Misshalfway Posted June 26, 2012 Report Share Posted June 26, 2012 Misshalway hit the nail on the head again!--*I am pleading with you in what is about to follow*Please, Please, Please take a deep breath and think this through. If you go tell the Bishop it will only destroy trust in your marriage. Destroying trust over a matter as trivial as this is not worth it. Instead of going to the Bishop just express your concern to your husband. What you decide to do could be fatal to your marriage. Now I want to put things in perspective for you. Every single man has masturbated before, it is unavoidable. If a man tells you he has never masturbated in his life he is probably lying. Like Misshalway said, we make far to big of a deal about nothing. Why do you think Bishops always give the same talk to him? It is because they have all had similar struggles.Let me be clear. I did not say that masturbation was nothing. There is a reason why God wants us to restrain our sexual drives. But I see it more like how I teach my kids not to say swear words. They inevitably do, though. All you parents know exactly what I mean when your kid drops an "Oh my G**!" at Thanksgiving dinner. Like my nephew who said "Oh sh**!" when he lost his place in his talk in sac mtg. LOL. Doesn't mean I don't teach them not to swear. It just means I don't freak out while I'm doing it.Masturbation is the same thing. Some learn to control it early and some later. The less shame we feel about "normal" human sexuality, the better. Shame makes discipline so stinking messed up! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
