My husband and I went through a roller coaster ride before we got married. Gambling, alcohol, hooking up with girls and using illegal drugs were part of his daily routine. But that was 20 years ago. Now we have 2 adorable children, we all pray together, go to church regularly, and are living peacefully with God. AMA!
We met in 1995. We were classmates then and became a couple for two months. But when I heard from a friend that he's seeing his ex-girlfriend during after-school basketball games, I broke up with him. I noticed after, that he would always absent himself from class to join his friends and I knew that he's into drugs when everytime that he would attend our class, he showed signs of drugs and alcohol intoxication. He did not perform well during the school year so his mother decided to transfer him to another school. On our last day in school, he talked to me and told me that he will come back. We did not see each other for two years, he continued with his vices and we both have other relationships then. But in 1998, he transferred back to our school and after graduation, we were reunited. But he still struggled with gambling, drugs and alcohol. It had been a long distance relationship. There are times that I would find notes from a girl in his things, would see girls flirting around with him, witness his gambling games, hang-out with his friends and their mistresses and other girlfriends, and his many other activities that I would only knew of from his mother, concerned friends and instinct. But in all of those years, I felt his love and genuine care for me and in 2008, we decided to get married though his ways have not really changed. We struggled emotionally, physically and financially as a family and it was during that time that we decided to go to church regularly. We found solace in the church, and decided to be baptized in 2013. It was then that he has truly left his vices, and became a responsible and loving father and husband. Ask me anything :)
