- Wedding: May 2013
I seriously thought about going anonymous, but I did not. I am so angry right now I can barely type.
My FI and I have been together for almost 8 years, since I was 19 and he was 20. We are now 27 and 28.
Neither of us partied in college or while we were underage. With the exception of one drunken night in Vegas (about 3 years ago), we do not drink more than 2-3 drinks a month.
Well, FI’s brother just turned 21 about a week ago. His brother has been partying since he was 18 and the only difference is now he can go to a bar.
My FI has always been responsible, sensible and the rationale one when he hangs out with his friend (his Best Man) and his brother.
Tonight, they decided to go to happy hour around 5pm. I was fine with that. He said they would be home around 6:30pm. Well, 6:30 passed, then 7:30, 8:30 and finally it got to 9:30pm. I tried calling, texting, calling his brother/friend, everything. No response.
Around 9:45pm, he showed up with his friend and brother. He was covered in vomit, was staggering and immediately went to the bathroom to throw up. He is passed out on the bathroom floor right now. I am checking on him every few minutes to make sure he is safe.
I am livid! Not only is he beyond drunk, but he rode with his friend who had also been drinking. He has never done this before, I don’t understand. I am so confused, hurt, angry.
I am actually crying right now, and I never cry. I honestly do not understand how or why this happened. We are only a few months away from getting married and now he decides to be immature???!?!?
I know this was one incident, but it was a poor decision that could have turned deadly. Drunk driving is dangerous and so is alcohol poisoning.
I don’t even know what to say to him when he wakes up in the morning. This has never been a problem and I am at a loss for words.
