Greg has been married three times, to two different women. He married his first wife twice. It seemed to him that all his relationships with women would end the same way; they would leave after he put his heart and soul into trying to make their lives better. He felt the only way he could earn love was to completely devote himself to taking care of “her” – whoever “her” happened to be. It lead to a life of isolation, and not until did he enter recovery could he see that his issues with women stemmed from his unhealthy relationship with his mother.
