June 2013: The best is yet to come
With a sponsor's kick and a few Steps, his marriage got a lot better
When I was about 20 years sober I was whining to my sponsor about my wife criticizing me. “I have been listening to this for a long time,” he said. “Either accept the woman as she is or divorce her.”
While I was stunned for the moment, my sponsor had kicked me to a higher spiritual level in my marriage. I took his advice and did my best to give her unconditional love, as I would a fellow AA member. This effort continued for the rest of our marriage, till her death.
