Multiple researches have shown that videogames can be a cause for divorce amongst married couples. A recent Japanese study surveyed 721 Japanese Women found that playing videogames was the fourth most cited reasons for leaving their spouses. Adultery, alcoholism, and overspending were also in the top four "grounds for divorce." The women found habits like "sleeping in until noon on the weekends" and "differing approaches to cleanliness," more tolerable than playing videogames.

Similarly, a year-old study conducted by Divorce Online found that 15 per cent of the women they surveyed cited that their husbands playing videogames was a reason why they opted for divorce. These women felt that their partners cared more about gaming than their relationship.
