I play poker once a month on Friday nights. This is in addition to playing on Sunday evenings two or three times a month. The Sunday games are from 4-8. The friday Games are from 8 til whenever, sometimes two or three am.

The Friday games make my wife very upset. I just got both barrels of "I wasn't raised to stay out until three oclock in the morning gambling and then to come home and sleep in until 10 or 11 oclock in the morning"

For the record, we play fairly low limit poker in both cases and I am a competent poker player who generally wins more than he loses. I don't gamble otherwise, and would be content playing for bottle caps if it came to that.

She doesn't care about the Sunday games, since they are over at 8 and I'm home by 9. It really seems to be a matter of the Friday games running well in to the wee hours of the morning.

If it matters, the participants are my neighbors and my wife is good friends with them. We've vacationed together as families in the past and will do so in the future.
