I loved my husband and I wanted his comfort yet he was the source of my searing pain.

Sexual addiction can create a betrayal trauma in a relationship.  When betrayal trauma occurs when someone who we depend on and are significantly attached to – a spouse, parent, lover, or friend – betrays our trust and lets us down in a critical way. When this trust is violated is creates deep insecurity, fear and uncertainty in the relationship.  Trust can be rebuilt through a process of empathy and accountability.
