DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been married for 47 years. Since retiring from her job, she has become addicted to her DVR. She records everything that comes into her head to watch it “later”. She has shows she recorded in the last year but didn’t watch, and they take up 90% of her DVR drive. She only uses about 10% of it for the new shows she watches to make room for other programs. So every night we have to watch what she recorded that day to make room for the next day’s recordings.
If I say anything about it, she gets very upset and it causes tension. Some shows I don’t mind, but there aren’t many that I’ll spend time watching. Wish there was a support group for husbands of wives who are addicted to their DVRs so we can understand what’s going through their minds. How should I fix the problem? — SAVED FOR LATER IN TEXAS
