In my 27 years working with addicts and codependents, I rarely have come across a completely healthy partner of an addict, who did not carry some responsibility for the state of their relationship. Although the partners of the addict are unequivocally not to blame for the addiction, and most certainly the consequences of it, they certainly carry responsibility for the shared relationship problems that contributed to the addiction. This is not a new idea; for over 40 years, the pioneers of Family Systems and Adult Child of Alcoholics ACOA theories have espoused the various relational systems at play in an addictive relationship or family. It seems factual to me that healthy lovers rarely fall in love and commit themselves to an addict.

But, modern research largely reveals that it is a clinically meaningless and invalid link is external test based on antiquated, failed theories.
