This past weekend we went to a ski resort. When we checked into our room I noticed the usual small bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion in the bathroom. Ten minutes later I went in there and noticed the bottles were gone. I asked my husband about them and he said he put them in his shaving kit. (He already has a bag at home filled with these bottles.) I told him I needed them and removed them from the kit. Yes, I know it is common for people to take those little bottles from hotels, but taking them ten minutes after check-in seems abnormal to me, especially when there is a bag full at home.
This last incident is the tipping point for me and has made me realize (or face the fact) that he has a problem. I should mention that he is a recovering alcoholic who has not had a drink in 16 years. Could there be a connection? This is weighing on me and I am afraid our marriage is suffering because of it. I keep the door to his personal room closed so I do not have to see the mess, but every time I go in the storage room to do the laundry I am confronted with still another mess and I get very angry. I think it is time to confront him. How do I do this without jeopardizing our relationship?
