My husband talks to many women in chat rooms online. He talks

Customer Question
My husband talks to many...
My husband talks to many women in chat rooms online. He talks dirty to them as they respond dirty to him and lately I found he sent 1 girl a picture of himself fully clothed and recieved 3 pictures from her. Two of which were very seductive. Although she lives in Canada and we live in Texas I still feel this is very wrong! He feels he has done no wrong because there is no physical contact. Am I making something out of nothing?

Hello Curious,

How long have you been together/married?

Did you have a problem with him talking dirty, or just with the pictures?

Has he always done this online?

If not how di you find out?

What are your ages?

How would he feel if you were doing it?

Has he ever cheated?

We have been married for six years, together for eight years. I knew he had always looked at porn online, but within the last year I have noticed sites like "ashley madison" and "sugardaddyforme" on the history on our computer. I noticed he had yahoo messenger on his laptop which he does not use for email, his email is hotmail. So I made up an account for myself serving as someone else, found him in chat and proceeded to see what it was he "chatted" about. Which he always told me it was innocent coversation when he was bored at work. Without him knowing it was me we talked very dirty back and forth and even made a "meeting place" for if we ever met up, because my character i made was only 200miles away. I then asked if he were married he replied yes to me and i guess i asked to many wife questions. As he got home he said he knew it was me all along, but I don't believe that he did. He has never cheated on me that I know of. He is a very passionate man and has loved me well, but I get annoyed with the chatting and the porn sites. I don't like either the dirty talk to another woman or the exchanging of pictures. I'm not sure how often the chatting occurs, but I know the porn is atleast three to five times a week. We have a good sex life, three times a week or more, but we have a three year old so he doesn't understand the "im tired" sometimes as I work as a full time cosmetologist also. We hardly fight, but when we do it's because of this issue. We are both 26 high school sweethearts. I cheated way before we were married back in high school with a bf i dated for 3 years. So I don't know if I'm parannoyed he too will someday "pay me back"....so yes I check up from time to time on him, but I always find these things. And ofcourse he throws in my face that I am checking on him. Hope this helps, please help!!

Thank you for the additional info. What scares me is that he went along with creating a meeting place. This tells me that given the opportunity he might cheat. There shouldn't be an argument about it, if it's something that you feel is detrimental to your marriage then he should, as you husband, take your fears seriously. Looking at porn and chatting with real women are two totally different ballgames, and he knows this. He's playing with fire, and at some point he's going to either back off, or take it to the next level. You have to talk about it, but not in a argumentative type of way, you have to explain to him that you were somewhat ok with the porn, but talking to real women, is cheating....even the implication o setting up any type of meeting is cheating. If you were ok with him talking dirty to other women that would be one thing, but you're not and he needs to respect that. I welcome your thoughts, let me know if you want to talk more.

He said he knew it was me and that was the only reason he made the meeting place. But I'm not totally convinced he did. I feel cheated. I have talked to him about it and he feels it's not because of the no physical contact. He tells me he would not be mad if the shoes were on the other feet if it were me doing this, but I know better. and because of my past he brings up I cannot argue with my wrong doings. I cannot get through to how I feel about this as a woman. He says doing this is better than going out and physically doing it, but it almost feels just as bad to me. He flat out lied this last time about not seeing the 2 dirty pictures this woman emailed just the one of her fully clothed he said he'd seen, but honestly how does that happen. I messenged her on my msn messenger acting as him and we talked and I asked her about the conversation we had before and not to my suprise there was some dirty talk. He told me they never talked dirty, so how do I go about telling him I talked to this woman myself? As a woman how would you feel if this were your husband?
Counselor: Ms Chase, Life Coach replied 9 years ago
You said you cheated on him before you got married, and yet he still decided to move forward with marrying you. I would take that to mean he has forgiven you and I would have no part of bringing it up. Either he's accepted or he's not, which one is it? If he hasn't accepted it, then you'll need to seriously consider counseling.....just the fact that he's bringing it up makes me feel like you need to be considering it anyway. The lying is a terrible sign, it means that he's comfortable lying to you and he may lie about other things as well. As his wife, you have every right to know what he's doing, and if he was on the up, he would give you his passwords, and not mind any checking up, especially since he's lied more than twice.

My personal feelings would be, he is either committed to this marriage or he's not. If something makes you uncomfortable, then he should take it seriously and give serious thought about stopping. What's more important, your wife or some dirty talk on the computer. You already talked to him dirty once, you can do it again if he needs it. You could take it to another level and start talking dirty to guys, I know you probably wouldn't want to, but just out of wondering how he would feel about it, but the downside is it might only make him do it more. The botXXXXX XXXXXne is he needs to be more concerned with your feelings than he is.

My girlfriend and I were dating for around a year and we
my girlfriend and I were dating for around a year and we attend the same church . We had both been out of long term relationships and healed each other before forming our own relationship. We were going great and madly Inlove .her behavior was amazing towards me with no signs of changing for the worse up until November 2017 we were having these tiny but annoying arguments mostly caused by me and my trust issues I will admit . So I called her one morning to make up for an argument we had the night before and she suddenly tells me she doesn't love me anymore and she does not want the relationship anymore . I freeze but go about the usual desperate plead and beg route which made her even more upset . We attend church that Sunday and when she sees me she feels the love again and we speak normal for 2 weeks not officially together yet but making moves she evens sends me a detailed email telling me how impressed she is and it will help us going forward . I push to hard the next day of this email and upset her all over again. That weekend before Christmas 2017 she goes totally cold towards me and destroys me in a phone call and tells me I am obsessed with her etc. she drops me a further bombshell the week of Christmas by telling me she is going to meet her ex for breakfast and I need to be mature about it . I decide then and there I am done with this and I cut off all contact with her . No calls or texts and emails . So about 2 weeks go by and she sends me a text ‘hey you have just crossed my mind hope you are well' I respond 5 hours later with ‘I am well . Hope you well,take care' the next week she sends me a pointless text to which I just respond with thank you and this week she sends me a long detailed apology email informing me that she is sorry for pain she had caused me and I am truly a great guy and she doesn't understand why she had so much built up anger toward me and till this day she can't seem to know why she got so upset with me and she doesn't deserve me etc . I responded with a simple thanks for the apology and she said she does not know why she took so long to apologize something just held her back . I don't hate her at all it not in my nature to hold grudges but this girl ruined my holidays and told me really hurtful stuff while she was out having a blast . And now suddenly she feels apologetic.
