Couples in recovery from sex addiction are in a unique situation.
It requires patience, hard work and commitment to the healing process. A couple’s recovery as a team also depends on each partner’s individual recovery. While it is assumed that the addict will follow a program of recovery, it can often come as a surprise to the partner that his or her own recovery is of paramount importance.
It is up to the individual to decide whether to stay in or leave the relationship — nobody can make that choice for them.
