Dear Rick, My husband and I attended the EMS weekend this past July. Until the EMS weekend, my husband only admitted to two emotional affairs. During the course of the EMS weekend, he disclosed that he had five sexual affairs (this includes the 2 affairs that I thought were just emotional). Prior to this, I would like to add that he has been discovered, intermittently, over the course of several years using the internet to seek out women. He has denied having any type of relationship with women online, but he did admit to watching porn. Just two days ago, he admitted (after much persuasion and intense arguing) that he has emailed back and forth with women. He has also used skype to video conference with other women while he masturbates. After EMS weekend, I felt like we were on the track to recovery. Now I feel helpless and hopeless again. I feel like this is more than casual sexual and emotional affairs. I feel like we are dealing with a sex addiction issue, but he doesn't want to admit it. He only wants to own up to what he can't deny (because it was discovered), but I feel like there is much more that he is hiding from me. How should I handle this situation? I feel like giving up.
