Pornography: The Death of Marriage

Psalm 101:3

I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.

2 Peter 2:13-15

And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;

Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:

Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Besor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness…

I saw this article on my Twitter timeline.  I thought it would be worth posting on my blog.  It hits home for me because I lived this scenario since 2007.  I am in the process of putting together a plan to support other women who are dealing with this issue.  I even hope to reach out to the victim in this article and see if she would be willing to at least support my efforts.  If you are a woman who is going through this, please comment at the end of the article.  I would love to talk to you and encourage you as you seek healing and restoration in your life.

Chris Rock: I was addicted to porn and it destroyed my marriage

June 19, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Pornography addiction played a role in Chris Rock’s marriage falling apart, he revealed on a comedy tour this spring.

Fight the New Drug (FTND) and Inquisitr both reported on the celebrity’s remarks. Recordings weren’t allowed at the show, but Inquisitir relayed that Rock “open[ed] his soul to the sold-out crowd.”

Rock said his pornography use constantly made him 15 minutes late, unable to look people in the eye, and unable to pick up on basic social cues. In addition to using pornography, he cheated on his wife of 16 years with other women several times, too.

Since then, Rock has gone to therapy to treat his addiction.

Rock also used his comedy show to discuss how hard on his family his divorce was. Inquisitir said there was “glistening pain” in Rock’s eyes as he “asked the crowd not to applaud his divorce.”

“Rock described the destructive effect of his pornography addiction” for a moment in his otherwise light-hearted show, The New Orleans Advocate reported.

“While we don’t know the details of his struggle or of his personal life, Rock was bold enough to lay his experiences out for all to see, and though he might not have said that porn was the reason his marriage ended, he made it clear that it was a contributing factor,” wrote FTND. “And his situation would be in good company, seeing as pornography can double a marriage’s chances for ending in divorce.”

British comedian Russell Brand has also publicly condemned pornography.

“Once that biological drive to procreate is connected to a culture of objectification, it’s a very hard equation to break,” Brand said in a famous rant about how pornography distorts perceptions of sex and sexuality. “If you’re constantly bombarded by great waves of filth, it’s really difficult to remain connected to the truth.”
