The title of Chapter 6 of He’s Just Not That Into You is “He’s Just Not That Into You If He Only Wants to See You When He’s Drunk.”
How does this chapter pertain to my marriage? Oh, dear, dear, dear me. Friends, this isn’t good. While my husband is not a raging alcoholic, he has at times abused alcohol.
Once when we were dating, I considered breaking up. He got drunk and begged me to promise that I would marry him. Stupid me, I thought he was cute.
Once when were married, he got drunk and frightened me so badly that I locked myself in my daughter’s bedroom to get away from him. Stupid me, I should have called the cops.
See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another in the fear of God.”
~Ephesians 5:15-21 NKJ
