Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. Please note, this is not therapy, but information. I do hope I can help you though.

I am sorry to hear you are going through this. It is very inconsiderate if him to put you through this. Please understand though, this does not reflect on you. It reflects on him. My thoughts are, you need to quit asking and start demanding he quit. Are you still sexually active with him? I know that may ski d like a strange question, but it may be part of the solution. Any other details might help took pertainingg to your relationship.

Thank you!

I have demanded he stops and he tells me he will or he's not been watching it but it's in the recent web history. Since iv had children my body shape is not what it used to be which makes me feel low anyway. We are still sexually active not as often as it was maybe once a month if I initiate it now

Please follow me closely on this. I am not in any way insinuating divorce, but understand too he is being unfaithful to you. He is sick and needs help. Until you make it clear with your actions he needs help he will continue as is. I am not sure of your situation, but I believe you separate from him, demand he get help before you reunite.

Please understand, this is no different than if he were with another woman he needs to find a way out of this or he needs to suffer the consequences. As long as you are staying with him you are enabling his behavior. I know that sounds drastic, but until you back up you words with actions, you will likely get no results. Understand too though, he still may not change. You cannot be held responsible for that though . He is the one being u faithful. You needs to demand he change his ways. You deserve better than this.

Does that make sense you you?
