“We have been together for almost five years now, off and on,” she said. “The only times that we were off was when I was not in a healthy state of mind, or he was like, ‘I can’t be with you until you get sober. I can’t enable what you’re doing right now.’… So I did, and then that made our relationship so much stronger.”
