My husband and I are currently enrolled in EMSO and are seeing a counselor separately. There have been multiple affairs throughout our relationship and in the past 20 months there have been multiple D-Days. My husband thinks that the expectation to be faithful should be the same as the expectation to meet sexual needs. He doesn't think it's right that staying faithful to your spouse is held to a higher standard than meeting your spouse's sexual needs. How can I explain the difference between being faithful to your spouse and unmet sexual expectations?
