Is The Use of Porn a Deal-Breaker In a Relationship?

    Depends on whether he has contrition and takes active steps to stop. Expecting perfection in this area isn't realistic today, sadly. But definitely a deal-breaker if he doesn't acknowledge there's anything wrong with it.

    This is a very difficult issue, to be sure. Of course, if the person had no regard for the importance of remaining pure and chaste with regards to pornography, then I would absolutely say that, yes, that would be a deal breaker. They are not capable of loving fully at that point in their lives. There is, however, the other side of people who STRUGGLE with a porn addiction or porn attachment. If I were in a relationship with someone who was truly trying to defeat their attachment to porn, and was completely open about their struggles, and how they are trying to fix it, I would not at all call that a deal-breaker. None of us are perfect, and to fight for what is right and to better yourself alongside another person is one of the most wonderful things in life. I say this as a man who used to struggle with a porn addiction, and only overcame it through the love and understanding of other people. If this is something you are struggling with, do not be afraid to open up about it outside of the confessional. It absolutely freed me, and it can free you as well.
