1.) She needs to cut back on the drinking. She doesn't have to quit, just stop drinking as much.
2.) If you truly love her, then why does she have to quit her job? So you're set to support her and the children. Congratulations! But, do you really think she wants to ask you for every penny she spends? Maybe being a little independent is part of her personality. If so, and if you really love her, then you shouldn't ask her to change.
3.) You both need to calmly and maturely discuss your problems together and find a way to compromise. It won't be easy but it will be worth it!
Where ever u go, there u are. The old adage has depth. Think on it.
