I've been married to my husband for two years, known him for 7 years total. We have a 2 yr old daughter and he's only been in her life for 2 month and off & on while in rehab. He's been in and out of jail, rehab and his parents are codependent on him so they do everything in there power to bring him back home so he can work for his parents business. His mother is his chief enabler and will do anything for her son (ANYTHING). I truly love my husband when he is sober, last time he used he got very angry that I called the cops on him. He got put in jail and now his parents dislike me. After being locked up for 90 days he is getting out on Tuesday, I have not modified the restraining order but I really want to because I miss him and I don't want him to go back to his home town ( I feel its really bad for his sobriety). His parents say if I love him I will do anything to be his support and to be with him. My parents feel that I should leave the restraining order in place and let him prove his sobriety. Its so hard for me because all I want at the end of the night is to be right next to my husband, but at the same time I want what's best for my daughter (her safety). My marriage will be in danger if I don't modify the restraining order because his parents are putting stuff in his head. This is just so hard for me, its hard loving an addict and loving his family that are so passive to me. No one wants us together, not his addiction, not my parents, not his parents but I love him. I always pray that God makes him become the husband and father my daughter and I need. But what do I really do? Is there even hope for a meth addict to sober up if his parents buy him everything he wants and have his back even when he does wrong? Do I listen to my parents or give him one more chance?
