My husband struggled with alcoholism during the first few years of our marriage. He was not a Christian Scientist and had not asked for Christian Science treatment, so I prayed for myself daily to see the man of God’s creating—to see beyond the material appearance and to see the good, pure man I had married. On numerous occasions I also called on a Christian Science practitioner to pray for me, but the problem continued.
After a night out, my husband would remember nothing from the night before except what Mary Baker Eddy describes in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures as “a suffering inconceivably terrible to man’s self-respect” (p. 407). I thought about leaving him, and even visited a lawyer, but I just couldn’t do it.
