My D-day was over 2 months ago. My husband confessed to everything from this past year and a half: him being a sex addict, which included porn, sexting other women, and two physical affairs. He immediately got into therapy, is attending a recovery program for sex addicts, and did everything to get accountability. Something inside me made me disbelieve this could only have been this last year. He now has confessed that he has been a liar and addict since we met (over 6 years ago, married 5 years). I am of course devastated and in so much anguish. What hope is there to restoring a marriage that has been a lie from the beginning? Have you seen redemption in this case? Furthermore, he was able to deceive so many people in our faith community. How is there hope in this situation? Any advice would be much appreciated.
