A conclusion drawn by the director of the organization that conducted the study:
“Pornography leads to emotional or physical affairs because it fosters three things that destroy true intimacy with a spouse: secrets, seclusion and self-focus.”
Secrets - Secrets kill relationships, and the spouse must desperately try to keep their porn use a secret because of the conflict it will cause.
Seclusion - In order to keep returning to porn, the spouse must go to great lengths to isolate parts of their lives from their spouse. They build up walls and refuse to be open and honest, which is the opposite to being a soul mate and trusted marriage partner.
Self-focus - Men addicted to porn have conditioned themselves to be selfish and demanding in many areas of their lives and it’s strangling their marriages.
