Dating women have been sexually abused
I thought that the pain was behind me and I’d be fine. And neither was our marriage, because my “past” affected it, or I should say it “infected” it greatly.
I thought that marrying a man who was gentle and kind would lead to a healthy sex life together.
And if you’re experiencing this as well, I plead with you to please reach out for the help you need.
It’s important to properly deal with all that happened to you.
