The dirty monkey on his back has ended our love

DEAR ABBY: For the past three years, I have been with a man who I believe is the love of my life.

Jeanne Phillips

Early on, he admitted to a porn addiction that has plagued him his entire life and sabotaged previous relationships. With my support, he began his first real attempt at recovery, which included a team of mental therapists.

His progress over the last three years, although not linear, has been enormous. He is a completely different person. I would describe our relationship as 90% gratifying, 10% pain (he has had four brief relapses where he has said incredibly hurtful things to me). I agree that the cycle must be broken and only he can do it.
