I put my husband in the dog house for one night for this
I live in a foreign country and my family is thousands of kilometers away. I always worry about them. I guess it's even more worse now since my mum passed suddenly 2 years ago while I was here in this new country I call home.
My dad was in an accident. It could have been worse but he's getting better now. He ended up getting his foot run over and when I got off the phone to tell my husband he was playing a video game and as I was attempting to tell him the story, he literally kept playing the video game and he was so distracted. Couldn't even peel himself away from the video game for 2 minutes to listen to what happened to my dad. He only paused the game after he saw how upset I got and then he said to me well you first started out by saying "he's okay now but..," so he claims he thought it wasn't a story that needed his immediate attention. I was so shook by this lack of sympathy or remorse.
My husband has a gaming problem. If he starts gaming he goes into another world. I don't mind him having his time to do his own thing but I feel like his gaming is out of control.
If your wife or husband comes to you and days omg my dad was in an accident wouldn't that make someone naturally pay attention to ehAt their partner is saying. I was so hurt and shocked by his behaviour and lack of remorse. He went on to say that he texted my dad and he said he's fine so case closed.
I then made him sleep in the other room. This is first time this has happened. Did I overreact?
