Dear Angela,

My husband (31) spends most of his free time on his laptop. He says he only checks Twitter and reads books on WattPad, but he’s lying: When I walked in on him one day I saw nude people on his laptop screen.

He quickly changed it to something innocent, but it was too late.

I got so curious that I asked a friend to check his internet history, and that’s when I found out that my husband plays online sex games.

When I confronted him he was furious, he said I have no right to snoop, and that he’ll keep playing because it’s harmless.

I’m not happy with that, I don’t want my husband to cheat on me with other people, even if it’s only online.

Answer: First of all, your husband is entitled to some privacy and you should at least have talked about your worries before you snooped on him.

Secondly, online sex games don’t necessarily involve other people. There are many games out there that you can play on your own.

These games allow people to live out their sexual fantasies and that’s perfectly ok as long as it doesn’t turn into an obsession.

If your man’s online habits bother you then talk to him, it will help you to understand him better. Work out some rules that you’re both comfortable and happy with.
