I never expected my marriage to be such a heartbreaking emotional rollercoaster. My husband was introduced to porn at a pretty young age and hasn’t been able to give it up since. I’ve been with him for 10 years. It’s been 10 years of him promising he won’t seek porn (or pornographic images) anymore. I thought I could trust him but all he does is lie more. It’s scary how comfortable he is with lying to my face. I’ve suffered from deep depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts since he confessed his struggles to me. I feel like my marriage is headed towards divorce because of the damage porn has done to his brain, and my heart.
