To be a respectable gamer, you're going to have to dedicate some time to the art, and maybe even most of your life will be consumed if you want to play at a world-class level. But what if you want to also be married to a comely significant other at the same time? It is possible to be have one and the other, but for it to work you're going to have to get your mate involved in a few games, too.
Denizens of gaming site Destructoid also suggest controlling your hobby, and knowing what your true priorities are. So play together on screen and in the bedroom, and practice moderation with the screen part of that equation, and then maybe this'll be the best Valentine's Day ever. A shortcut? Get a Wii. Any other tips, commenters?
