DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been married nine years and have four children, ages 5, 3, 2 and 9 months. For the past three years, my husband has been attending a weeklong music festival where he camps with a group of friends, many of whom are single. He met most of them attending this particular fest.

When they are at these shows, they partake in psychedelics and other party drugs. The arena is wild, with scantily clad women and people partying to the fullest. I have explained to him how this bothers me and that I don't believe it's the best environment for a married man and father of four small children. I feel it threatens our marriage. He says I can "come if I want," but that I'd need to find child care for the week (an option we don't have since losing our parents).

In truth, I feel like a burden to him, and he prefers going solo to "get a release" from the everyday responsibilities of our life together. Each year, I ask him not to go, but he does it anyway. I'd greatly appreciate your insight about this. -- LEFT BEHIND IN REAL LIFE
