Two hundred divorces in the UK since the beginning of the year have cited Fortnight as the reason for the breakup.
If you don’t know what Fortnight is, your children can probably tell you. It’s a highly addictive, time-consuming video game that can be downloaded and played for free on the Internet.
My two teensage boys play it most every night after they do their homework. But about half of the Fortnite players are adults.
Fortnite is a shooter-survival game, where the goal is to kill off everyone else. Last man or woman standing wins.
You can buy digital items from Fortnite, like different outfits for your character, and that’s how Fortnite makes money – to the tune of about three million dollars a month.
Spending your time killing video players may be more exciting than your real life relationship, but you should be aware that it can lead to divorce.
