Though gaining more attention, women whose spouse is involved in sexual addiction – or men whose wives are involved in the addiction –are still keeping their emotions toward the addiction quiet.
Recent posts are addressing the reality of sexual addiction within marriage. This includes strong feelings of shame, anger, guilt and depression. Most spouses say finding out their partner has a sexual addiction is similar to finding out their partner has had an affair, even if physical sex hasn’t happened outside of the marriage.
For many others, learning about the sexual addiction brings to light a series of sexual relationships with multiple partners and causes the spouse to question the nature of the addiction and whether or not they may have had a role in its development.
