3 thoughts on “My Husband Has PIED: What Do I Do?

  1. My husband knows I’m aware of his porn use, yet he refuses to talk about it or admit that it’s an issue in our relationship. I’m not sure the extent of it I just know it’s not good and he suffers from PIED. Don’t know where to go with this.

  2. Being in our mid-sixties, and with my husband having indulged in porn, dating sites, etc., for a couple of decades, resulting in PIED, I don’t have a lot of hope that we will ever be able to have a satisfying sex life like we had prior to internet porn invading our lives. It’s been over 2 years since d-day and he is 11 months porn and inappropriate fantasy free, and he now says that he hates sex, and wants to puke when he thinks of it, because of the damage that it has done. So now he has gone from believing the lies that “porn isn’t so bad” and “nobody’s being hurt” to believing the lie that “sex is bad”, and I’m still being hurt!!! I reminded him that God created sex to be a blessing and it’s the perversion that he should hate. He is a retired pastor and has studied the Bible extensively and knows it’s truths, so why is he still believing lies??? I am at a loss as I doubt that he will even bother reading this blog, as he now prefers spending many hours on the net looking at cars, rv’s, cell phones, stocks, etc. (he calls these “hobbies”, but nothing is being accomplished), and refuses to do any kind of research on his own that would better our relationship. I believe he thinks that I will eventually just “get over it”, resulting in spending the rest of our lives together in a mediocre marriage. He tells me that I am the most important person in his life, but I believe that the internet is still his priority most of the time. When I tell him my needs for him to research ways to rebuild trust and our marriage, his come-back is “I’m trying!!!” God help us…… Thank you for providing space for me, and others, to vent. I pray that God will expand your ministry, and its influence will help many people be set free, and marriages saved.
