Dating your spouse

Perhaps the relationship can be saved with some effort. "These guys are bad news," they say, "so get out." But each of the women justifies their partner's actions.
Does he tell you that you'll never be able to find someone else? If he's unwilling to seek professional help and stay straight, your situation will not improve until you pack up and go. But if he needs to constantly work them out with new-found friends instead of you, it may not be the right relationship for either of you. A relationship involves two people, each with his or her own voice.
