Should i give my sons father another chance?
So the only reason you dumped him is b/c of sex? I think you should see if he would be willing to go to go to counseling with you.
Despite what a lot of people here will tell you, the research is clear: Children do better in 2 parent married homes unless there is violence, drug/alcohol abuse, or high conflict (lots of screaming, etc.). Children of single parents are more likely to live in poverty, be abused, go to jail, have sex young, be depressed, do drugs, ETC.
Have some empathy. If you were in his shoes you might not have wanted to deal with your childhood trauma before you felt ready, either. If he's willing to do the work, help him LIKE A LOVING, SUPPORTIVE WIFE WOULD.
It's great you put your foot down...but now that he is willing to get the help why not stand by him?
EDIT: Hi :)
It does sound like you've put forth a lot of effort to try and help him. Unfortunately, if he doesn't want help you can't do his "work" for him, as you've seen. :(
He may have valid reasons for not wanting to get help (fear, anger, shame, etc.) but you have the right to want a sexually healthy marriage, too.
For what it's worth, rape/molestation counseling can be obtained for free in most communities. Here's a phone number you can call to find out more: 1-800-656-HOPE (a confidential, free, 24/7 national rape/incest/etc. hotline). They (RAINN) also offer free counseling via the internet!
Does your fiance know that sometimes people find that one therapist doesn't work out for them but another one is perfect? Maybe the first couple of therapists weren't a good fit for him but someone else might be.
Something else to consider is that if your fiance is already suffering from depression/anxiety it may feel even harder for him to be willing to get help. For instance, revisiting his past might temporarily increase his depression and/or anxiety. However, as bad as it might feel to face his fears brain researchers have found that discussing traumas & releasing them gives your brain/nervous system the opportunity to begin healing.
Furthermore, there are treatments available for depression and anxiety. There are prescription meds a doctor can prescribe, natural treatments he can buy over the counter (but should still discuss with his doctor), and thinking/behavioral strategies a therapist could help him with. If he's having panic attacks, a great book is "Hope and Help for Your Fears" by Weekes.
If your fiance is unwilling to get help then you've gotta do what you've gotta do. I thought from your original question that he was READY to get help but that you were unwilling to forgive his past avoidance. But if he's not willing to get help then it sure doesn't seem right for him to have endless porn sex while you feel alone.
If your fiance does pursue therapy my one last thought would be that you show and tell him how much you appreciate his efforts. Men are often more responsive to appreciation than to what they call "nagging", etc. Maybe write him a letter about how much it means to you that he is willing to put you and your kids first. Let him know that you know how difficult his journey is and thank him for being your hero by getting help. (John Gray talks more about this in his book, "men are from mars, women are from venus".)
Finally, this is unfair of me to say but I will say it anyways in case it helps you. Do you show appreciation to him & enjoy his company in other parts of your relationship or have you defined your relationship by this one issue? Because perhaps as a youngster he felt used and abused for sex...and now he may feel that you behave like his abuser if you keep pushing him for the one thing he is uncomfortable with while ignoring all the other aspects of who he is as a partner/father. Maybe he needs to see that you like/love him for more than just sex?
You aren't a bad person or a bad mother for not wanting to spend the rest of your lifetime in an asexual marriage. I can completely understand why you would feel lonely, angry, etc. It's a sad situation and you can offer your patience and support but it won't be enough if he's unwilling to move forward. It takes the effort of TWO people to make a marriage work well...hopefully he realizes that. Best wishes to you all. x
christians, is this true. wow shocking?
One of the things that the Seventh Day Adventists fail to acknowledge is that the practice of worship on the first day of the week is as old as Christianity and was instituted by the Apostles. It is important to recognize that this is eisegesis on their part supporting instead of the Ten Commandments the teaching of their prophetess and founder Ellen Gould White. They would say that this practice, which is as old as Christianity, is a violation of God’s eternal decree. Let us go to Scriptures and see if the evidence is there to support their conclusions.
Let us look at the basis, other than Ms. White’s visions, that SDA’s have this belief and criticism of the orthodox belief in observing the first day of the week instead of the Sabbath. According to Scriptures this is the “perpetual covenant” that was given to man through all ages. Therefore according to history the Jew’s have observed the Sabbath in commemoration of our Lord’s rest after creation. These are the verses in regards to the pre-Christian practice:
(Exo 20:8 DRB) Remember that thou keep holy the sabbath day.
(Exo 20:9 DRB) Six days shalt thou labour, and shalt do all thy works.
(Exo 20:10 DRB) But on the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: thou shalt do no work on it, thou nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy beast, nor the stranger that is within thy gates.
(Exo 31:16 DRB) Let the children of Israel keep the sabbath, and celebrate it in their generations. It is an everlasting covenant
(Exo 31:17 DRB) Between me and the children of Israel, and a perpetual sign. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and in the seventh he ceased from work.
(Exo 31:18 DRB) And the Lord, when he had ended these words in Mount Sinai, gave to Moses two stone tables of testimony, written with the finger of God.
(Deu 5:12 DRB) Observe the day of the sabbath, to sanctify it, as the Lord thy God hath commanded thee.
(Gen 2:1 DRB) So the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the furniture of them.
(Gen 2:2 DRB) And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made: and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had done.
(Gen 2:3 DRB) And he blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
(Gen 2:4 DRB) These are the generations of the heaven and the earth, when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the heaven and the earth:
(Gen 2:5 DRB) And every plant of the field before it sprung up in the earth, and every herb of the ground before it grew: for the Lord God had not rained upon the earth; and there was not a man to till the earth.
(Gen 2:6 DRB) But a spring rose out of the earth, watering all the surface of the earth.
(Gen 2:7 DRB) And the Lord God formed man of the slime of the earth: and breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living soul.
(Gen 2:8 DRB) And the Lord God had planted a paradise of pleasure from the beginning: wherein he placed man whom he had formed.
(Gen 2:9 DRB) And the Lord God brought forth of the ground all manner of trees, fair to behold, and pleasant to eat of: the tree of life also in the midst of paradise: and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
(Gen 2:10 DRB) And a river went out of the place of pleasure to water paradise, which from thence is divided into four heads.
(Gen 2:11 DRB) The name of the one is Phison: that is it which compasseth all the land of Hevilath, where gold groweth.
(Gen 2:12 DRB) And the gold of that land is very good: there is found bdellium, and the onyx stone.
(Gen 2:13 DRB) And the name of the second river is Gehon: the same is it that compasseth all the land of Ethiopia.
(Gen 2:14 DRB) And the name of the third river is Tigris: the same passeth along by the Assyrians. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
(Gen 2:15 DRB) And the Lord God took man, and put him into the paradise of pleasure, to dress it, and to keep it.
(Gen 2:16 DRB) And he commanded him, saying: Of every tree of paradise thou shalt eat:
(Gen 2:17 DRB) But of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat. For in what day soever thou shalt eat of it, thou shalt die the death.
(Gen 2:18 DRB) And the Lord God said: It is not good for man to be alone: let us make him a help like unto himself.
