My husband was involved in a limerent affair for 3 months that developed into a physical affair briefly with a subordinate at work. During discovery he admitted to a one night stand many years ago coming back from a work trip. I am worried about more discoveries and since then have doing a lot of reading on trauma and pain to determine exactly what we are dealing with. He has had issues with pornography in the past, but in my readings I am finding the ties to childhood trauma. When I asked him about this he admitted to being sexually molested when he was a young boy by a family member. There is so much to deal with now that I don't know if there is a particular order in which to follow for recovery. We are now doing Married for Life, Harboring Hope, and Hope for Healing. We are doing better.....I would be grateful for your thoughts on this. My concern is will waiting to address sexual trauma be detrimental.
