It's not about the poker, per se.

For me, it's about time I'm not seeing my husband and it's time he's choosing not to spend with me, and clearly it's time she values.

I don't sleep well when DH isn't home. I just don't. I keep waking up wonder when he's going to be home and if he's dead in a ditch somewhere or something. I get that you're at the neighbor's and are probably walking home, but the concept is similar. Not sure if your wife is the same way, but that would be something that would mess with my evening as well.

Also, at least with DH and myself, we both work. A Friday night game like that ON TOP OF a Sunday game means that for that weekend, you're:

- Not home Friday evening
- Sleeping relatively late on Saturday morning
- Going out again Sunday for another game (perhaps?)

From my perspective, it'd seem that the majority of your weekend is either about being AT a poker game or recovering from a poker game.

I understand it's once a month... is she home on those evenings? Maybe you can help arrange something fun for her to do on those evenings - a treat for herself that she might not ordinarily indulge in?
