Rick , here goes my first question. Today is 4-13-15 and I am unfaithful and a liar. I lied on my first disclosure and on my second disclosure. I also failed a polygraph. I have since admitted to myself and my wife I am a sex addict I am in therapy, a men’s sex addict group, and go saa meetings. I am currently writing a full disclosure for my wife. My question is my therapist is requesting I read my disclosure at his office with him my wife and her therapist. My wife feels I am weak and not a man for doing it this way, I want to try something different than what we have done in the past which has not worked. How do you feel about doing it this way? My second question is my wife is interested in harboring hope but is not sure if it is for her because I am a sex addict can you shed some light on this also? Thank you for all you have done for us and others.
