Well, my story is like so many others. Very sad! My husband of 27 years is an alcoholic. We have been separated for almost a year now. I told him the other day that it was time to do something about our situation. That we needed to file for divorce. He just won't try anything to stop. I don't feel the same about him anymore, he has hurt our family in so many ways so many times. I have three children, two are adults, my daughter is 13. He still loves me very much and does not want a divorce. I think he would live this way forever if it meant he could come home during the day on weekends only and leave to go to his alcohol mistress at night. I'm 47, but I think I could still find some happiness with a full time husband. I suppose I will always love him in many ways, he is the father of my children, but I have to find a way to get us out of this situation. The hurt and loneliness will end one day if I persevere to get out but if I stay in this situation it will continue forever.
