Nothing is more devastating to a wife than discovering her husband’s pornography obsession. A wife is afflicted with thoughts of her husband committing adultery numerous times over. Even if there is no physical sexual infidelity, the emotional infidelity is no less painful.
The sense of rejection is overwhelming and creates a barrage of emotions that can cripple an otherwise healthy woman. A wife can be tormented with anguish that inhibits her ability to function as a wife, mother, employee, etc.
Shame enters the scene to cause isolation and lead a woman to feel she is alone and unable to move beyond her seemingly hopeless situation. Many women suffer in silence to avoid further pain and humiliation, only to experience deteriorating mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health.
Statistics claim that 90% of Christian men have relational problems because they view pornography, lust, and fantasize. It’s estimated that over 50% of Christian men are addicted to pornography. It’s nearly impossible to number how many Christian wives are affected by their husband’s sexual sin.
