Best thing you can do (and I know it sounds mean) is tell him that you won't allow him to come to your house if he's been drinking. Alcohol + depression is a terrible mix. Does he have regular meds? Please go pick up his wife for him.

Sushi Jkath is right... follow her advice...

It is good that he has a friend that cares about him.

He takes his meds. Not sure what they are but right now he is FAST asleep on my couch. (hey its Italian leather! ). But when he wakes up...... I dont know if I should let him go and get his wife. I think he feels Im more attractive and is a bit jealous. Oh Boy. This guy has been trhough the ringer. But I think I should let him drive. ARGH.

you should NOT let him drive if he's been drinking...!!!!! Think of how you'd both feel if something were to happen to him (or someone) else if he were drunk behind the wheel.

You can drive him over there if you need too...

Do NOT let him drive in an hour to go get his wife. How would you feel if he caused an accident causing harm to others??? If he's conscious (but jealous) there's no reason he can't ride WITH you.

I agree with you both. But if he forces his way out then what do I do?!
