No. The reasons for the divorce will not affect your ex spouse. However, you must demonstrate to USCIS that the marriage was bona fide in order to receive an approval of the I-751. I recommend you seek counsel for the preparation of your application.
You are correct not to stay in a bad marriage. Speak to an attorney now regarding the direction you want to take with your case.

I think it would be playing it safe by not mentioning the drug use. Many attorneys are not aware of the strict policies of the air force, especially as they relate to drugs. True, Air Force will not normally be able to Immigration files, but I would still say, keep the drug stuff out- you don't need it to make your case with the joint filing waiver. I would definitely have an attorney handle this one. Let me know if I can help. My husband's in the Air Force too. Emel Ersan, 4511 N. Himes Ave. (near the stadium). 813-449-4422.
This is only a short advice- you should not file anything without getting the full facts from a lawyer.
