Abstract [en]

Online-gaming (OG) is a fast-growing phenomenon that could have a major impact in people's

life. This study analyses the impact online-gaming has on cohabitational-love relationships and

outsiders of the OG world. The study is based on six qualitative interviews with couples engaged

in the world of internet-usage and OG. The interviews were performed both individually and

together with their partner. There are many positive effects that comes with internet and OG, but

there are also plenty of negative. Central questions for this study are therefore how OG are

perceived within the relationships and how the potential consequences it leads to are dealt with.

The study also discusses who the problem initiator is, and how the negotiation within the

relationship looks like. Previous research shows conflict as a result of too much time spent with

online-gaming. The result of this study therefore aspires to add a complementary layer to what

may be the cause of these conflicts. The result shows that a lack of accountability and too much

time spent involved with OG creates reasons for conflict. The presented solution included mutual

agreement for what is to be seen as a fair amount of time spent with OG. If the time exceeds

stated agreement, it seemed to be a reason for conflict. But if not, OG would mostly be seen as

something positive for both parties when it comes to their individual well-being.
