My marriage is a misery because my wife drinks too much and never has sex with meDecember 26, 2018
We are both 40, with sons of 15 and 11. She gets through a bottle of vodka every other day but denies it’s a problem. I couldn’t get her to see a counsellor.
Now I am starting to resent her and I only stay for the kids’ sake. I don’t know how much longer I can stick with it.
I feel I deserve love in my life and it is time I found someone else. My best mate says I should leave, get my life back.
DEIDRE SAYS: Life does sound grim but please don’t walk out on your sons. They need you to protect them from your wife’s alcoholism.
If she won’t get help to stop drinking, maybe she is the one who has to leave.
Explore the options with people who have been there through Al-Anon, which helps partners and families affected by someone else’s drinking (al-anonuk.org.uk, 0800 0086 811).
