After 28 years of marriage, I've recently discovered that my husband has a porn/sex/internet addiction. I also now realize that it has been going on for as long as 10 years. A combination of his being very good at hiding it as well as my own sense of denial have led us to our current situation; he has had an affair and now seems so deeply enmeshed in these addictions that our marriage, our children, and even his faith have taken a backseat to them. Over the past several months I have attended counseling both individually and with my husband but it only seems to have gotten worse. I feel alone, devalued, and devastated that this man who I gave my heart to, has replaced me with both real and virtual women. I'm at a point now where I struggle with staying or leaving. We still have children at home - 11, 15,& 17. I'm not asking anyone to tell me what to do, but I feel like I need some help and hope; to know I'm not alone and to connect with other wives who have traveled this very difficult road.
