(#257) Bob L (Riverside, CA)
9/2/1995 in Nashville, TN  EVENT: 14th Music City Roundup  TYPE: Al-Anon, Male, Story

29 years in Al-Anon, Bob came in before his wife's sobriety and found that he could find peace of mind rather she was drinking or not.

He came in with 22 years of marriage with nothing left - he hated and loathed her with no respect or trust on either side.

A healing has taken place over the years and were married 51 years at the time of this talk.

His wife has been his best teacher.

Today his life is so complete that when she is away he does not miss her because he is enough on his own right here right now.

He stayed in the marriage not because he was a noble person. He stayed because he was a coward that stemmed from events related to his parents divorce.

He shares about how their son lived with AIDS for an additional 18 months at their home. He told his son that he did not understand his lifestyle but that did not mean he did not love him.
