    RE: the woman who called in about her husband and detachment

    I don’t think you asked the right questions. How is their intimacy? She is most likely in a lot of pain. How is she handling it? Washing over it with comments like most women have affairs, etc to get attention was just that-washing over some major hurt she feels. She mentioned he was also not honest about it with counselors. How many years have they been married? They have been to multiple counselors. Scheduling emotional time together. REALLY! She is trying to motivate him to open up and be intimate. Is he into porn? She is supposed to motivate him by withholding other things in the marriage. My hunch is that is just what he wants!

    Obviously, I relate to her. I was married 30 years to an intimacy anorexic. I knew from my honey moon night my husband didn’t want me physically or emotionally. I stuck it out because I didn’t believe in divorce and that you make your bed you lie in it. I focused on my kids. God blessed me with two wonderful, adult children that love the Lord. I stayed until they graduated high school and five years past that. My husband had issues with anger also. He was manipulative and verbally abusive. I finally figured out that he was into porn. After seperating and realizing that my daughter had caught him with it a few times. She told my pastor father and he didn’t tell me.

    I got to the point of such hopelessness that I was suicidal. The church needs to get real with how they counsel women. God doesn’t love marriage more than he loves the individuals in it. Women deserve to be loved.

    She needs help. If you can get a hold of her. Tell her to read-Married and Alone and Intimacy Anorexia. God can redeem anything but only if both want it redeemed. Dont’ put the responsibility on her to make it better! She needs help!
