My marriage has hit a brick wall have a three year old son, husband drinks, he doesnt help me with W, only the fun stuff, he doesnt discipline , i do. we argue alot and in front of W, As the argument has come from me, w runs to his dad. I want to leave but know is going to be a struggle, w won't to leave his dad. I had to go for a drive last night as w wasn't listening to me and his dad was not helping. This is killing me, I love w, he is my life!

Well I think you really need to sit down and think about where you want to be in one year, I know its VERY hard. Kids are resilient. W will bounce back. He will still be able too see his dad. Do you really want to leave your husband? Have you tried counseling? Talking to a priest? What about a trial separation? Maybe if you explain to your husband that you are leaving if he doesn't start pitching in he will change. What about talking to his parents? All I know is that you cant keep going on like this for many reasons. The biggest is you will have no control over your child and you will lose your own sanity and self. You don't want any of that to happen! You shouldn't be made out to be the bad guy that's NOT fair. I hate to say this to anyone but if you have a safe place to go and you have the ways and the means to survive and he wont agree to change then you have no other options but to leave. I have to say I am not telling you what to do even if it sounds that way. This is what I would do. I should be wording all of this better. Please let me know if this helps or if you need to talk you can send Your in my thoughts!!!! Liv
