Sex addiction and divorce

On Behalf of | Mar 8, 2019 | Divorce

Infidelity has shattered many relationships, and people are unfaithful to their partners for many different reasons. Some may cheat on their husband or wife because they are bitter about something or want to get revenge, but there are other reasons why people carry out affairs. For example, some people may have a sex addiction, which could disrupt their life in countless ways and result in the breakdown of personal relationships. Whether you are struggling with this addiction or you believe that your partner is a sex addict, it is important to consider this topic as you move forward.

Sex addiction may affect someone’s life in different ways. For example, they may regularly cheat on their partner, or they may be addicted to viewing pornography on a frequent basis. This can, of course, be devastating for a spouse and it has led to the breakdown of many marriages. Some people are able to address this addiction and move on in their relationship, while others are irreparably damaged, and divorce is seen as the only option.

You may want to look into marital counseling if you are struggling with this issue, or you may be determined to move ahead with a divorce. It is always important to consider your options carefully and, if you have kids, do what you can to make the transition smoother. Whether your spouse has decided to call the marriage off, or you are very upset with your partner because of their behavior, exploring your divorce options and family law issues that apply to you is paramount.
