I'll admit it, I actually like video games. I like to play them. ALOT. However, I'm married, have two school-aged children, and also work a full-time job. In addition, I try to keep my Examiner account active (which has become a bit difficult lately, please accept my apologies for that). I also try to blog and write articles elsewhere too. So video games do get put to the side often. Often times, I'm putting video games aside to ensure my relationship with my wife stays healthy. However, there are ways that video games can actually help your relationship instead of causing damage to it. Video games can actually improve a strained relationship if you and your partner find a common interest. It may give you things to talk about or help encourage team building or friendly competition. So, this list is dedicated to the ways that video games can help your relationship.
