Dear Abby: My husband and I are going on 19 years of marriage and have three teenage girls. We have had multiple rounds of marriage counseling, mostly with good results, although the benefits seem to be short-lived. Most of our problems have stemmed from my husband’s drinking or smoking pot. He’s not abusive, he’s a good provider, but he just likes to get high. Thank God, it’s not often, but I’m not, nor have I ever been, OK with it.

Our girls recently found his pot stash and helped themselves. When I questioned them about where they got it, they admitted they found their dad’s stash. For me, this is the last straw. How can I teach my kids this is not OK when their dad’s actions say otherwise? I’m now made out to be the prude since apparently I’m “no fun.”
