          Man Says Wife’s Alcoholism ‘Has Completely Destroyed Our Family’


          May 5, 2017

          Wes says his wife, Aundrea’s, alcoholism has “completely destroyed” their family. He says the former PTA mom and preschool teacher lies to him daily and refuses to get a job because it would “cut into her drinking time.”

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Family member or friend causing ridiculous drama?

          “I have found hundreds of bottles and boxes of wine and liquor bottles over the years, and just last month, I found 10 boxes of wine under our bed,” Wes says. “I’ve come home before from work and she’s passed out on the sofa. One time, I walked in the bathroom and found her passed out underwater in the bathtub. So I pulled her out thinking that she was dead.”

          Wes also says that Aundrea has “ruined” them financially, totaling two cars, costing over $100,00 in lawyers, fines, doctors and counseling, and he had to use their house for collateral for her bond when she got a DUI.

          “It makes me so angry that I have to protect myself from my own wife,” Wes says. “We’re all past being angry; we’re numb at this point.”
