5 years ago I married a man that was a sober alcoholic. Believing that he had allowed the Lord to work in his life, and we all deserve a chance to move forward regardless of our past issues. I met this man in church, in a bible study, and he loves the Lord. At the time, I believed God had brought him into our family to be the mentor/example and hope for my son, who is also an alcoholic. Two years AFTER we were married, he started drinking again. Slowly and indiscretely at first, but now - 3 years later - this man drinks most every day. He has managed to hold his job (so far) but he now does miss work to drink, refuses to live with me because I have set boundaries as to what I can and can not accept, and I won't enable him or tell him what he is doing is fine. It's not fine. We both have health issues and have no health insurance because he refuses to pay the money, and we are in debt. I now live alone, he has promised to pay the bills till I can get on my feet and so far he has done that, but I know he is not in a good place and can crash at any time. I have been actively looking for work, but so far no luck. I accept that God is in control of this situation, even though I am not. Praying for God's guidance and peace, and for the Lord to hold him in His arms and lead us both closer to Him. I am affected on all sides by alcoholism, have been in one way or another all my life, and while I have kept my faith, my heart is broken.
