Look with all do respect (I use to have the same issues with my wife), the answer to the problem lies in how you explain your situation.
So your wife wants attention, and she feels that poker Is taking a bigger chunk of your time and thus you're not really spending time with her in the end, and you are saying "I can't live without poker in my life". Now from the wife's point of view when you stated "I can't live without poker", this is how she understands your words "I can't live without poker", So he's implying "He can live without me"? To be fair at first that was my wife's thought process (I could totally be of on this, but am just trying to help). So the solution to the issue is as follows, you sit down with your wife/girlfriend, and tell her, "Look sexy, I love you" (always an excellent start ), Than explain to her why poker is so important to you (She deserves that much at-least correct)? After-wards If she still doesn't comprehend, explain to her your goals for the game of poker and (How you would also treat her), If all fails, get her addicted to the game .
So hope that helps
