My wife is a game person. She loves all sorts of games and absolutely loves it whenever she gets to play them. Unfortunately, I'm not much of a game person at all. It's not that I don't like to play games, it's just that I'd rather be doing other things. Typically, I would much rather sit around with a group of people and talk about nothing than play a game. I wouldn't go as far to say that this has been a point of "tension" in our marriage, but it is something my wife always wishes I would want to do more.
Recently we've been hanging out with a couple who really enjoys playing games, so naturally we've been playing games more often. Since we've been on this game-kick for several weeks now, I've noticed something strange: I'm actually enjoying playing these games more and more. I've even found that I want to play more games.
Though husbands and wives will never have the exact same interests, it may surprise you how her interests can become your interests if you give yourself to learning about them and participating in them. I've seen this true in wives over and over, but husbands seem to have trouble wanting to make the effort. It's not that we can't because you were very interested in her hobbies when you were dating. Unfortunately we tend to get lazier and selfish as the married years march on. Don't let that happen!
What are some interests your wife has that she would love for you to be more involved in?
