Here is the problem left 1 one marriage after the husband drinking stopped. His wife writes "I've got a good husband, one o the best, and I love him very much "We have been married nearly 1 years. He dran quite » bit befor we were marrie and kept it afterward. But as our children grev old enough to no tice tilings I fi nally p e rsuade my husband tha we couldn't giv them the righ Ruth Milletl kind of home un less he quit stopping at a taver; every night on his way home from work. . "I grew up in a home 'where m father's drinking created all kind of problems and unhappiness—an I couldn't bear to see my own chil dren go through the same kind o childhood. "My husband promised to qui drinking and he did. We joined church and have been fairly a'ctiv in church activities. It may seem as though I haven't any problem and I guess I wouldn't have if didn't love my husband so much that his happiness is of deep con cern to me. "Here's the catch.

Then he'll go on to talk of the friends he vised to have who would have dont anything In tht world for him. "That'i not how I remember them, of course. I remember all the times they borrowed money, had to be put up for the night because they were afraid to go home, their rough talk when they were drinking, etc. "But I don't bring that up because I don't want to start quarreling over something that Is past. "What keeps worrying me is that I don't want my husband to become frustrated and to feel caged, or feel sorry he ever married and look upon his family as a burden. I've seen men like that." Apparently it isn't the drinking your husband misses but the companionship he found in taverns and believes doesn't exist anywhere else Perhaps you can help him find that companionship in other places On hunting trips, fishing ,on a goll course, at ball games, anywhere thi he can get away with a group of men.
