In my last post, I began a conversation about sex addiction: what it is, who it affects, and why it happens. That post has only been up for a week or so. But in that brief time, I’ve received dozens of comments and questions. Many of you have dealt with a sex-addicted spouse, or have tried to overcome your own sex addiction.
The refrain I hear, again and again, is: What do I do now? What is the next step? Is there any hope for us? Sex addiction can be devastating. It leaves many unanswered questions in its wake, and it brings its own kind of mistrust into the spouse’s mind.
Today, I would like to share steps you can take RIGHT NOW to prevent a sex addiction from ruining your relationship. I want to show you ways to deal with suspicion in potentially productive ways.
