Reverse Electra complex (female version of Oedipus complex), everything that could remind me of my father must be avoided. Any man with alcohol smell in his breath and unable to express his feelings is out. He was not a bad person. He was not violent. He was a frustrated person and an unsuccessful artist. He tried to use the alcohol to communicate with us. He only would show us some love if he was drunk. Raised to be strong and not talk about feelings, he used to drown his sorrows in booze. Just one shot to relax! He drank himself to death. How many men do the same? No relationship in the world should do that. Socially accepted, alcohol is a marriage wrecker. Ironically, it is also responsible for keeping many relationships. How can one stand the boredom sober?
