For as long as I know my husband, David, he has drunk himself into oblivion. Since we met in college and most people drank, including myself, I figured with passing time the drinking would lessen. I know that alcohol can play an exciting role in a couple’s life, romantic weekends with champagne, winery tours, and the toast on your wedding day. However, for many couples and especially in my marriage alcohol was not always associated with a good memory and for a while, I blamed it for destroying my relationship. For many people, it could be uncomfortable to live with or even just date someone with an alcohol addiction, let alone be married to one.
