Pornography is a rampant problem for couples I see. For the record, porn use is an affair. An affair is defined as, “giving to others what belongs to your partner.” No, it does not look like the same as having an actual sexual relationship with someone other than your partner but its effects on the relationship are equally disastrous. Pornography in a relationship is not harmless. Your partner will often feel they are not enough and this can seriously affect their own sense of self-worth. Here are five indicators that you might be struggling with a porn addiction.
Pornography addictions are very treatable and we have an excellent track record here at Bayridge in helping people win over this issue. It can not only have long term consequences for your health but it can also be a reason for divorce. Is porn worth ending your marriage and access to your kids?
