I have posted before regarding the trials and tribulations of my dh and family issues.

Can you not get the brakes done on your car by yourself?

I don't think you're being selfish but your husband's relationship with his father right now is paramount (for him). For him, the choice is to spend necessary quality time with his father who has very little time left in his life... Or... Chores for his family that he doesn't get along with. Of course he's going to choose his father.

Is there any compromise you can come to? Having him home ONE day a week...?

I imagine your sons are so troubled directly because of your marriage. There seems to be no harmony at home. No wonder you have a son who is getting started on a life of drugs... He doesn't know how else to cope. You can get him treatment but the fact is that his behavior is a result of his life being in chaos. That is how bad things are for him. If he gets treatment, his home life is still going to be chaos. He may or may not have an addictive personality by nature, but human beings who are under tremendous stress and pressure WILL find a way to cope with it, whether that method is healthy or unhealthy. He needs a stable life that makes him feel comfortable, even if he gets treatment.

I'm sorry I didn't realize the relationship problem solving board was for first time posters and one could not return for additional or future advice.

Hi;

It does sound like there is no harmony in

You can come here as often as you feel like.

However, you have posted here before.

I won't be here for a bit to reply, but I wanted to post the links to your previous posts so those that are responding are able to have a better understanding of your relationship or refresh themselves, whichever they need.

I think my 2nd DH really didn't like my DD that much.
