My wife has a high tolerance for alcohol and her job requires her to eat and drink a lot in restaurants to maintain her network. I understand that but sometimes I feel bored.
I am 36 years old and my wife is 35 years old. We have been married for 13 years and have two sons. As my wife got married and had children at a very young age, she only started focusing on building her career in recent years.
My wife joined her current company 10 years ago and was promoted to assistant manager of her department. Her job requires her to maintain her network, so she goes out to eat and drink with her colleagues and business partners between two and three times a week.
She has a high tolerance for alcohol and often returns home sober, even after drinking five to six bottles of beer.
I understand this since I recognize that drinking helps a lot at work, even though I rarely drink because I don’t like alcohol.
But frequent drinking has become a habit of my wife, and she also drinks at home sometimes. I’m afraid this will become a lifelong habit that could harm my wife’s health. Sometimes I also feel annoyed seeing her drink like a man.
I tried to encourage her to stop drinking, but she said it wasn’t possible because of her job.
What should I do?
