After 18 years of continuous sobriety my wife started drinking again.
Not being able to adopt the baby was the final straw in a haystack built over a lifetime of trauma that sealed the deal.
We have been married for over 13.
I had never seen her drink alcohol.
Now I have.
To say that there will be a rough road ahead is an understatement.
But, I said “I do” to ALL of the cliche vows that go with being married and I’m sticking to them.
We met in sobriety. I didn’t marry her because of it.
I love her and will do whatever it takes to help her.
Except, drink with her.
The storm is brewing, another change on the horizon.
Damn, this life.
