Wife Sells Video Game Obsessed Husband On Craigslist - A wife in Utah has made headlines after she listed her video game obsessed husband for sale on Craigslist. The woman’s ad describes the man as “easy to maintain and only needs food and water every few hours.”

Alyse Bradley says she posted the ad “just for fun” after a recent 48-hour long video game marathon left her feeling alone and ignored by the recently discharged military veteran.

The Graigslist ad reads: “I am selling my 22 year old husband. He enjoys eating and playing video games all day. Easy to maintain, just feed and water every 3-5 hours. You must have Internet and space for gaming. Got tired of waiting so free to good home. If acceptable replacement is offered will trade.

“Bradley said the problem got worse after the November 8th release of Modern Warfare 3. She claims her husband stood in line to buy the game and hasn’t put down the controller’s since, reports ABC 4 News.

Joseph Baddley admitted his obsession with the game “is not normal,” but defended his virtual gaming by saying it was how he stayed connected with friends from the military. The Baddley’s were married in 2009 prior to Joseph’s deployment to Afghanistan.

The couple told HJNews they have received an avalanche of replies to the ad, some suggesting marital counseling.”I’ve had a couple personal ads from men saying, “Oh I’m housebroke, I’m trained, I’ll trade him places,” said Mrs Baddley. But the young wife insists its all a joke and said, she loves her husband and he deserved the downtime with the game after all he has been through.
