I have been married 18 years. My husband and I have always partied and had a great time. Last December, he got fired from his job for an alcohol related incident at the company Christmas party. He has since then quit drinking, tabacco and swearing and gone to AA meetings. Good for him, I am very proud. But my problem is that he has totally changed. He has become VERY involved in the church (which is not a bad thing), and just talks different, but he is not the person I fell in love with. We were both in the Navy over 20 years...I married a sailor. I, on the other hand, have not changed. I still drink and socialize and do the same things we have always done together. Whenever I do this, he gets very angry and can't understand why I HAVE to go out. I can't understand how HE can't understand this seeing as I have been doing this for a long while! I feel our marriage is heading for disaster. I am lonely. I've lost my best friend. Please someone, give me some advice.
