    My husband prefers to stay out at night always. He thinks going out at night and drinking with friends is enjoyment.We are married for 4 years now.What do i do to get him and myself out of this situation ?

    I have no clue how to deal. My husband has been a drinker for years, now he moved on from beer to vodka, he has a drink then drives & goes to work drinking. He is spending all our money. He lost his job & crashed his vehicle, I dont think he was drunk? Im terrified were going to lose our new home & take me down with him. He has a great new job now. He promises to stop then drinks the next day. Me saying if you drink its your problem, dont make it mine. If you choose to drink I choose to end our marriage doesnt phase him. Hes a very violent drinker. Hasnt hit me yet but throws stuff at me & breaks things. Every week he drinks so much he blacks out. I dont know what to do anymore. Hes such a good guy minus alcohol. I have no family to turn too so thats not an option. I put all my retirement & savings into our new home. Im stuck 🙁
    Anyones input would be awesome.
    Thank you
    God Bless everyone…

    Can’t leave. Four kids–even though he’s “functional”, they can’t deal
    With his fight picking and bs. There’s no hope. He thinks I’m going to keep working when he retires early so he can drink, travel without me, etc

    I am 82, husband 87 soon. Family is due to arrive for holiday. Married over 65 years. My heart is crushed. Never know how he will be. Not assuming good today. God help me

    I cannot thank you all enough for your painful stories. I am in everyone of them.
    I am severing my Relationship at this moment. I know I am doing the right thing that is: I AM SAVING MY OWN LIFE.
    Every single story is my story too.
    Thank you for giving me the courage to do this. God bless all of you. Stay strong and know you are not alone.
