Pornography can be an unhealthy substitution for sex with one’s spouse, but often it’s a symptom of a deeper issue and a way to cope with unresolved pain. The user may be avoiding true intimacy.
Healing a marriage after the damage of a pornography addiction is no simple matter. A healthy marriage requires deep commitment from both spouses. And to heal a broken marriage, both must take action.
You can’t keep hiding. You can’t kick the habit on your own; no one can. If you really want to be free, you’re going to have to open up to others. You’re going to have to learn to be vulnerable.
