There are people who really like s*x. Then there are those that are addicted to it. Not addicted in a sense that they just do it a lot and say they are addicted, but addicted in the way that someone would be addicted to a drug or alcohol. If you found out that the person you were starting a relationship with was a s*x addict, would you continue with the relationship or let it end? One woman tells her story of how she ended up marrying a s*x addict and it actually ended up making her marriage a stronger one.
When Anna Davis was just 20 years old she thought that she would never end up married because she was not someone who liked relationships. Then she met the love of her life and they got engaged after just a few weeks. When the couple got married, she was 22 years old and he was 21. She knew about the large p*rn collection that he had, but decided it was just a guy thing and ignored it. She caught him in racy online chats with other women. He said that it wouldn’t happen again and she believed him. Then at a family event she accidentally grabbed his phone and stumbled on texts that proved that he was having an affair with her best friend.
After that incident she learned that he had not only been sleeping with her best friend, but had also been with other men, women, pr0stitutes, and people he had met while traveling around. He entered a 90-day inpatient treatment program and they cut off all communication. She moved across the country. When he got out of rehab they lived together again, but slept in different rooms and didn’t sleep together for over 7 months, and never talked about the situation. He ended up relapsing four times two years later. Every time he lapsed they split up. He entered rehab again. This time Anna went to therapy with him. They both learned that addicts can be rehabilitated, but the behavior of both parties after is what would keep the addict from relapsing, much like any other addiction.
Today they are happy and it has been five years and no relapses. They joke that they are in their second marriage.
Would you be able to go back after something like this or would you run for good?
