Ask Amy: Wife is riding the tilt-a-whirl of husband’s addiction
Dear Amy: I am married to an addict.
He recently completed treatment for a third time.
When he came home from rehab, there was a distance between us. I noticed it almost immediately.
I asked him if he had been talking to another woman, and he denied it.
Being with an addict, I've been trained to know when something's not right.
I invaded his privacy and went through some of his stuff.
I found call records that he's been talking to a 20-year-old girl (14 years younger than him). I was livid.
I freaked out on him and gave him an ultimatum. I said, “Cut it off with her, or leave.”
That didn't go well, and I ended up begging him to stay with me.
Now I am unsure if he really wants to be with me.
