I recently was made aware (by my 15 year old son) that my husband has an app on his phone to hook up with people for sex.

I am wondering the best way to respond, do we confront him as a family as all 4 children ages 15,19,24,26 are aware of the problem.

Right now I am hanging tight and getting help for myself and wondering if it's best to offer help, as far as supporting them in finding counsel, to the children. The oldest one recently got engaged.

I have not told him that I know he has this app on his phone. Is that a good idea, to make him aware that I know? Every other time I confront him with evidence, he denies it and minimizes it.

Wondering best way to handle it. I am committed to the marriage, not seeking separation but considering an in home separation for a period of time, waiting for counsel on that
