Did you have a sponsor? Did she? Were you in al-Anon? Did you ever read the Big Book? If the answers to these questions are no, then you didn't go to enough meetings, and she obviously didn't get through the steps. Which is good for you, because AA has something like a 90 percent rate of members leaving their loved ones for AA members who do complete the steps.
Basically, going to a few meetings isn't the same thing as joining AA.
