My husband is a sex addict and one way he acted out was sending naked pictures of himself to other people and posting them to websites. I am currently using his old phone and found some of these pictures on it recently. We are only 2 months past D-Day so this set our recovery back some. He doesn't understand why I am so upset. He says it is his body and since his face isn't in the pictures I shouldn't care. I tried to make him understand how I feel by asking him how he would feel if the tables were turned. He said he wouldn't care as long as no one could tell who I am. He thinks I should get over this, that it is no big deal. I just feel like our bodies should only be for each other and not the whole world. Is he right, should I just get over it? If not, how do I communicate the pain this causes me? Thank you.
