My dh and I have been married for just over a year and TTC for the last 9 months, but I am starting to have 2nd thoughts about TTC, not that I don't want a baby, I want to be a mother more than anything, I am crying as i type this! But it has recently become obvious to me that dh has a drinking prob, he doesn't drink often but if he has 2 drinks its like he cann't stop and he does stupid things when he is drunk, New Years he drove when I begged him not to cuz he couldn't walk straight, I didn't get in the car w/ him so I wasn't in danger but I don't want to wind up a single mom, and more importantly I don't want my future kids to loose 1 or both parents so foolishly. I am starting to feel like this may be a really bad situation to bring a child into, and the thought of going back on the pill long term or perm is killing me. Please don't bash I really need honest outside opinions.

Thanks for the honesty ladies, I just needed to be reassured that I am not just overreacting like dh thinks I am, that & cruelly depriving him of children, he's the one depriving me! I am the 1 who has done nothing wrong & still shares in the consequences, & I had to be responsible 1 & make this decision without his support! Sorry for the rant, feeling a lil frustrated, thanks again I really needed to hear that others felt the same as me about my situation! Bless you all!
