    FINALLY…thank you Dave for confronting caller #2. She is absolutely minimizing and down playing what her husband did. She makes is seem like no big deal because it was a teen-ager and only it only happened 3 times. She is living in la-la land with a major cause of denial. I hope she and her husband don’t have children…I worry about their safety. She seems like the perfect wife for a guy with a sexual addition…she is the perfect enabler. I kept expecting her to blame the teen-ager for what happened.

    to caller #2 – she sound as if what her husband did was okay, I’m sure there’s more to the story then she or we know or every will know. He is a molester and she seems to be okay with that, first of all she’s more concerned about their sex life when he’s released than getting help for him. I agree with the panel today on the advice that was given but I would have been a bit more stern because the caller is not taking this matter serious whether her husband had sex or not (so she says) with his victims and for it to be three times, really. Not sure how much esteem this woman has for herself but I will definitely include her in my “new life callers” prayer.

    to the last caller – thanks for being honest and upfront with your wife, now only if you could tell her how you truly and deeply feel. Things that happened to us in our past does have a way of confronting us in some aspect later in life. I’m sure you enjoyed those loose moments that your wife was okay with but now things have changed and so has your heart. Not sure if those moments were life encouraging or just fleshly but I hope you have that DEEP talk with your wife and let her know just how you really feel, you might be surprised to find out she’s been feeling the same way too. Blessings
