'Questions?' photo (c) 2008, Valerie Everett - license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0/Every weekend I like to throw up a question someone sends in and let you readers have a go at it. Here’s an issue that many women have raised with me:

I really need at least eight hours sleep, so I try to go to bed by 10:30. My husband, though, likes to stay up late playing video games. Sometimes he doesn’t even notice if I announce I’m going to bed, even if I try to do it sexy-like. He doesn’t get the hint, or else he says, “I’ll be up soon”, but he doesn’t come up to bed until 2 in the morning. By that time I’m asleep.

How can I get him to see that I want our marriage to be great, but I just can’t wait until 2 in the morning to have sex?

Great question! Be sure, of course, that you’re not “Turning Your Husband Off” all day and giving him those vibes. But assuming she’s not, what should she do?

Leave your thoughts in the comments!

UPDATE: I’ve written some more posts to help with this issue. Here’s one: My Husband Plays Video Games Every Night, and here’s another: Adults Need Bedtimes, Too.
