Hello again Purple,
Sorry to hear about all this. One can only do the best one can in any problem situation, and make the best decisions and choices one can given the information available to us. From my years of clinical experience, and personal experience of alcoholics in my own life, they rarely change, and then not without admitting sincerely to themselves and their family, what their problem is,and without proper expert help. DO get legal advice to ensure that the best interests of you and the children are protected, and that he pays maintenance for the children until they are adult, which may constrain his drinking budget.
Slight delay : I heard voices in my back garden, & saw 2 trespassers arguing with each other, set off the panic alarm, waited for the security guys who searched, and now back and settled. As I was about to say, we'd all like certainty, but (obviously !) can't predict what'll happen next.
