Hello, my name is Dora and I’d like to seek your advice in our situation. In Feb of this year I learned that my husband has been looking at pornography for 14-15 years of our 16 married years. He said he has been struggling to stop but he falls again. The news obviously hurt me deeply, so much so that it sent me to a deep depression with suicidal thoughts. I received counseling and help for my depression, and I was hospitalized for two weeks, and I’m doing much better. However, I still believe we need to seek marriage counseling and my husband should seek counseling for himself. We have a couple of “problems”: (1) we only want Catholic counseling, and (2) we are a military family and currently live in Germany, with one year left to go here and not sure where we’ll go next. There is no Catholic counseling here to our knowledge. What is your suggestion for us in our situation?
I look forward to hearing from you.
God bless,
Dora Orenchick

    Thanks to modern technology, you don’t need to be in the U.S. to find a Catholic marriage counselor. I work with couples all over the world via phone and Skype. Please feel free to call my office to schedule a free phone consultation. We can discuss your struggles and determine the best course of treatment. 610-397-0960.

Just a few weeks ago I submitted a testimony that was shared with other standers explaining that my husband told me he loved me, was in love with me, always had been, and always would be. The timing of his message was amazing…just 3 days after i contacted Fr Andrew for him to please bring my husband back…that I was struggling in my marriage and needed it back. Now I am beyond thankful and thrilled to share that my husband and I are together and we are stronger in our marriage because of Priest Andrew’s help.
