Inlaws think I beat husband
My husband has a drinking problem, he doesn't admit to it. I have talked
to his parents about it and they agreed to stop having beer there, but
they didn't follow thru with it.
We had went over there one evening. I let him have 2 beers and he promised
he wouldn't drink anymore, He opened one in front of me. So I got mad
and told him I was leaving.
When he got into the car I speed off and I punched the arm rest in the
car a few times, they all saw it. His sister called me and all the hard
feelings we have towards each other and the family came out. Now I'm embarrassed,
they all still think I hit him and theirs a lot of unresolved issues.
Please help how do I get passed this, without feeling like everyone hates
There's two separate issues here.
1. The hitting thing - that's simple; your husband just tells them the
2. The bigger issue is whether the marriage is going to survive, and
it isn't if you don't both face your problems. You've told us his, but
If your husband has a drinking problem you - and he - need help in sorting
it. Punching armrests suggests you have some problems, as does the row
with S-in-law, and their willingness to believe you hit him.
You need to get counselling, preferably together. If you both feel the
marriage is worth it.
