Sad coupleSex is all about intimacy. If there’s no intimacy in your relationship, it will begin to show in your sex life. The problem that comes with correcting your sex life is the time that it takes you to respond to the situation. Some people are reluctant to make changes in this area of their relationship, so they wait for the problem to correct itself, which it rarely does.

Pornography might not be the main reason why the level of intimacy has declined in your relationship. You should run through the list of possible issues that could be afflicting your sex life. Look at the behavior of your significant other to see if they’re doing things that aren’t usual for them. There are some warning signs that can tell you that there’s something wrong that needs to be addressed.

Getting Them Help

Before things get too out of hand, you have to work to get your loved one the help that they need.

It doesn’t matter if they try to tell you that they’re either not looking at pornography or they have a handle on the situation. You should put it out there and say that you care about them and you want to see them get better. Your relationship should be more important to them than looking at pornography.

Staying on Top of the Situation

Once you have entered your loved one into a treatment program, you have to see it through to the end.

You can’t let your loved one convince you that they can end their program prematurely. There’s a reason why the recovery programs for pornography take as long as they’re supposed to take. Shortening the time that’s spent in them is the worst possible thing for someone’s recovery.

Picking up the Pieces

At the conclusion of the recovery program, you have to find a way to rebuild your trust in your loved one.

Your love your significant other and you should do whatever it takes to get back to where you were before pornography became a part of your lives. This process might require you to invest a lot more time than you might have originally anticipated.

As long as your significant other is willing to put in the proper amount of work, you should reciprocate their effort. The road back to normalcy needs to involve both sides putting in an equal amount of work.

Returning to a Sexual Bond

You should wait to return your relationship to its sexual form until you feel like you’re comfortable. It takes a long time before you will get to a point where you trust your significant other in a way where you will want to get intimate with them.

You can’t rush the situation and hope that everything will work out. If you feel like you need to wait a while longer, your significant other needs to understand how you’re feeling.

They were the ones that put you in that position to begin with. They have to cooperate with your recovery process because you were nearly as much of a victim of pornography as they were.
