My husband also has a sex addiction , I,v been with him for 22 yr s and he has been unfaithful but in cycles throughout the marriage. The list is endless ,,prostitutes ,chat lines,internet sex , sending photos of himself to women and many other forms of porn . I have never told my family because of the fear they would think bad of him and think he was a pervert as most people would probably agree he is.So far we,v been to relate 3 times it does help but we never changed as a couple and the sex cycle was never broken we just go round in circles .Now you may think I,m weak but I,v fought tooth and nail to keep my marriage and I,m sad to say this final discovery of betrayal may be the end .I feel so alone, sad and am grieving my best friend ,,but was he really? The doctors put me on the sick for a week and I,m seeking tests for STD,s that I should have had done years ago but like a fool I believed every bit of rubbish that came from his mouth and he still denies not having sex with any one else.
The latest was 3 days ago I found numbers and messages on his mobile phone he has admitted to masturbating alone in his car which I find disturbing as we have 2 children 14 and 12 yr s old. if this were to come out or he was caught imagine the humiliation, hurt, emotional upset and damage it would do to the kids and the shame it would bring to the family. He,s admitted he needs help and feels he has an addiction but I just cannot see him being faithful ever and wonder is he kidding himself as he,s admitted to me yesterday he doest know if he can stop thank you for taking the time to read this. x
