Groups for Betrayed Women

If you are married to a man who is addicted to pornography and/or sex, you might fear that it is your fault. Although you might feel alone in your situation, the truth is that you do not have to be. There is nothing quite like the power of connection with others who understand and care because they have been there themselves. Route1520 Recovery Groups for Spouses offer a safe place for women to find support, care, direction, and prayer in community with other women who know first-hand what they are going through. Our groups provide authentic, transparent community and open discussion around the deep heart issues that drive destructive behavior. When you first discover your husband’s secrets, it is not uncommon to try to control his behavior by either being hyper-sexual with him or by withholding sex altogether. Some women try to spy on their husbands to find out how they are acting inappropriately and then try to enforce limits on his behavior. These are a few of the coping mechanisms that women will use to try to end the pain they are feeling. Unfortunately, none of these efforts to control fix the problem in the men they live with. Still, in most cases, spouses of addicts continue to try these and other coping strategies, even though they do not produce lasting results. A cycle is generated where the man acts out, the woman responds with one or more coping strategies, the man behaves for a season, and, after time passes and things get back to ‘normal’, the cycle starts all over again. Maybe you have already been through a few of these cycles. The addicted husband will rarely change without outside help. The suffering spouse will not find relief until she seeks help as well. The consequences of the addiction will continue to negatively affect the marriage and family until all that is left of the marriage is two co-existing roommates living in the same house, or until one of the spouses leaves.
