I agree that I would let it go. It sounds like he didn’t actually do anything wrong besides acted drunk. It happens. As long as this isn’t a pattern, which you said it isn’t. Your husband won’t be so drunk at every family event, so your family will know it’s just a one-time thing and will let it go.

He needs to apologize and make sure that won’t happen again somewhere in the future

Thanks for the advice bees. I talked to Darling Husband about it and we agreed in the future we will keep drinking at family get togethers to a minimum. He apologized to my mom who hosted and her response was “Oh I wasn’t worried about it at all! And I love you guys!” Still anxious me can’t help wonder if she’s faking, or if she really wasn’t bothered at all. I know we can’t look into people’s heads to find out what they’re really thinking but I so wish I could because I lose sleep over it!

anonagrsta : He apologized. Your mom said it wasn’t actually a problem. And you’re losing sleep over it…?

Bee–surely you have overindulged at some point in your life. And surely, if your mother had a big issue or concern with this she would have reached out to you. Let it go.

Aw, geez, if I had a dollar for every time I overdid it on the alcohol and made a complete ass of myself. Of course, that was way back in my misspent youth. I am quite respectable these days. Most of the time.
If this was a one off event, for the love of all that’s chocolate, let it go. Your husband has made amends as best he could.
What do you still need for him to do?

I know this girl (was NOT me) who got so shitfaced at a very large family get together (I’m talking relatives she hadn’t seen in years/grand-parents…everybody) that she ended up pissing on the living room floor because she drunkenly thought it was the toilet. She then proceeded to strip off her clothes and pass out on the couch. Her family was PISSED the next day but ultimately laughed it off and now it’s a running joke. Let it go, who cares…if I had a dime for everytime I drank too much and was annoying I would be a millionare.

I agree with the PP’s on letting it go. Stop loosing sleep over it. I’m sure your mother wasn’t faking since it was a one time thing. I don’t know about your mother, but mine is brutally honest. So if someone I was dating or a husband or whatever did something she didn’t like, she would be the first to tell me so.
Anyway, maybe my family isn’t normal, but pretty much every family event we are all pretty tipsy and idiotic hahah. Actually, one party my mom hosted someone crapped all over her bathroom!! It’s like a joke now. I mean there was litterally crap EVERYWHERE.
