Recovered after rehab from alcoholism, having gastro paresis and mesenteric artery syndrome, abusive husband for divorce. Suggestions ?

Hi my name is Ann and I`m so sad and worried about my daughter and four year old grand daughter. two years ago my daughter collapsed from alcoholism and after huge prayer and rehab . overcame this disease in our family. Now she has gastro paresis and mesenteric artery syndrone so a lot of symptoms resemble past lethargy and her husband is being verbally abusive at times and is definately triggered by past. His Dad, who he works with is the same way with him. At this time it looks like divorce or separation and my grandaughter is so distraught and cries easily. Her Dad does not want to go to alanon or counselling. He is a workaholic. What are your suggestions? We have been thru the terrible affects of divorce thru her Dad and my other children and am distraught to have 2nd daughter be in this mess. Her husband smokes pot every day at end of day. Thankyou

it's very unfortunate for anyone to be in this situation. if her husband is not ready for counselling, only way left is regular counselling sessions of your daughter. Now it's time for her to overcome and even compensate for her past mistakes. During counselling whe will learn dealing with a difficult husband. It is possible that after some duration of her imporved behaviour, husband will start noticing it and may change himself. This will be very difficult for your daughter,but it is the only and best way to deal with this situation. She should make a sincere effort to save her marriage for future of her daughter. In your story it appears that her husband's abusiveness is due to past mistakes of your daughter, so chances are very fair that he will be ready to accept changes in her to save this marriage.
best of luck for you and your family
