long time since i've been here

Well,my last visit here was 3/07- long time. AH got sober 15 monthes ago- life has been great- we sold our little house and bought our dream home 1 month ago - he continue meetings and has been working as amanager at a gym (he's really into working out) 15 mths is the longest he's ever been sober- then Sat. he was mowing the yard- and somehow decided he wanted a beer- I was at work- so now it's on- all over again. I found a receipt for a 5th of Jack Daniels on the table- he i a planner, I guess he knew he's need something to drink for sunday when you can't buy liquor.
I told him he has 2 choices- get sober or get out- heres my big problem- I told you we just bought our dream home- well ALL the moneyweput in this house camefrom selling our old house (which was mine before we met.)- $67,500.00 we have put toward this house, we still have 14,000.00 in a joint account and i am terrified he'll blow it all- i am scared if I divorce him i'll lose my house and 1/2 of (my) money that was put into it- I am scared for our kids- I can't do this again-

Ellima (((()))) Oh that is so sad to hear. I would probably get to the lawyer and see what's what. Please also get to Alanon for yourself and your kids. I admire you for not going through this again and that you are putting your kids first. I am so so sorry nobody deserves this. Take care and keep posting.

I'm sorry things have gotten crazy.

Taking some practical steps to protect yourself financially and legally might help you feel better. You could open a separate bank account and put money in there. Talk to a lawyer and find out what your options are. Just gathering knowledge will help you reach decisions.
