The tale of a spouse who pays more attention to a hobby than a significant other is an old one. Just what that hobby is has changed over the years. Be it watching sports, spending too much time at the office, or playing too many video games, it's a tale as old as time. It's amazing then, that in Rachel Shukert's case, video games actually saved a marriage. The particular game in question is Rock Band, which pulled her husband away from solitary first person shooters and brought the two together on the rise to virtual stardom. It's really a touching story with a sound moral: all marital problems can be solved with Rock Band. Just try not to fight over who gets to play which instrument.
