One of the great gifts to me in my journey has been my wife.
At the point in my life when my addiction finally came to light she did something crucial: she held my feet to the fire and did not withhold her anger.
She was furious, and rightly so.
In my experience, men whose wives shield them from the anger that arises when the reality of porn addiction is revealed miss out on something crucial.
They miss the opportunity to reckon with the brutal truth that what they have been a part of in acting on their sexual compulsions has truly brought death into their marriages.
The Biblical teaching that my sin affects the body of Christ was driven home to me when i saw — in unvarnished terms — how it affected my wife.
William Paul Young, author of The Shack
