Reviews - What do customers think about Confronting Your Spouse's Pornography Problem?
Very informative Jan 14, 2008
I personally found this book very helpful. It's written in a way that is simple to understand. I would recommend it to anyone who thinks they can benefit from a book dealing with this topic.
Finally a book for the other person in the relationship Feb 13, 2007
It hasn't been until recently that pornography has been accepted as a real addiction. Pornography addiction in some ways is much more shameful than alcohol and drug addition, and reliable resources for this type of addiction are still limited. This is the first book that I have read that really places the emphasis on the partner who is impacted by their spouse's behavior.
This book covers very well the feelings that you may have when you find your spouse is addicted to pornography. I like that the book also tells you different ways to confront your partner, and what to expect when you do confront your partner. This book also emphasizes what you must do as the partner that realizes they are in a relationship with a person with an addiction. Reid and Gray spend time in walking you through how you will feel, and offers you suggestions in how you can work through your own feelings.
Reid and Gray then spend time in helping you and your spouse to determine if a treatment plan is going to be used. Unlike Carnes' Out of the Shadows this book takes the perspective of the partner who is hurt by the addiction. The book also suggests ways to work on treating this addiction, determining if the relationship can be saved, and then working through the outcome of the relationship.
While there are a few books available on pornography addiction, this one really excells at what the partner suffers through. This book is well worth reading if you are involved with someone with a sexual addiction and how it will impact you. This book read along with Carnes Out of the Shadows will give a very well rounded perspective on the relationship from the addict and the person impacted by this behavior. Pornography addiction does not have to mean the end of a relationship, but it does mean looking at the relationship with fresh eyes. Reid and Gray will assist people in this type of circumstance with healing, and growing from this experience.
