also had issues being too addicted or distracted by my phone or ipad. I've been wondering if there's a way to QUIT Cold turkey. Sometimes I also leave my phone at home

Re: I Seriously Want to Smash Her Stupid Phone

This reminds me of me, only I don't do the phone at dinner or meals, I don't typically go on it for more than 20-30 minutes at a time unless I am in the bath or something, and I am trying to fill my time with anything I can because my husband ignores me for actual video games.

So my question is, have you suggested doing fun things with her? Board games, does she take it on date nights? Etc.?

Re: I Seriously Want to Smash Her Stupid Phone

Oh no that is awful. Maybe she needs to put the phone away after a certain time.

Re: I Seriously Want to Smash Her Stupid Phone

I feel ya. We both work from home, and are co-owners of a company, in addition to H being a VP of a large company. We are ALWAYS connected. We CANNOT wait to retire and go off the grid. We never get a day off. He even had to work on our wedding day. It is all so absurd and wrong! We are ridiculous, as are our children. It is epidemic!

Ciao,

Had a feeling @jimrich would be the last poster on this thread.

Thanks to him or her I now check the thread dates so I don't waste my time posting on zombie threads.

Is there a rule against this sort of thing?

Re: I Seriously Want to Smash Her Stupid Phone

This is the very reason I hate technology. Even at work people would rather e-mail then talk to you in person. I should have been born in the 40's. I seriously would have like life better then. Just think, life without computers or damned cell phones. That would be great.
