15% of Divorces Are Now Caused By Video Games?
You’d never suspect them, but the Mario Brothers are trying to break up your marriage.
According to an annual study by Divorce Online from Deseret News, up to 15% of the divorces in the last year cited VIDEO GAMES as a contributing factor to the marriage breaking up. “World of Warcraft” and “Call of Duty” were the games cited most frequently.
The year before, video games were cited in 5% of divorces. The researchers say the jump is probably because of the recession . . . more people are staying indoors, and that can feed video game addiction.
