Dating a recovering sex addict
To say I was a good wife prior to my sobriety would be a lie, I was not in so many ways.My husband and I had much more of a parent child relationship for many years, it certainly was not a healthy relationship.For example, he is the kind of man who will steer the conversation to himself, will talk at length about himself (almost like a monologue w little room for others input or a give and take), but will rarely, if ever, ask any questions of anyone else in the room.
This stands in stark contrast to the man he purported to be at the beginning of our relationship almost ten years ago.
Bright, well traveled, adventurous, daring – I was taken in by stories of these grand adventures he’d had in the past, picturing a life w someone filled w energy and motivation.
I was recently blindsided by my husbands sex addiction, am about 3 weeks post confrontation……….
For background, I am a recovering alcoholic, have been sober almost 2 years.
Are you incapable of being present in your marriage while doing recovery?
