He was binge drinking all night, remember? This is someone for whom alcohol has become a poison. He needs to go through AA before you agree to marry him. An alcoholic can become a dry drunk for an extended period but eventually he will go back to it because he has not faced his demons.

You can do this Cool. Not just for you but for your children.

3 adult children
Divorced - he was a serial adulterer
Now remarried, thank you MB
