Can I ask for a talaq or go for a fasakh if my husband drinks alcohol.The drinking is a major problem in our marriage and relationship with one another.I’m at a stage where I cannot tolerate him sometimes because I’ve lost all my respect for him.He becomes verbally abusive when he’s drunk and I decided to rather ignore him than try and fight a battle that I’m not going to win.He drinks once or twice a week and would then come home in the early hours of the morning.I have 2 sons and we argue infront of them alot.When he sobers up the next day he expects me to always forgive him.There are many other things that I have endured in our 13 years together but the drinking has taken it’s toll on me now.I love my husband and hates what he’s doing to himself and his family.But I also cannot sit and watch him ruin me and my children.He also doesn’t want to leave because he says he cannot live his life without me and the kids.He wants me to be patient with him and says that he will stop soon.What do I do ?

Shukran
