I realized I forgot to share the post I wrote for TheFix.com: “Marriage Protection: What To Do If the Inlaws Are Alcoholic” from last year!
This is a timely post for the Christmas season, when everyone is deciding when, why, and how to see family. Because when you have emotional or substance abuse in the family, those decisions are a lot harder to make.
In the post, I share my husband and my’s experience of his sister’s alcoholism and his family dysfunction, as well as three ideas for interacting with the family while setting boundaries. I’d love to hear your thoughts!
