My husband has been visiting prostitutes and massages parlors for most of our marriage. He has contacted more than 24 prostitutes and engaged sexually with them more than 50 times. As the time went by, he started hiring more expensive prostitutes. He spent nearly $20,000 on them in a year. He says he is repented and cured of the addiction. He says he ashamed for what he has done, but he demeanor does not reflect this. The other day, we noticed an old white man leaving a hotel with a young oriental girl, most prostitutes in middle east are oriental. I told my husband, “Look, that is the way you look with the prostitutes you hired”. He said that he never leaves the hotel with the prostitute for discretion, and he was smiling as he said it. When I asked him, “Why are you smiling?” He changed his face and said, he is not smiling. What does this mean? Is he really repentant or is he telling what I want to hear. His demeanor doesn’t seem to reflect grief for what he has done.
