About the Episode

In this episode of the Hope + Help Podcast, host Christine Chappell interviews Curtis and Jenny Solomon about their respective books, Redeem Your Marriage: Hope for Husbands Who Have Hurt through Pornography and Reclaim Your Marriage: Grace for Wives Who Have Been Hurt by Pornography. Some of the questions addressed in this interview are:

• What are common views some husbands might have regarding the use of pornographic materials? How do these views contrast with a biblical understanding of sexual sin?
• What are some common initial responses a wife might have after learning of her husband’s pornography use?
• What role does lament and repentance play in the life of a husband who has confessed his use of pornography?
• How can we comfort a wife whose husband does not view his pornography use as detrimental to their relationship or hurtful to her?
• What makes a husband’s wife his “second greatest ally” in the fight against porn?
• Does a wife hold the “keys” to her husband’s freedom from sexual sin?
• How do the Scriptures encourage women whose husbands are making imperfect yet earnest attempts to break free from pornography use?
