“My Husband Was Like A Dry Drunk” Rebecca Crews on Terry’s Addictive Behaviors
In another clip from this weekend’s upcoming episode of “Black Love,” Terry and Rebecca Crews discuss the challenges they overcame in their marriage. Terry starts by describing his mentality toward conflict in marriage and how he thought that because they were in love everything would work out.
“When we got married I had this grand thing of ‘It’s all going to work out. This is how love is.’ Then all of sudden, she’d say something I didn’t like. I was like, ‘Ok, you’re messing up the picture.’ Anytime I felt sad, I would just buy something. And she was like, ‘We can’t afford this.’ This new tv, this new VCR, these clothes, how are we going to pay for this?’ And I was like, ‘I’m going pro. It’s going to work.’ As long as I can get rid of the pain now, we’ll just pay later. “
Rebecca shared how she should have paid more attention to his upbringing in anticipation of what it would be like to be married to him.
Rebecca: “I realize I should have done more homework on addiction and children of addiction. Because I joke now that my husband was like a dry drunk He was addicted to everything else. To exercise, to spending, activity. He always had to be doing something like an adrenaline junkie. “
