Sarah, I don't have the answer as I am in the same boat. My husband has been having sexual conversations with women online since before we married. He has sent and received pictures. I discovered this a few years into our marriage and he promised to stop. The cycle repeated several times and just recently came to a head. I am NOT willing to stay in this sinful environment if things don't change (I would leave but probably not file for divorce). In my opinion, raising a son in this atmosphere is too risky. My husband has finally admitted that he has a problem and is going to seek help. If he does NOT get this help soon and show that he's making an effort, I don't think I'll be able to stay. I really REALLY want to make our marriage work, but I feel like I've been the only one fighting for it. HE has to WANT to change. If that means we separate until he has that desire, I will do what I have to do to protect my son while still praying for my husband. I am so sorry that you are dealing with this. I have been scarred and completely depleted of emotion through this. It is hard to "press on", but I keep going back to that song: "When the valley is deep When the mountain is steep When the body is weary When we stumble and fall When the choices are hard When we're battered and scarred When we've spent our resources When we've given our all Chorus: In Jesus' name, we press on In Jesus' name, we press on Dear Lord, with the prize Clear before our eyes We find the strength to press on" Just remember... God HATES divorce. He said so. And if He feels so strongly about this, then he MUST provide a way of escape!! I keep hoping and praying that He gives that escape from this sin soon!!
