From The Ancient Gaming Noob, about how gaming works when you are married:
Look, I play MMOs. Anything with a pause button is like ice cream and cake in my marriage.
So true. True story from me: my wife once complained about seeing a line on our credit card for a new computer game I had bought. After the initial “I can’t believe you spent money on another stupid game” lecture, I said “But honey, it has a pause button.” And she said “Oh!” And that was the end of the discussion.
