An interesting and somber reminder of why God tells us to not be unequally yoked.
A sad story. I'm wondering why you chose John Boy for the husband's name as that is a name beloved my many who watched Home on the Prarie. You have a strong theme -- addiction trumps intimacy. I am a little uncomfortable with the wife's submission though. You left her in a hopeless state! Not enough about how she managed any kind of a life. Showing how God supplies grace or how one can experience joy despite making a bad choice would be encouraging.
Your title is extremely well-chosen for such a relentlessly sad - but too frequently repeated - story.
I have a close friend who is an alcoholic. I've been battling this with her for the past 3 years. She is a great person, but the alcohol is killing all that's great about her. Sometimes I wonder if she'll ever be free. I can relate to this story because it doesn't tie everything up into a pretty package. Maybe if this story continued, we would find a happy ending at the end. I'm hoping the same for my friend.
