I'm sorry, I can't offer any help but am in exactly the same situation.

Why can't they see what they've done and be the adult and do the right thing?

Sorry again but I share your pain.

Find a lawyer who's first consultation is free. Ask him/her what to do and they should advise you free of charge. Good luck to you both. My heart goes out to you and the kids. I hope you find help. God bless Mary.

The problem is (and has been for years) not if he goes or not but what will YOU do if he leaves.

When YOU fix YOU then it won't matter much what he does.

Al-Anon and Nar-Anon can help you if you let them.

All the best.

The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

--- driven by a hundred forms of fear, self-delusion, self-seeking, and self-pity.

---there are those too who suffer from grave emotional and mental disorders but many of them do recover if they have the capacity to be honest.

... I need AA more than it needs me.

--- I fight recovery tooth and nail....
I'm not used to being sane, it just doesn't seem natural.

...... According to the great spiritual teachers, ignorance does not result from what we don’t know; ignorance results from what we think we do know.

---Some think that 2+2=5 and believe it.
Some know that 2+2=4 and can't stand it.

--- I didn't have a very happy childhood
but I sure am having a long one !

---Dry since 1989
working daily on getting/staying SOBER.

---If you want to drink, that's your business
...If you want to quit, that's AA's business.

... Tell me, I'll forget;
... Show me, I'll remember;
... Engage me, I'll understand.

---Most problems are psychological.
Most solutions are spiritual .
