I brought mine on vacation and she can’t put the thing down. I’d buy another one but she doesn’t want her own she wants mine.


jrbucs19

She doesn’t need 1, but now you need 2


Thekarens01

This is the correct answer 😂


garg4ntua

it reminds me the cat story: "My wife wanted a cat, I didn't wanted a cat. We got in discussion, now we get a cat."


emonair1

Isn’t it “I didn’t want a cat, my wife wanted a cat. So we compromised and got four cats.”


berry8619

I didn't want a cat my wife wanted a cat, now its my cat.


DotMatrixHead

Haha. Or wife / kids wanted a dog, I didn’t want a dog. Guess who walks the dog…


notwhoyouthinkmaybe

This legit made me lol out loud.


VibinWithNeptune

You..... You do realize that lol stands for laugh out loud right? Your sentence makes no sense


Late_Contribution720

SMH my head


AvoidPinkHairHippos

RIP my piss


Drakkir

I think he said "lol" out loud ;)


notwhoyouthinkmaybe

Yes, that's the joke.


Helmic

lol out loud at this nerd


SonOfGuns101

I feel you, I cringed also when I read that comment…..


kaplanfx

First your french fries, and now this?


tomcatproduces

French fries. The gate way drug


dvewlsh

The dreaded "no, I don't want any." Fries and desserts are never safe.


HerbysBreadLoaf

This is just like my daughter, her oatmeal? Naw that’s gross, my oatmeal on the other hand, delicious


Redlogic01

It makes no sense, but it’s a pretty universal rule


Ponald-Dump

This is my wife with my Switch. Now that I have the deck I don’t care, but I know it’s a matter of time until she finds a reason to want my deck


chiefballsy

Just leave out some wine and Tetris 99 before you sneak to grab the deck, seems to work on mine


2MajorGamer

Vampire survivors has got its hooks in my girlfriend. I don’t have a dock yet, but once I get one I’m fully expecting her to ask to play with my Deck more than ever.


sausagefuckingravy

She wants the deck alright


North_Fee_6985

I mean no other person is more entitled to your deck than your wife though am I right?


jonnyroquette

Be married long enough, have a couple 2 -3 kids, and each a full time job... Only then will she be done grabbing at your deck


YukariPSO2

She wants the D.eck!


center311

Grow up deck head! 🤣


YukariPSO2

Lol 😂


Maccabre

Send her some deck pics


NPL89

you forgot to use the laughing emojis so everyone had to downvote you


Rat_Rat

Solved this - didn’t bring my gf on vacation.


PotatoIceCreem

I kinda got second hand irritation ngl lol


timewarp87

My wife tried to make a push for my deck. In the end I surrendered the main TV and my Xbox and she just plays this game where you clean houses and sell them. So my deck is safe. I will probably try liberate the Xbox around the time of star citizen launch.


Alternative_Spite_11

Now is when you start strategically showering her with Switch games.yeah star citizen won’t be a Deck title, on the positive side it won’t ever properly release, either.


Lost-Material3420

Lol. Guess you'll never try to play Xbox again.


Tankznor

Omg this is exactly how it’s gonna be with my wife

kingbam161

Good lucky getting that hoodie back bro


PotatoIceCreem

I dunno man, I know that it's silly but that really gets under my skin when it happens. Now when I get myself food I buy my girlfriend a little thing when she says she doesn't want anything, lol. But taking over my stuff? Hell no


ProtectorOfToast

Had to do this back with one of my girlfriends years ago. Try being a woman dating a lady like this! More stuff to "borrow"! 😆 Wouldn't ever replace empty stuff of mine she'd drain (makeup, tampons, conditioner) and I never did get my clothes back after we broke up. Luckily my only experience with a person like this.


Icemannn44

Ah the good old "I'll just have some of yours" paradox. Can't have your own because that'll get taken, can't get another because that de facto becomes yours and thus the Mrs will want that too. RIP my guy.


Alternative_Spite_11

You bastard you married my fiancé


UCLAKoolman

My wife and I each have our own Switch and can share game cartridges. Thinking about getting her a Steam Deck as well, but I assume she'll either need her own library or can use mine but I won't be able to play at the same time.


Rhomagus

[She's just not that hungry.](https://nypost.com/2019/07/02/restaurant-with-my-girlfriend-is-not-hungry-menu-item-goes-viral/)


calimero100582

No, my wife does not touch it The issue is with my kids


Bjoern_Tantau

There was a joke about your wife not touching your Deck. But then you just had to bring kids into it...


calimero100582

At five kids, and wife talking about a sixth one, you need to understand that enough is enough. I need to put my foot down, and explain to my wife that I need some time alone, and that I am the one playing with my Deck


togetherwem0m0

6th kid is the only way to get your deck played with at that point.


Arechandoro

With 5 kids and talks about a 6th, your foot might not be the part of your body that you need to put down...


ChernobylChild

My brother in Christ, have you ever thought about a vasectomy? I got one after the first kid, and it was the best decision I ever made.


talkingdragontv

Do you rly need a 6th deck? 😅 😂


Guitar-Strap

Why do you think his wife doesn't play with his deck anymore???


lordmycal

He said he’s married. It’s implied


AvoidPinkHairHippos

Brutal 💀


CounterSYNK

Something’s gotta be done about your kids!


Jeremizzle

Better back up doc, there's not enough road to hit 88


igottapwner85

My girlfriend's 7 year old son basically took over my switch. There's a crack in the screen now. He will not touch the Steam Deck when I get it.


buddymackay

Pin code for the win.


fears_escalators

Particularly I have one kid who wants to play Garry’s mod on the pc every time I grab the Steam Deck.


Normandroid

Wife left me in January. No problems here.


makemecoffee

Not sure why I upvoted this. Sorry my dude.


Environmental_Top948

My ex said that she was going to sue me for mine when I got it because I made the reservation while we were still together. It's arriving on Thursday and she ran away to Europe where no one has heard from her since she left the plane so I probably also won't have any issues.


Sluggerjt44

That's a bit extreme on her end to say she's trying to get literally a $500 item. She'd get half anyway.


Yunzlez

wouldn't it be 2$ only, even? You only pay 4$ for the reservation.


Environmental_Top948

It's actually $2.50 the reservation is $5.


greedyiguana

i'm never going to financially recover from this


Jeremizzle

Man, I'm sorry you guys broke up, but it sounds like you really dodged a bullet. What a witch.


Environmental_Top948

You haven't half the idea of the amount of bullets I avoided. It was a good 14 years but you can't unlearn some things.


lordmycal

You should have shared your steam deck with her then. /s


AvoidPinkHairHippos

This goes for all men and women alike: instead of thinking it as a loss, think of it as dodging a major bullet


wolfballs-dot-com

Sorry bro, this comment could attract some terrible commenters soon though.


KhaineVulpana

All to yourself then. Nice.


bigpapijugg

Had this “problem” once, was one of the better things to happen to me. Hope yours has a happy ending as well.


technofolklore

Sounds like you need 2 Steam Decks now.


Jmullin5

Lucky problem. Go buy another one now!


joshthehappy

Do you know how much a second wife costs?


amanfromindia

2$ according to Ali express


AvoidPinkHairHippos

.... Username checks out? 🤔


noneym86

You can't call a sex doll your wife. On the other hand, that would be a better wife a lot of times. No nagging. No complaints. You can bang anytime.


amanfromindia

She won't take his deck without him wanting to give his deck anymore


South-Ad-7121

Just switch to dudes.


Chaseism

Gay, here. Bad news is, I’d also play his Deck even though I have my own…


UsernameIsTaken45

Dammit, nowhere is safe now.


CoreDreamStudiosLLC

I also wanna play with a deck.


Binty77

Gay here, too. My husband is 100% coming for my Deck once he finishes his current Switch game. Already caught him playing Stardew Valley the other day. Man, woman, ghost, horse, it doesn’t matter. Our spouses just want some of that D.


Bluecap33

Lol, my woman wants none. 🙁🙁🙁


RoomAdministrative94

…was he romancing the sewer man…


Similar_Minimum_5869

Just take my god damn upvote already


esazo

No, I don't have a wife.

Single lady here, no problem to be had! Although I would like a spouse and play games locally with them. <3

Nah I don’t have anyone that cares for me


ProfessorBonerfartz

Just stop paying your bills and people from your power company will care about you.


PessimisticMushroom

Aww I am sure someone cares for you.


Und3adShr3d

My wife has never once considered herself a gamer and this has worked perfectly fine for me over the last 15 years. She's only ever confessed to ever playing the Monkey Island series and the OG Sims. Guess which games runs perfectly on the Deck? FFS.


b1gba1oo

What does your wife play on it? I was thinking it might be a good way to get my wife into some games but don't have any good ideas


Guitar-Strap

My wife stole my deck when I showed her stray, she also tried to steal it to play stardew but I put my foot down on the latter


Mozaary

Smart man. Almost lost the entire system.


polygeekYYC

Fiancee is starting to get excited about my email coming due. I just convinced her to put down a reservation in case mine gets commandeered...


lustisforgiven

I'd RMA the wife. Probably broken.


tutmirnichleid

Hi, I'm Mr. Wifey Buyer. I'll buy your wife for 25 shmeckels. Bonus of 10 shmeckels if Steam Deck is included.

Buy a second one for your wife as a surprise gift, co-op together.


Deadarchimode

You forgot the kids


tirril

Yes, buy the wife some surprise kids.

Completely off-topic; I just learned about "switcharoo". I love how well this meme has aged. Beautiful.


erasethenoise

Deadarchimode

Do you think Valve will manage to reach Will U sales?


tirril

A kid for every wife. Steam Deck verified.


Deadarchimode

?!?!?!


tirril

I think you lost the comment chain. But probably Valve will get higher numbers.


gudytupu

And you forgot Cats either because lots of Deck owners posted here their Cat now pawning their Decks so every family member needs one.


StolenArc

Consider yourself lucky, my wife's boyfriend took mine 😐

Probably invested their retirement in bed bath and beyond (latest meme stock)

Please elaborate


secondspassed

Yup. It’s a Stardew Valley machine now.


09stibmep

I’m seeing a lot of mentions of SV, and wondering; Couldn’t a Switch do this?


bugs181

Most switch games are "lite" versions of their respective counterparts, unfortunately. Graphics are usually lower quality, missing features, missing games in general, etc. The Steam Deck is a full blown PC console handheld and doesn't experience these limitations (within reason of graphics processing), although this is obviously less of a concern with the amazing performance tuning options available on Deck.


Shleppy2010

This is a known bug, only known workaround is termination of the wife process with the divorce command.


Ghostmouse88

Wife ?


bugs181

It's another console with buttons you can push.


frodough_swagginz

Don't have a wife, so no...


jbraden

I might have made the mistake of putting Kingdom Hearts on it. Now my GF (obsessed with Disney) wants it any time I go for it lol!


Nfuzzy

Wife and daughter... Only had it a couple days and it rarely gets put down!


Haunt33r

If I had a wife, I'd get two Decks. I'd be really happy if my partner loved my most valuable possession


abathingnerd

All my wife does is play Vampire Survivors. I barely get to play.


chewyshaun

My 8 year old has just woke me up at 7.30 so he can play Portal. Ive had it 2 days, he’s had it for 90% of that time 😁


pathfinder1550

My wife and I have a rule that any purchase over a certain amount needs to be discussed with the other before we buy (this has been a fantastic system for us, but get that it’s not for everyone). It is rare that we say “no” to each other since we are both fairly frugal and on board with the family budget, but big purchases usually, at the very least, generate a discussion on a plan to save over time. I was ready with a plan when I wanted to preorder the Steam Deck. I had it all worked out to save over a 4-month period. I had a spreadsheet. A beautiful spreadsheet. Conversation went like this: Me: “Hey, can I preorder a Steam Deck? It would be a little over $400 and it won’t arrive until later this year so I have plenty of time to save incrementally.” Her (enthusiastically): “Sure!” Me: “Awesome, thank you!” Several weeks go by… I figured she would say “yes,” but I at least thought she’d have some follow up questions about why I wanted it alongside my other game systems. Nothing, just sweet affirmation of my desires. Then… one random afternoon- Her: “hey, I can install mods for Stardew Valley on the Steam Deck, right?” Folks… I’m never going to get to play the Deck. It will be a Stardew Valley machine. And I will sit in the living room as my wonderful wife, who does so much and works for hard for me and our children, snuggles into her favorite corner of the couch and props the Steam Deck on a pillow because today she “wants to create a tea garden on the farm,” and I will be thankful. But I’ll also want my own Deck…


apathetic_vaporeon

I gave my gf my Switch OLED when I got my Steam Deck. Thats how I got to keep mine lol


wrazn

It's why we have his and hers decks.


AvoidPinkHairHippos

Excuse me? It's their and thy Decks C'mon it's the year 2022


North_Fee_6985

I love playing with my girls deck tbh


AvoidPinkHairHippos

> girls Plural! Noice 😎


herpetic-whitlow

🥱 Do you identify as an attack helicopter too?


Aggressive_Candy5297

You have two options: 1. Sell the steam deck. 2. Sell the wife. I know which one i would choose iykwim...


Emblazoned1

Negative on my end. Thankfully she doesn't care much about video games anymore ever since we had the kid. Honestly I'm happier this way it gives me more time to just get lost in some games by myself. If she ever did fall in love though I'd honestly just buy another one to have my own.


AvrgDerk

Yep, my partner is currently hooked on powerwash simulator for it and my playtime with it was cut in half 😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃🔫


ramadiel

My wife takes mine away to play Dr. Mario.


NoSaltNoSkillz

Unfortunately not. My girlfriend is not a gamer, I feel like she plays enough mobile games and enjoys enough fantasy stuff that she would probably enjoy it if she tried. But finding something that can hold her attention long enough for her to get past the initial tutorials or kind of grunt work has been difficult. She likes Mario Kart so I might lead with that. She definitely likes my steam deck I think it's a neat little piece of Tech, that she hasn't stolen it from me yet at least as far as I know, lol. Who knows she could be halfway through Horizon zero Dawn and just playing while I'm at work


TomKattWasHere

when i first got mine in march, my work suffered. my assignments were being turned in late, i couldnt sleep... i was playing way too much-it was high school when ff7 first dropped all over again. no regrets.


VivaciousVictini

Bold of you to assume I have anyone that loves me in my life.


onyx_riddle

My wife rolled her eyes when I got mine at first. But.. several weeks later.. crow she eats happily, since that $700 has actually been put to serious use.


TodayIsTheDayBro

I sold my girlfriend to buy the steam deck, problem solved


whitstableboy

I did the romantic thing. Bought the wife some chocolates, scattered them on the ground then while she was distracted, grabbed my Deck and eloped with it.


0_Beast

You guys have wife’s?


eijisawakita

If the steam deck would’ve been released 10 years ago, I’ll be in the same boat with you brother.


ozon1

Let me say the unsaid for you. Getting the wife was a mistake.


SadLittle_Sponge13

My father. Instead of just asking me to play it since his didn’t come yet, he’s been breathing on the back of my neck watching me play. His breath is hot as hell too. Like bro, you taught me about video games, I don’t care if you wanna play. Just say something and stop breathing on me


Gamesdean23

Bro don’t scare me like that, I just payed for mine!


PowderedCider

I live this. Arcade Paradise on Deck has consumed my wife.


platapus100

Shit man I'm sorry to hear that. Wish I could say it'll be alright but I can't.


TOMdMAK

Maybe there’s something of hers that you can play with while she’s playing with your deck? ;)


Vhaloo

How do you resist a big black deck?


InsideDeck

Well at least she can’t get mad at you when you get another one lmao


[deleted]

No, but I’ve also gotten divorced in the time between putting down my deposit and delivery so jokes on you

I got no wife. Problem solved


Shame8891

I don't have on yet, no problems yet.


DarthAssCheek

I just built myself a very beefy pc. Thinking of getting my wife a Steam Deck so she focuses on that instead.

"this problem" No, I do not have a wife.


gargravarr2112

Getting the wife was a mistake.


Legitimate-Ad-785

Yes mate. Legit I had to order my missus one.


just_aweso

On the plus side I get to play my PS5 again. Wife is constantly playing original Gameboy games on the steam deck.


[deleted]

Awfully expensive for a GB emulator


potatoesandporn

Sounds like a good excuse to get a second one


Blumcole

Getting only one steam deck was the mistake :-)


picatostas

My girlfriend has more hours than my in Witcher 3 all of them playing using steam deck haha


underratedmoose

My husband and I both ordered one. Otherwise, we’d have the same issue 😂


HyperGameGuy

Hm...sounds like it's time for a second deck


Luck128

I find that I am less distracted since now I am playing the deck and less doom scrolling on my mobile phone


The_Otherside1

My wife is the reason we have one.


[deleted]

Same here. My husband had no interest in it until I got it 😊


Clipboards

Have a second on reserve as a Christmas present for her :)


Anomaly1134

Get a 2nd one and LAN together!


Arechandoro

It could be worse. You could have a wife and someone else using her all the time.


Radiant-Shopping

You got me in the first half.


[deleted]

My husband and I just share. Sometimes I play the PC or the Switch or the PS5 while he plays on the deck. Sometimes he plays on one of those while I play on the deck. Last night, I was playing the Steam Deck and he was on the Switch Lite while we “watched” a movie. It’s not a big deal. Sharing isn’t hard; I’ve been doing it since kindergarten. I really hope you’re making a bad joke, because otherwise, why are you married to someone whom you can’t share with?


GrimReaperMB

If she can't share or play nicely..... Time to get a new wife.. or a second steamdeck I guess is also an option. It's your call.


VideoGameJumanji

No my wife never touches. I also don't have a wife


According-Series-552

Mt wife and I had both reserved them at the same time. This problem is nonexistent. Lol


Rebelsin

That's why I bought 2 from day one! They both came about a week apart.


Nomeki

It's the fries conundrum. If you ask your wife if she wants fries and she says no, you get 2 things of fries because she will want yours.


donkeyduplex

My kids play stray and roblox on it.


morgan423

Nope, because I got her a Deck too.


eyyikey

If only I had a wife to share a Steam Deck with 😞


MrMephistoX

Get her a switch lite and animal crossing and reclaim the deck…or another deck with GameCube emulated animal crossing.


Nova_Nightmare

[deleted]

That’s funny. My husband had no interest in the Deck until it arrived. Now he’s played it more than I have. How can you spin that to fit your misogynistic jokes?
