Yes, there is hope! But the success of working through this issue is dependent on both you and your husband being willing to do some very difficult work. He needs to work on his sex addiction. You need to work on boundaries and recovering from the trauma caused by his acting out. And together, you will need to work on your marriage.
A highly effective way in meeting all three goals is to participate in a Couple's Three-Day Intensive
. This is not a three-day cure. But it is good way to get a critical jump-start on recovery and lay a foundation upon which to rebuild your marriage. You may read more about Three-Day Intensives on our website or you may call us at (713) 630-0111.
Before you assume there is no hope, it is important to realize that many people find their relationships or marriage are strengthened and, in some cases, are better than they have ever been after treatment for sex addiction. If a person is being physically abused, separation is certainly in order. In some cases, where verbal abuse is present, separation is also indicated.
