Dear AVENUE - My Wife is Drinking Too Much

posted on November 16, 2017 posted in Blog


My wife and I have been married for 24 years and both our children have left home. Over the last two to three years, since our youngest moved out, my wife’s drinking has increased dramatically.  Looking back, she always had a tendency to go too far, whether we were at parties or out with friends but I don’t think she drank alone at home.  Nowadays when I get home from work, she has already had a few and is very argumentative.  I’ve tried talking to her about it but she gets furious and it ends in a huge fight with her threatening to leave me.  It’s getting so bad, part of me wishes she would leave but when she is sober, we get along well.  I just don’t know what to do, please help.
