I'm answering a question from our Women Making Marriages Work Facebook Group tonight. It's a big one.

This is a question from Emily, who writes:

What is my role as a committed Christian wife with 3 young kids under 7, with a husband who has a sex addiction and has struggled with pornography and masturbation since age 11, due to generational sin in his family and no parenting from his father, who also has a porn addiction even now as a married Christian man...

My husband is now in a men’s support group specifically for sex addiction, but he is realizing how bad his problem is and can’t seem to break the chains of it, he is supposed to be clean for 6 months before he can even disclose anything to me, and he’s only been able to go 3 weeks clean, over 18 months of being in the group...

I feel helpless and useless staying in this marriage, as he is jerking off more than having sex with me, to random fantasies of porn women.

I'm going to answer this from a non-denominational point of view and provide her with a pathway forward.

Much love, Meg
