Many couples who work through recovery from sexual addiction, pornography addiction, and betrayal trauma end up staying together, but what happens to the betrayed women whose husbands choose not to continue working their recovery process?
In this episode, Geoff Steurer interviews Roxanne Kennedy, author of the newly released book “Cutting Ties”, where she shares her story of healing through the trials of sexual betrayal, fighting to save the marriage, divorce, and rebuilding her life.
Not only does she share her personal story, but she also offers hope to all women that they can heal no matter what happens to their marriage.

Alcoholism in a marriage IS a betrayal of marriage covenants.
Wolf82October 24, 2018
I am LDS and married to an alcoholic and it absolutely IS a betrayal of marriage vows. I don't believe my husband to be a bad person, but his lies and deceit surrounding his substance abuse are 100% a betrayal of trust in our marriage. I believe he does have a disease and I have empathy and love for him and have stood by him in a healthy way for 9 years, knowing and preparing myself and my children for the reality that one day I may very well have to walk away because of HIS choices. HIs initial CHOICE to use alcohol to begin with was exactly that.....a choice!!! His first 9 months of drinking while looking me strait in the eyes and telling me that nothing was wrong ..... betrayal. The things that he does while intoxicated are 100% a betrayal to marriage, family and Temple covenants. Not holding a temple recommend, or being able to perform ordinances or give priesthood blessings to myself and our children....all betrayals of covenants.
