Porn creates devastating emotions in most women

For women who learn their husbands have a pornography problem, emotions come rushing in, sometimes out of the blue and other times as an explanation for behavior that was never adequately explained. They report feeling:

  • Betrayal of marriage vows to "forsake all others"
  • Confusion over how video images and pictures became more important than marriage, family, church or career
  • Anger at the lies, the secrecy and the emotional abandonment that is minimized or unacknowledged
  • Fear of who will find out
  • Isolation in not knowing where to turn
  • Hopelessness that the marriage can ever be salvaged
Many have seen signs or had a hunch that something was amiss in their marriage, but they didn't put the pieces together. Their husbands often withdraw, become reclusive, spend money that's unaccounted for and — most of all — they have secrets.

The secrets are about where they go, how they spend their time, why they stay so late or go so early to work, why they have to have wireless Internet access wherever they go.
