It sounds like your husband is the co-dependent type and for a while that was to your benefit since you were struggling so much and needed someone who would be there for you no matter what. Maybe the only thing that changed was that you got stronger and she got needy. A good co-dependent who has the need to be needed is going to go for the person who is really struggling so he can try to bail that person out. He is probably not that attracted to people who are independent and functioning in a healthy manner. That might not ever change either.....sad to say.....
