Wife Leaves Game-Addicted Husband Who Spends 25 Hours a Week Playing... Second Life

No, you didn't just wake up from a bad dream of the future and find yourself safely back in 2006. It's still 2012, and an Australian man who still plays Second Life has seen it cost him his marriage.

The 51 year-old man, who "cannot be named for legal reasons", saw his 33 year-old wife up and leave when she grew sick of his 25 hour-a-week Second Life habit. His online porn addiction wasn't helping, either.

Australia's Federal Magistrate's Court has awarded the wife custody of the couple's two children.


Not that I want to judge someone's life purely on the excerpts of court transcripts printed in the media, but... yeah, if in 2012 your man is playing Second Life at all, let alone for that amount of time, it's probably a good time to go.
