Our expert says:
OK, love may not be compulsory at this stage. But its a bit awkward if for years you have insisted that his drinking was the root of all the problems and he must stop, and now you feel appalled in some ways once he has stopped. It;s reminiscent of the old story of the habitual drunk who went home sober one night, and his dog didn't recognize him, and bit him.
If he manages to stay sober, he will be in significant ways, a different man from the one you have lived with in recent years. Stay a while and see who he now is.
And though he has managed a period of dryness, don't chance all of this my hoping it all just works out. See a marriage / couples counsellor together to work on all these issues, including support for him to enable him to stay dry.
Don't make a decision now, positive or negative, that is forever - but maybe for 6 or 12 months, depending on him staying dry, and on the outsome of the counselling
