  • If she loves him, she needs to stay and try to get him help. But I agree with pp that if it starts to get abusive, then thats the time to leave. She needs to get him away from those people that shoot them up. If he continues to be around them, things are not going to change. What kind of injury does he have?

  • I personally, if he doesn't want help, would leave. Maybe that will wake him up.

  • If he doesn't want help i would kick him out, divorce him and keep him away from our kids. Our kids don't need to put up with that shit.

  • Been in some similar situation I adviced her to leave. If he doesn't want help thing will go down and down. That's what happen to my daughter bio-dad. He was a great college student going for physcology but he started taking pills, plus smoking pot and thing went from bad to worse. He abused me physically while pregnant and I had to leave. Now he is so fuck up from all the drug he is mentally disable by the social security. We have no contact whatsoever. Good luck to your friend.

  • that is the only prob she has with leaving is that he treats her like a queen. he cooks, cleans helps with the kids and will wait on her hand and foot if she would let him. i mean everybody envies her life because he is such a wonderful man but he just has that one prob and he told her he would quit , but she has caught him doing it anyway. what about involentery commitment

  • Sometimes no matter how much you love someone you have to walk away.
