The true endgame boss of Diablo 3

Is my wife, bless her heart. Diablo 3 is about the only game that she will play with me but gods almighty does it test my patience...

Typical session starts with running through a level/area while she complains about not remembering which skills do what and then proceeds to pause the game and change everything around every 2 minutes. Every level up requires an in depth study of each new skill and rune. Every third item drop requires opening the menu to inspect her new gear.

After about 20 minutes of this we'll end up back at the town and she'll systematically go through every vendors' offerings, and falling any potential upgrades she'll start crafting whole new sets of armour and weapons. "No hunny, critical hit chance and damage aren't important... yep, just follow the green arrows", I say whilst internally crying. And then we get to the good stuff! The mystic, with all those pretty colours and transmogs. Cue another 15 minute montage of trying on every set and colour to find our new favourite look. I mean, who cares if we're gonna get better gear in the next 10 minutes, right? And by the time I quickly sift through my gear and skills she's found herself sucked back into social media apps on her phone and doesn't feel like playing anymore.

Tonight we got from level 22 to 25 and it only took an hour and a half! Lol. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely adore my wife; but I'll be damned if she doesn't turn d3 into a most trying experience!

EDIT: This post is a sarcastic/funny story that I thought people would either relate to or have a laugh with. I don't have relationship problems, everything I've said in the post I've said directly to my wife, and I absolutely love playing with my wife and appreciate her interest in playing with me.

I appreciate everyone's concerns, but I really don't need any relationship advice or suggestions on how to "fix" my wife's playing habits! Lol
