Ahhhh, this is heart-breaking! Even a 7 year old knows right from wrong; 'come home and be a husband and father to this family'. Bless her heart!

You sound as if you are setting boundaries for yourself and your kids...and of course he is not going to like that one bit. My RAH doesn't like it either. But he now knows I am serious and he doesn't question the boundaries. When he spews anger at me sideways because of those boundaries, I politely remove myself from the vicinity. Going home to my own house is such an amazing luxury! I've had years of the worst of him. For now, I only want to be around the best of him. He can keep all the yucky parts to himself and his AA sponsor.

Setting the boundary of not wanting to be married to an active alcoholic is healthy for you and your children. Stay strong...the rest is up to him now.
