Summary This article looks at some of the experiences of women who care for alcoholic and drug addicted men. Through biographical interviews it describes how this group of women has dealt with the problems which women have to confront in the face of difficulties with the health and welfare systems, as well as their own expectations of what it means to be good wives and partners in very stressful situations. The article argues that the normative expectations of women as wives and mothers is to care for families, and while there is now an extensive literature on women's caring, the group of women described in these pages is generally ignored by this same literature.
