I feel that 2 "normal" people s relationship are difficult enough. JMHO. BE WELL
Well said. I got in a relationship with my current boyfriend while I was actively drinking and getting worse. When I went into recovery we almost broke up because we just clashed non stop but thanks to AA and the grace of God we have managed to work things out and life is pretty darn good today. Don't get me wrong we still have little tiffs and once in a while a big argument over something ridiculous, but so does everyone else in the world so that's alright. Lol.
