... She does need therapy and counseling but your boyfriend does too. A lot of her behavior is that of an addict. She manipulates and plays the martyr to get her way. I dont want my words to sound like she is drinking again-I just wanted to clarify. Your boyfriend may find some help with Alanon. They teach people skills on how to deal with co-dependant people in their life. He is... (5 replies)

... it will definately get worse if you get married! he's a mama's boy for starters, and in a co-dependent relationship with her. It's not all her fault, it takes two to tango..... I'd hold off on marriage, it will just put you both in competition with each other because she will hold tighter thinking she's losing him, and you will be mad that she just doesn't get it, and the...

... eightball61, Thanks for your advice.. :) Yes, I have sought counselling in the past..I agree that I DEFINATELY need a new outlook on life..It's really pathetic, at my age, to be this childish, needy, selfish person that I am. I really feel like I need to just grow up, and STOP the drinking. I try to be a good mother, and a good wife, but am destroying myself, little by... (4 replies)

OR Find a man who wants children;... (25 replies)

... Kass.....This has gone on long enough. Actually way too long. I am very aware of your situation from the other board and this is not only a pattern in your marriage, but it is obviously getting worse, not better.

... I have written a long letter to her, and explained my thoughts and feelings and that I was leaving her. I have spoken to her mother, and her mother said that she can live with her for as long as she needs to. I feel I have covered all bases except for 2. ... (31 replies)
... Thank you all for your replies.. but I think some of you have the wrong idea. My boyfriend was not a drug addict when I met him, and he's not a drug addict now. This was a phase he went through about 2 years ago (1 year into our relationship). I learned from my father to stay away from drug addicts. I saw the pain he caused my mother, and I would've never gotten into a... (29 replies)
