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.
Second Life was created in 2003 and allows players to use avatars to talk to each other, and generally socialise.
Those who pay a fee can own land in the virtual world and can trade like in the real world.
It's believed to be one of the first - if not the first time - Second Life has been cited in a divorce case.
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.

man 51 with a 33 year old wife, shouldn't have gave it up.
Although if he was addicted to porn that might say something about her.
