Hello. If you are the wife of a sex addict this is where you belong. My name is Ella and I am also the wife of a sex addict as well as a therapist. This forum is for wives of sex addicts to discuss and offer encouragement and support.

I will moderate but will not be able to participate in every discussion. This is NOT to be seen as a substitute for counseling or as group therapy and I always encourage that you search until you can find the right counselor and support group for you. 

I want women to feel comfortable here to express whatever they are feeling. It is so important to be able to express all emotions, the positive and the negative, instead of holding them inside. However, I do want to encourage you to limit profanity as well as graphic details that can be triggering. 

Also, this must be a place where all women feel safe. Therefore, nothing but respect for others will be tolerated. As you respond to another please consider the golden rule and consider how you would want to be treated if you were that person. Just because you are sitting behind a computer screen does not mean that you are not talking to real people with very real pain. It can be easy to forget that when we communicate with others online. I hope this will be a place where wives from all over can come and find they are not alone!

Please understand that I will not be able to respond to every post. I will do the best I can, but a lot of your questions can be answered by posts I have already made on the site in other areas. Please take the time to read over the entire forum. I apologize that I can’t be as involved as I’d like. I really am trying!
