Re: How important is attraction?
Alcoholism is unfortunately fairly common, I've seen a fair amount of it and how it affects couples in my time.
It could be that W drove H to drink, or H's drinking drove W away, I've seen it go both ways.
I honestly don't know enough to offer an opinion, I've seen as many stay sober as I have seen fall off the wagon again.
