“Unbound Ministries has provided me, a wife and mother of two boys, with new perspective and insights into one of the most critical areas of a man’s journey. The conversation that resulted between my husband and me was one of the best and most profound we’ve had in our 25-year marriage. This ministry provides hope and understanding for one of the greatest challenges most men experience today.” - Ronda Price
Perhaps like Ronda, you are looking for some insight into your man. Or like so many other women, wondering how to approach the topics of pornography and masturbation with your sons. Focus on the Family reports that nearly one out of every two families will experience a problem in the home with pornography. In virtually all cases, these young boys aren’t looking for porn, but it is looking for them. A simple homework assignment, a search on the computer. It’s everywhere. So what do we do?
The first step is to start a conversation about it. Porn in America isn’t an ”issue” for a few men anymore. It’s an epidemic. Depending on what study you read, around half of all men struggle with pornography on at least a weekly basis. Internet pornography was cited by a leading group of divorce lawyers as a primary reason for separation in nearly 1/3 of all cases in 2009. But all is not lost!
There are answers to the questions you have. Real freedom in this area is really possible! Understand what is really going on in the hearts of the men around you. Gain insight into their battle, into why it will last their entire lives. Understand how to fight alongside them. Our prayer for you is that like many other women, it will be one of the best things you’ve ever done for your marriage!
Start by reading this letter from one wife to another. Consider purchasing and reading through Becoming Unbound. While you may not be able to identify with the subject matter as a woman, it will give you a firsthand understanding of what this battle is really like for the men in your life.
