Hi Wondering,
I haven't been on here in quite awhile. My H & I travel full-time and back when we were just really beginning this journey on RN, I made an abrupt decision to stay near my kids and let him make the yearly trip to visit his family by himself. He left, did not call, write, Email... And, of course, my kids wondered and worried. I did not share details other than to say that we had some things to work out and I felt I needed some time apart. One of my daughters, out of the blue, one evening mentioned that one of her previous partners had had a problem with porn. I was surprised, still didn't say much about her Dad and I's issues, but we had quite a talk about having healthy boundaries and making good, choices for all involved. It was very hard for me to know she had had to deal with some of this, but, strangely soothing at the same time.
That period of time was hard for all of us to accept and understand, but I found out that my kids are very resilient and understanding and we are all still very close. H returned after visiting his family and we continued to work on RN.

Thank you for your post awake1! Our adult children have decided they don't want to talk about or know anything and that it's our issue to work out.

Maybe sometime they will be more accepting. Without money for counseling, or friends or anyone else to talk to about this or get help from...if it weren't for RN we would have been completely lost.

Recently we've found a 12 Step Group and are hoping and praying that, that will help.

Thank you ALL here on RN for everything you do to encourage and help!
