  • My husband went through porn addiction. He was looking at it several times a day. I put my foot down. I don't have an issue with porn as entertainment but not when it interfers with your family life, your sex life, and your marriage. So I told him enough. I told him I couldn't live that way. He tried to give it all up cold turkey and it was like withdraw. He's been crabby, pissing, had sexual issues, etc...but now he's really grown and although I believe he does it occasionally, he's not addicted. He goes to bed at night with me, does housework or plays video games instead. Also our sex life is awesome. Its been hard and rocky going but honestly he had to make the choice. If he didn't I am sure I would have left. Last week he actually told me one day he watched it and I was like okay. He then thanked me because he said that he had a problem and was glad I put my foot down.

  • Tell him what you told us, let him know you are close to leaving or cheating if he doesn't get himself back into your marriage. Sorry you are going through this:(

  • I would say that after 16 years of bein with the same woman, hes prolly jus lookin for somethin different... guys go through this phase later in life that even if they are not cheating, they will still try to flirt and picc up on girls (usually younger) not for any other reason than to see if they still have "game". By him wantin to look for something different I dont necessarily mean a different woman. but obviously hes lookin for somethin to break up his normal pattern. I would recommend just spicing it up a little bit. Buy a sexy outfit, set up a hot date for him, and re-romance him. I just think that yall may have gotten into sort of a routine, which is almost expected after 116 years and men dont like monotony (NOT monogamy). Of course it cant hurt anything, and this way you have at least tried. Just try to bring bac why you guys fell in love in the 1st place.

  • You shouldn't cheat because that would be disrespecting yourself. I guess maybe you should give him an ultimatum, me or the porn. But be prepared to really say goodbye if he doesn't change.

  • Even after 16 years, I don't think you should have to pretend to be another person just to feed into his desire for someone else. Seems like he's just into finding something different and if he's not willing to give up the porn, I'd hit the road. You shouldn't have to come second to anyone or anything. Best wishes.

  • Hang in there. I feel for you. I have married the same amount of time and it hurts sometimes. You can work this out. GL momma.
