Is this the beginning

Posted by Shermie89 on 15 August 2017.

My husband and I got married last year in August and during our courtship I knew he drank alcohol but it was never on a regular basis. We have been faced with a number of problems during our first year of marriage. Early January i noticed a change in my husband's behaviour especially after a long time friend's marriage ended. He became frustrated more when we were rejected by a number of churches in our community. His friend is rarely sober because he does manual work which he can do even when drunk. He also does coke and other drugs he can get his hands on. My husband went to his aid however over the last few months his drinking has increased. He is angry all the time and shouts alot abt how unfair the world is to him. I love my husband very much and am worrried his friend is influencing his behaviour which explains the changes. I live in an isolated town where i dont know anyone to talk to for support. Its causes me anxiety and depression and i fear my marriage is falling apart. Like my title, is this the beginning of an endless cycle.
