What are the obligations of a wife of an alcoholic husband when they have small children? Must she leave or kick him out in order to protect the kids?

Hi,

If the children need to be protected, then of course, he needs to go. I suggest that you get some professional help on this. You might also check with Al-Anon. You are in my prayers.
