This week we are looking at some of the lies told by pornography addiction. Today's Lie is: "Joining in your spouse's addiction will be helpful to your marriage."
Ugh. No, no, no. How many different ways can I say that this is NOT a good idea?
1. This is NOT a good idea.
2. Two wrongs don't make a right.
3. Don't support the thing that is messing with your marriage.
4. Don't support your spouse's pornography addiction.
I could go on and on.
Pornography is completely fake. It doesn't show healthy couples in healthy intimate relationships. It shows the opposite of that. You don't want to have your marital examples coming from exploited, coerced, or even trafficked relationships.
And how do you think you will feel after watching or acting out pornography? Better? Closer to your spouse?
The first time I heard about addicts who try to get their spouses to join in I was mortified. Don't go down that road, do not do that to yourself.
