My wife does not like when i am playing poker online ... sometimes she even turn the pc off so i lose connetion ... it's not that i am playing hours and hours or even lose a lot of money ... she just hate cardgames and my child is not allowed to take a look at a game when i am playing ... so most of the times i play now when she is not at home or when she is sleeping ... that's the only opportunity that i have to play without being made nervous over her reactions ...

Maybe You should try to convince her that poker is not only gamble and luck. Fighting her will get you nowhere. Mine gf was against it too at start but when I showed her a couple of moves on several occasions it made her believe that it is really at least half a game of skill. Try that maybe it will work but if she is that orthodox in her beliefs maybe it won`t have a chance to hit the right spot.

SPREMNI !!

What do you prefer in your life, poker or your relationship? Doesn't sound like you have the setup there to warrant both. Religious wife and a child :/ Sounds like you have a decision to make.

I'd take poker anytime lol but don't listen to me, I've had my fill of womens bs in my time.

tell her to f**k off, then explain to her that her place is in the kitchen when shes not tending to the children, and her mouth would be much better off performing other duties other than talking lol. just kidding.

Only in Utopia it's possible to have a wife that doesn't care about you playing poker. They just hate when they don't get our attention. Get yourself a laptop and wireless connection, pretend like you're having a stomach ache and you can play for hours on end in the bathroom. Maybe download a sound sample of huge nasty fart and play it once in awhile on the laptop to add to the authenticity Tongue

I had similiar problem with my girlfriend... She was bad when i was playing but now she doesn't care anymore... I did like Gagamon said. I bought her a very nice gift with the money i have won so now she knows i am not loosing money there and i make some nice profit from it Smile That worked really fine. Now she also plays sometimes... lol

pulling out the plug in the middle of poker game is grounds for a severe beating, lol, just quoteing a muslim cleric who"s making headlines over here at the moment. acording to him, a women is doing very well if she doesnt get a beating on any given day, he"s a tad extreme, i wonder what he"d do in this situation ??
