The older I get the more I hear about people’s lives being hurt from porn.  I hate porn.  I hate everything about it.  I remember the first time I was exposed to it, and unfortunately I’m in the midst of writing an article for a parenting magazine about the first time my kids were exposed to porn.  Yes, it happened to us and yes I can still taste vomit in my mouth each time I think about it.  I hate it.

Only by the grace of God, porn hasn’t effected our marriage, but I have plenty of friends who deal with this in their marriages currently or in their past. It might be one of the most under talked about subjects these days.  I recently blogged about canceling a magazine subscription because I didn’t want boobies all over the place for my boys to see, even if it is just a fitness magazine.  Someone emailed me after reading that and asked my opinion on how to deal with this in your marriage.  Her husband confessed his struggle and she loves him deeply, but she’s having a hard time moving on and trusting him.  Her email pierced my heart and I hurt so much for her.  I thought about writing a post towards this, but at the end of the day I felt as though my words wouldn’t mean as much to her because I don’t truly get her struggle.  I can relate to the struggling part, but not the actual struggle.

I contacted a great friend of mine that has walked through this in her marriage and she agreed to tackle this topic anonymously.  I’m so excited for what she has to share with you over the next few days.  Post one will go live tomorrow and the second part will be up on Thursday.  Feel free to join this discussion in the comments section.  We look forward to discussing this with you guys.
