The pain of marital break-up is felt deeply by the children, when parents fight the pain is aggravated and nothing aggravates anger like alcohol.

Anger and Alcohol (NaPoWriMo Day 10) on YouTube

Alcohol and Anger
Alcohol is often combustible;
Combustible, it will fuel anger
And steal away a man’s inhibitions,
Distracting him from the deadly danger
Of saying sentences unsuitable
For the ears of his terrified children,
Whose fears, prompted by the exhibition
Of such intemperately inflamed ire,
Draw tears of dread, driving the decision
To avoid the pain of anger again
And put personal safety before desire;
Anger and alcohol too often rends
Relationships, makes enemies of friends,
Wrath turns misunderstanding into lie:
Parents hurt their children, families die
