Dear Dorothy Dix: Divorce for a flimsy reason has no tolerance of mine, but there are certain sad situations that call for drastic measures, and I am up against such a problem. My husband is an alcoholic. I have been advised to treat him as a sick man and not as an erring husband. I have suffered every indignity at his hands, even to being knocked down by him before my children.
Once I got him to take an interest in Alcoholics Anoymous and
he attended two meetings, but that ended it. I have recently persuaded him to see a leading psychiatrist dealing with alcoholics and tl\ere seems to be an improvement already. There has been less drinking and not so often.
When he doesn’t drink, he is a splendid personality, but when he drinks he is so brutal he could, and might, easily kill me. Do you think that if this present attempt at the solution of the problem does not succeed that I would be justified in a separation? But, unfortunately, even divorce might not solve anything, for he is devoted to all of us and would no doubt return from time to time to us and wrant to be taken back. But, on the other hand, if I continue to bear with him, our home atmosphere is stormy, unhappy and rough, no place for children to be brought up in.
What shall I do? Either way is a bitter pill to swallow.
Answer: You sign yourself
wrongly. You seem to have had the patience of Job in bearing with your unfortunate husband.
