D-Day was 6 years ago. I have completed Harboring Hope and my husband has completed Hope for Healing. Just before his last session I offered to him my help. I understand with his past, temptation is presented to him more than the average person and I want to help him in any way I can. He responded with a lie, again. I learned that same night he had told me a lie and a few days later he admitted it with the excuse that he didn't want to discuss it. Things got so bad after I learned he lied to me again, that I moved out. I can't take the lying or the anger anymore. Others have told me it is time for me to stop being the victim. We are both Christians but if you had heard the voicemails he left me that night and the disregard for me, my safety, the slander he used against me, you would disagree. I did get him the book "Stuck" that Rick has recommended for people with anger issues. Yes, he has those issues too. What do you recommend for the habitual liar? I want to feel safe and have God bless this marriage. But I also know how God feels about lies. And I know he will not bless this marriage until my husband come 100% clean, stops lying, and treats his wife with respect. We have been married over 45 years and his lust, and first affair was within the first 2 years of our marriage. Since then, there has been abundant lust, pornography, ED, and never ending lies.
