Five times seven times she refused to learn to drive with all sorts of reasons, even though she had a car for a few years, but in the end, that was the reason she wanted him to be more responsible and reduce drinking.
That is the situation of Ms. Ly in Ho Chi Minh City and many other wives whose husbands like to gather with friends to drink, sometimes because of hobbies or unavoidable drinking situations.
In the group of Ms. Ly’s friends, there is a couple in the same high school, so they often go on a date, but after observing the couple for a while, they see that every time the end of the game, the wife is forced to take the wheel to bring her husband home She had to think about going to driving school because she accidentally helped her husband drink more.
