POLL: Online; not on her

Monday, July 19, 2010 - 12:00 AM

A reader writes... Q: I am a happily married woman except for one thing: My husband is addicted to the Internet. He’s a good man and provider, and a wonderful father, but he’d rather be online than anything. On a typical Saturday, the first thing he does is go online. Sometimes he’s on the computer all day. I’ve gotten up in the wee hours to find him online reading or watching videos. He’s more interested in that than in making love. I’m pretty sure he’s not talking with another woman — I’ve done some checking. Sometimes I get so jealous of his relationship with the computer I feel like putting my foot through his monitor. Any advice?

POLL: What should se do about her Net-addicted hubby?
 
9% (109) Good gosh, the man works hard. Give him some space.
 
19% (220) Get a laptop and discover the 21st century
 
7% (90) Start a Web site. That might get her attention
 
4% (55) Leave him. He'll never leave his mouse.
 
58% (661) He's on the Web because he's not getting something he needs. Find out what it is and give it to him.
