true colors dating - Dating a man who has been sexually abused

I thought that marrying a man who was gentle and kind would lead to a healthy sex life together.

The memories kept poisoning my mind and our love-making experiences.

Eventually my husband also became a victim of my past sexual abuse.

I kept pushing him away more and more until I couldn’t be intimate with him at all.

Yes, Steve understood why I acted as I did (at least he said he did).

And if you need help finding a “Marriage-friendly” counselor, you can look into the “Links” part of that topic.

There are ministries, like Focus on the Family, that you can locate the one who can best help you.

It’s not that my husband Steve did everything right to help me deal with things properly. Unfortunately, I didn’t handle matters very well at all.

He said and did things in his frustration that sometimes complicated matters even more. I made matters all the worse because of my inability to know how to best work through my issues.

I needed to settle what had happened to me and begin the process of healing.

Healing was needed, not only in my mind, but in my love life with my dear husband.

The pain is immeasurably worse when the one who wronged us was a parent or a parent surrogate.
