Marriage and Sex Addiciton: How To Handle It

By Robin Roshkind, Esquire, West Palm Beach, Florida

Tiger Woods isn’t the only husband with a sexual addiction.  New statistics show that up to 60% of husbands cheat on their wives at some time during the marriage.  That is huge.  Not all of the husbands, of course, are sex addicts, and there are many reasons to cheat.  But I think sex addiction is more prevalent than we women would like to think.

So how do you handle a husband who you suspect is a serial cheater?  First, check his cell phone when he is in the shower.  Make sure you are not delusional.  Then when you have the evidence, you have two options after the crying and confrontation: stay in the marriage or go.  

Of course, this is simplistic advice.  Many women don’t want to give up the good life marriage brings with it, so they may choose to look the other way.   Many don’t have a good married life so they can’t wait to throw the creep out of the house and file for divorce.    Some may want to try therapy, like Tiger Woods.  But therapy does not guarantee an in tact marriage.  Just ask Elin Woods.  She has removed herself and her children from the whole darn mess.  Tiger may find his conscience, but it also may be too late.

It may be too little too late for your spouse too.  The legal ramifications are as follows:  bank accounts will be cleaned out, children relocated to grandma’s house, wife calls her friends for moral support and then she retains counsel.
