  • You need to do one of two things.

    1. Tell him he MUST talk to a professional or your marriage is DONE.


    2. Forget about it and accept that this is who he is and it's not likely to change.

    My choice would be #1.

  • So you have been in a relationship with him sense you where 15? His porn addiction is like any other addiction, his problem not yours. He needs help by professionals. He has to want to stop.

  • This is tough. I think you both need to talk to someone that can help with these kinds of issues... a therapist or someone that can help out.

  • I agree, he needs to talk to someone. Probably not you because it makes him uncomfortable.

  • You have to make him see, he needs to talk this through, it's the only way he can be helped.

  • nope since i was 16...but why does that matter lol. He has told me numerous times he wants to but cant I havent tried to force him to do anything he didnt want to.

  • He needs to seek counseling; since he won't do that, I really don't know. Have you laid out your feelings about this to him? Let him know you want to help him through his issues, but you don't know how.

  • You got together when you where still a teen. Do you feel you can't leave him because you have kid/s with him?
