In case you didn’t know, ‘Fortnite’ is a video game that is pretty much aimed at middle school kids – but the popular game has had a surprising effect on marriages in the UK as reports say it is the reason behind 5% of divorces this year!
Divorce Online revealed that 200 of their total 4,665 online divorce petitions said that Fortnite was the reason behind the break-up!
Of course, there may have been other issues in the marriage, but we’re still pretty surprised to find that a video game aimed at kids is causing adults to split up!
Could it be time for people to get a reality check?
That said, The World Health Organization recently recognized video game addiction as a genuine mental health problem – so perhaps the question lies in how these games are made to appeal to people more than their real lives?
No, us neither!
People really do need to get a grip (and we expect by ‘people’ we mostly mean men!)
