Marriage + Porn = Destruction?


Does porn destroy a marriage? I guess it depends on who you ask.  For myself I believe it can if it becomes an addiction, if the spouse spends too much online alone time then there’s an obvious problem. If the spouse tends to gravitate towards same sex porn then questions need to be raised along with an eyebrow.  In the end it’s all about what the couple is comfortable with.  In either case if the spouse becomes less physically and emotionally intimate or tries to act out his/her porn fantasies against their partner’s will, then counseling is in order.

What may seem “normal” to one marriage spells disaster for another. In the end it’s all about communication. Even too much pornography can create a desensitization process where upon the individual will need stronger visual incentives to become aroused.  It can also create an unhealthy situation where marital “bliss”  is primarily based upon sex.

I am not saying porn is bad. It can be used as a constructive tool within a monogamous relationship if done in healthy doses.  It’s always the extremes that causes problems.  In the end if the person prefers to selfishly satisfy their own needs, and not own up to his/her part in the relationship and be responsible, then it’s best to find someone who doesn’t carry so much baggage.
