"Would you put down the damn phone already?"

A lot of expats increasingly settle in Cambodia with families and kids, or acquire them while here. This forum is a place to ask questions and discuss all things family.

Does she still look at her smart phone while you both having a foreplay?

Dinner, traffic, movie theater, foreplay.... The first few times I brought it up she laughed it off and when I pressed a little harder she accused me of being selfish and needy.

It seems I have 3 choices, here:

1. Accept the phone as a third party in our relationship
2. Expect her to change
3. Walk away

Looking around at the zombified Khmer population around me, I can't imagine I'm alone in this predicament...#1 is a no-go for me and I'm curious if anyone here has had success with #2 (e.g., maybe all it takes is a frank talk about cultural differences regarding phone etiquette? Conscious boundary-setting?) Or are my expectations unrealistic?

Bring in #4: Your phone/laptop. Take care you are typing around like mad-man and it'll bring you status.
Status is far more important than 1:1 communication. It makes her more important in the eyes of the spectators, when she is on the phone and you are "desperately" waiting for her attention.
