Hello, I'm asking for prayers for my husband and my marriage. My husband is an alcoholic, he doesn't drink very often but when he does he drinks to get drunk. I am not trying to be a control freak, nor am I trying to be his mom. I feel like he does not respect me as his wife and I in turn show no respect for him because I become angry with him and tend to make rude comments to him. I know this is not how God wants me to act toward my husband but it is very difficult. I do even like going out with him to barbeques or any social gatherings because once he takes that first sip of alcohol there is no stopping him. I do not feel secure with him and feel like he cannot protect me if anything were to happen. A wife should be able to rely and feel protected with her husband and I do not. I am not ready to give up on my marriage because I am not a quitter, I do not want to quit on my husband but I also don't feel like I can live the rest of my life this way. I know that God can change any situation, so I am putting my faith in God to get me through this. Our relation is great until alcohol comes into play. There are certain things that trigger him wanting a drink, and unfortunately I have not control over that. I take myself out of the situation by leaving but the next day I am the one to get blamed that I don't love him. I don't know what I want anymore. Please pray for us, as I know prayer changes everything.
