Several years ago, my (then) husband and I went through sexual addiction in our marriage. After Pat experienced a period of recovery, we worked in a sexual addiction recovery ministry. His last relapse caused me to leave him and start my own ministry – telephone support groups for wives of sex addicts.

Thank you for spotlighting this book and the work that God is doing to help wives of sex addicts.

I just read an online article by Meg Wilson and I feel compelled to warn anyone who is thinking about taking advice from her. Her advice was horrible, and her pespective his distorted.

If you find your husband is looking at porn, it does not mean he has a sexual addiction. He may have an issue with honesty. He may have an issue with being intimate with you about his sexual needs. But it does not mean he is an addict. I encourage you to buy a book from an actual sex therapist that will help you understand your marriage better: The Passionate Marriage – By David Schnarch.

My wife and I have a great marriage and good sexual intimacy. But if we had read Meg’a book we probably would not have a marriage at all.

I completely disagree. Meg’s book is a great resource for wives whose husbands are struggling with sexual addiction. Statistically speaking, prolonged exposure to pornography tends to lead people into more and more debased behaviors. Pornography or any other type of sexual activity outside of marriage is incompatible with a Christian worldview. Since Meg Wilson is a Christian, that is the perspective from which she wrote her book.
