I'd like to post a question, but it was difficult to muster the courage to do so... Mostly because I have only shared this information with my one closest friend, and I would probably have to run and hide if others found out!!
I'm just curious to know if there are others in the same or similar situation and in a way, I'm hoping I'll feel a little more liberated by just saying this "out loud"... (even though I can remain completely anonymous here!)
Anyways... my husband (a csa survivor) and I have been married for close to four years now. We are both still very happy. I love him very much! He disclosed his abuse to me before we ever got married and over the past year he has been working painstakingly on recovery, getting involved on MS and seeing a therapist etc. I have seen great changes and I am very proud of him!
The ONLY problem we have ever really faced in dealing with the csa is the issue of affection and physical intimacy. And, (here's my "big secret"... we have NEVER had sex!) This has caused some definite rough patches here and there over the last few years, but lately I have been working really hard to be more understanding of his situation. We are extremely close and live a very "intimate" life together, but I have had to be VERY patient with our marriage and the progression of our relationship.
I guess just being on the site for a while and reading quite a few of peoples posts I felt I could share and maybe ask if there are others out there...?
Thanks for taking the time to read if you did!
