Married To An Alcoholic Spouse Who Is Cheating On You

Posted May 29 2010 9:20am

Are you married to an alcoholic spouse who is cheating on you?

Unfortunately, this is not uncommon at all. Alcohol abuse  and marital affairs go hand in hand.  Other “alcoholic behavior” includes:

  • Your alcoholic husband or alcoholic wife demanding to be the center of your life.
  • Your alcoholic spouse showing an unwillingness to compromise and expecting to always get their way. It does not feel like a partnership to you, ever.
  • Your alcoholic spouse having very high expectations of you and wanting to control you.
  • Your alcoholic spouse being unrelaible. Plans which include them are broken. The cycle is promises followed by disappointments.
  • Your alcoholic husband or alcoholic wife is sexually promiscuous. Even worse, they do not feel remorse  over their sexual affairs when they are deep in their alcohol addiction. They have a strong feeling of entitlement.

Mary is a 35 year old I treat that is married to an alcoholic. She found out her husband was cheating on her when she got a sexually transmitted disease. She was absolutely mortified. She felt hurt and betrayed at the deepest level. She had been married to Greg for 10 years and has 2 children with him. She felt she had done everything to support him. What did she do?

She left him and took the kids.

This was just the wake up call he needed to face his alcohol dependency. After a year of sobriety, they got back together and she is working on forgiving him.
