Is it possible to get your marriage back after a spouse’s struggle with addiction?

1- Treat your marriage like a new relationship. The person you fell in love with in the beginning of your relationship may never come back but that means, neither will the monster who came out during it. 

2- Recognize that you’re no longer “one” but two separate people. The Bible teaches that when a man and wife are joined they, “Become one flesh” with one another (Gen. 2:24). Well, addiction breaks your “oneness”. You’re now two people in completely different places and you’ll need to meet in the middle (and hopefully, get busy becoming one flesh again!).
