My husband has a pornography addiction that led to an affair last year. We are in marital counseling and he has his own therapist to deal with the sexual addiction, in addition to seeing his spiritual director who is a priest. I forgave him for his affair after much prayer and adoration.
He has had relapses with the pornography that he has lied about and two months ago met with the woman he had the affair with last year. I felt I couldn’t bear the pain any longer and was going to leave him and would have if it weren’t for the fact that we have four children (and another on the way) that we have tried to raise as good Catholics.
My husband apologizes for his bad choices and says it won’t happen again and he is committed to our family but I have a very hard time believing him now after the second transgression with this woman. I have forgiven him again but find it very difficult to live with him. Does the Church have guidelines as to what to do in a case like this?
