How do you start the conversation with your spouse when you suspect that pornography is a problem in your marriage? Yep, we’re going there today! We’re shedding some light on this dark subject and talking practical tips that you can implement when there is a hole in the boat. My guest Rosie gives us hope that it is attainable to have a porn-free marriage if addressed properly and shares all of the right steps to take.
Rosie Makinney is a writer, speaker, and podcaster, who ten years ago entered the fight against her husband’s compulsive porn use. Through her faithful and uncompromising stance and his repentance, counseling, and group work, their marriage is now porn-free. From the very beginning of her journey, Rosie has been bold and relentless about reaching other wives struggling with porn-invaded marriages. There is now a thriving recovery community on the central coast of California, supervised by her husband, Mark, a certified sexual addiction therapist. Rosie is the founder of Fight For Love Ministries, which empowers women with both the facts and the faith to fight against porn addiction and its effects on them, their spouses, and their families.
