Retired from life (husband is alcoholic)
Wow, looks like I have some company.
My husband decided to retire about 5 years ago at the age of 54. Yep, you got that right - and no he couldn't afford it. He just wanted to.
So, instead of getting a lucrative contract position to pad the coffers, he gets a part-time job very below his skill set.
The first 2 years were not too horrible; however, the last 2 have been terrible.
I am now saddled with 80% of the bills, child-rearing, most all the cleaning, most all meal prep and I have to work full time and take care of a parent with dementia.
Oh, and the most important thing - he is a functional alcoholic that has stopped functioning. So he has climbed into a bottle, leaves the burners on, falls down, does weird things.
After 16 years of marriage, I am done.
