Porn In Christian Marriage – Mistake #1 Denial


pornography in christian marriage

Accepting reality is heart wrenching, but denial is deadly.

Christian marriages are deeply affected by pornography and assuming a man won’t get caught in the trap of immorality because he is saved is naivete at its worst.  Christians are told to be “wise as serpents, harmless as doves.”

 

If you’re a wife who has just discovered the situation, don’t try to pretend everything is OK.

The sooner you come to terms with the situation the sooner you’ll be able to deal with it. The longer you fool yourself into believing that his sexual sin is just a little problem, only gives the problem more time to grow.

Assuming it’s a “new” situation for your husband, doesn’t lessen the blow. 

Whether your spouse has been involved in porn for 10 days or 10 years is irrelevant.  If he’s viewed it more than once in his recent past, he has a problem that requires intervention and accountability.

But the hurting wife needs intervention also.

If you’re not careful, your heart is liable to get caught in a vicious cycle of pain that can set you off on a path of self-destruction.

Acknowledge your feelings for what they are.

You are going to feel hurt and angry and sorrowful.  That is expected and normal.  Don’t try to convince yourself it’s anything less than it really is.  Even a non-physical affair, such as viewing pornography, is a deep betrayal to a spouse and cannot be swept under the carpet. 

Your mate cheated on you.

That is treason to marriage and nothing about it should be discounted.  That would only make you feel cheap and used.  Even if he’s only viewing images and not participating in illicit sexual behavior, he is defiling your marriage.

Pornography is an assault against Christian marriage.

If you don’t know how to fight against it, you’ll become one of it’s next victims.  Seek intervention, before it’s too late. Find a grace-filled sister who you can be accountable to.
