Pornography and marriage don’t mix.
There’s really no better way to put it. You should never put pornography and marriage together. Putting together pornography and marriage is like putting together a septic tank and a priceless work of art.
You should never combine pornography and marriage. Ever.
Why? Here are a few reasons.
Combining pornography and marriage leads to jealousy.
The fact of the matter is that porn does insidious things in the minds of those who view it. Porn may lead to actions, but it does all its work in the brain – and that’s where it can wreak havoc in a marriage. When your spouse decides to try something new, it can be hard not to think that they learned it from the porn they’ve viewed, and then you’re wondering if they’re fantasizing about those perfect performers instead of being fully in the moment with you.
Combining pornography and marriage leads to boredom.
We’ve heard it all before, and inevitably there’s a phrase that crops up whenever someone decides to put pornography and marriage together: “spice things up.” Couples try it together in order to “spice up” their sex lives. The only problem is: porn acts as a deadening agent in your mind. Nothing stimulates the brain the way pornography does, including sex with your spouse. Meaning: you let porn in, and suddenly things get really, really boring.
Combining pornography and marriage leads to destruction.
When porn infiltrates your marriage and is allowed to run unchecked, it can lead your marriage to ruin. Don’t let it. If you’re thinking of checking out porn together, think again. And if you have a spouse who is in thrall to porn, we have a great number of resources available to help you and to help them.
